The Evansville Police Department is investigating an animal cruelty case where a cat was seemingly burned to death.

They first got a complaint call about the dead cat just after 6 p.m. Saturday night.

"The reporter stated that she found the burnt carcass of a cat and she knew where the suspect could be," police reports state.

When officers arrived on scene, the caller states she did not see the cat get killed but she believed she knew who did it. She also said she saw someone burning something a few nights ago but did not know what it was.

EPD officers were unable to locate that male subject.

Animal Control also responded to the scene, taking the cat with them.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
