Kyoko’s brutal act came into light when she started circulating graphic pictures of the dead Lucy. It was then discovered that she had not only cut off Lucy’s head, but also stuffed the dog’s mutilated head in a dresser. Later, the cops found that Kyoko had stuffed Lucy’s heart in the freezer.

Many neighbors have come forward to express their concern over Kyoko’s troublesome behavior and her tendency to stalk other dogs. Apparently, Kyoko was “having problems” and her grandmother was helping toward her care. As of now, people from Kyoko’s “last known address” refuse to recognize her. Spread the word and help the cops find and arrest this dangerous woman.
