Suspect & fugitive in Edna case arrested

Victor Rodriguez, the 15 year old who has been under a bench warrant by the Philadelphia police for failure to appear at his arraignment, was apprehended today and is in police custody. He is the suspect sought for having placed terroristic and extortionistic phone calls to Bill Whiting while torturing a dog he claimed to be Bill's dog, Edna.

The Justice for Edna rally & press conference is Wednesday (see previous blog post for more details) in front of the Verizon building in Philadelphia at 1717 Arch Street. William B. Petersen, the President of Verizon PA, will be asked to accept the 839 pages of the petition that was signed by more than 5000 people from all over the world.

That anyone (particularly a child)would commit such a horrific act makes me fear for the future of mankind. That over 5000 people spoke out against this cruelty against a pet and owner they had never met - gives us HOPE. Thanks to all who signed the petition and thanks to Anita for alerting us!
