  • This website is such a slippery slope of sensationalism that violates the very presumption of innocence they are so careful to remind us of in their little disclaimer! The “fugitives” in question here are not fugitives at all, but are appearing for their court date in November to fight for the truth and their complete innocence. They were working at the residence in question, and had the gall to report the owner to the SPCA for what they saw as unrepentant mistreatment and poor care of the animals there. They never stole anything ever! The garage was never locked and they had no idea of any of this until the cops showed up and arrested them. This was a total case of powerful person pissed off that someone reported her shoddy animal care to authorities and she got even in a BIG way. Go America!
