Prepare yourself for some alarming news: There's a cat murderer on the loose in England. He or she has already taken the lives of hundreds of felines, and five new deaths have just been added to the toll in Northampton. The culprit is known by locals as the "Croydon Cat Killer," and they reportedly began their rampage in 2015. The killer's identity and motives are unknown, though everyone is well-aware of the gruesome tactics.
A cat was deliberately mutilated and its body placed on top of a car near its owner's home in Northampton. Two other pets have been killed and dumped in the town recently - could this be linked to the "Croydon Cat Killer"? https://t.co/licx3D0Pq7 pic.twitter.com/hzMzcxPInK— BBC News England (@BBCEngland) November 27, 2017
