Ty Hickman of Jesup Iowa.
Ty Hickman was arrested Thursday night in Jesup and taken to Buchanan County Jail. A Waterloo code enforcement officer, Maria Tiller, says Hickman is charged with a misdemeanor charge of animal torture. Online court records don't list the name of Hickman's attorney.
The carcass and kennel were found February 16 on the east side of Waterloo. Waterloo Animal Control says the carcass was covered in feces and urine and it looks like the dog died of starvation or dehydration.
A reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction had reached $7,500. Tiller says tips from the public led to the arrest.
I hope this pig rots in hell.
Update March second: he was released from jail last night and didn't have to pay any bail to get out :( more than likely there will be more arrest to follow! His "friends" rolled on him (more than likely for the reward) and that is why we need high reward amounts for future cases like this, money talks!!!!
