not always pursued
About five years ago my daughter’s cat had lighter fluid poured on him and was set on fire, then thrown in the air. The cat managed to get home, more dead than alive. Dr. Kessen in Delphos saved his life after many surgeries to remove most of his ear and lots of dead skin. God bless Dr. Kessen.
The person who committed this crime was charged. Witnesses came forward at some risk to their own families. He appeared in court once and the case was postponed. He never appeared in court again. My daughter has seen him in Lima but the police have not pursued the case. He got away with this crime.
Good luck on getting Mr. Phalen convicted. The system does not always work.
