South Bend, Ind. Thanks to more than a dozen tips, South Bend Police have developed a single person of interest in the investigation of 21 animals found dead in an alley near the 700-block of E. Indiana Ave.

Police did not name the person of interest, but say multiple tips named the same individual as a possible suspect.

Examinations are still being performed on the small animals at Purdue University, to determine exactly how the animals died. Physical evidence from the scene is also being processed.

Police are now calling for witnesses to come forward and state on the record what they have seen or heard first hand from the suspect, saying even one witness would greatly aid the investigation.
Neighbors discovered the animals bodies on March 27.

Since then, the national group Alley Cat Allies offered a $750 reward for information that leads to the arrest for the killing of multiple cats in the area.
