Report: Two Men Arrested in Alpaca Slayings in Essex

23-year-old Shawn Malcarne 21-year-old Kyle Rosetti, both of Westbrook, face numerous charges in the stabbing deaths of four alpacas in December, police say.


Two men from Westbrook were arrested Tuesday night in connection with the at Applesauce Acres farm in Essex last December, according to the Middletown Press.

21-year-old Kyle Rossetti and 23-year-old Shawn Malcarne face multiple charges, including third degree burglary and conspiracy to commit animal cruelty, the report says.

The two men turned themselves into police around 5 p.m. Both are due to be arraigned Wednesday.

More arrests are pending, the report says.

Shortly after the deaths of the animals two days before Christmas, the owner of the farm offered $13,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case.

History is full of high-profile examples of this connection: •Patrick Sherrill, who killed 14 coworkers at a post office and then shot himself, had a history of stealing local pets and allowing his own dog to attack and mutilate them. •Earl Kenneth Shriner, who raped, stabbed, and mutilated a 7-year-old boy, had been widely known in his neighborhood as the man who put firecrackers in dogs rectums and strung up cats. •Brenda Spencer, who opened fire at a San Diego school, killing two children and injuring nine others, had repeatedly abused cats and dogs, often by setting their tails on fire. •Albert DeSalvo, the "Boston Strangler" who killed 13 women, trapped dogs and cats in orange crates and shot arrows through the boxes in his youth. •Carroll Edward Cole, executed for five of the 35 murders of which he was accused, said his first act of violence as a child was to strangle a puppy. •In 1987, three Missouri high school students were charged with the beating death of a classmate. They had histories of repeated acts of animal mutilation starting several years earlier. One confessed that he had killed so many cats he'd lost count. Two brothers who murdered their parents had previously told classmates that they had decapitated a cat. •Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer had impaled dogs heads, frogs, and cats on sticks.
