Jason Brown, 25, from Nevada, seemed like a normal “clean-cut kid” who offered to take dogs and puppies from people who were giving them away for free. He replied to many Craigslist ads and assured people he would get the dogs loving homes. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case.
Animals Found In Hotel Room
Brown did not find the animals other homes, but tortured and killed them. After a dismembered dog was found in his hotel room in Reno, he was arrested. On further investigation, four dog's heads were found in the hotel room fridge as well.
Evidence in Videos
As Brown had taken videos of what he was doing, there was enough evidence to put him away. The jury heard the terrifying screams from the animals as Brown tortured them. In one of the videos they heard Brown saying: “I’m making a jacket out of them. The little white Chihuahuas are my favourite. If I get one of those, they are coming to Jason’s house of pain.”
Brown was sentenced to up to 28 years in prison and won’t be eligible for parole for 11 years, due to the disturbing nature of his crime. Judge Elliot Sattler was shocked by the images seen and the cruelty shown by Brown. This is a case the judge and jury will never forget.
According to Brown, he was doing drugs at the time and was not in control of what he was doing.
