A male suspect known on the streets as "Scarface" is in custody for the brutal torture deaths of five dogs in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood, according to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. The no-kill dog rescue group is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible, and in a positive development, warrants are being sought against Scarface today. Stray Rescue's Randy Grim is ready to go.

Grim and Stray Rescue have been trained by Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce and her staff in the proper way to document the abuse they witness so that prosecution of the criminals is more likely. The five dogs were posthumously named by rescuers to honor their lives. Brandy, Schnapps, Frangelico, Grand Marnier and B&B would be happy to know that Grim is still fighting for them.
