Dog Abuse

Suspect Arrested in Washington Dog Rape/Murder Case

Diamond

A suspect was arrested Saturday in Grays Harbor County, Washington for the brutal sexual assault and murder of a dog found hanging by her neck from a tree in March.

A mountain biker came across a dead dog hanging from a tree branch in the Summit Lake area of Thurston County, Washington on March 21.   A veterinary necropsy showed that the dog had been brutally sexually assaulted before being hung, and finally dying of asphyxiation.

James Leroy Evans, 33, Was Arrested For The Brutal Rape And Murder Of Diamond.
James Leroy Evans, 33, was arrested for the brutal rape and murder of Diamond.

The suspect, James Leroy Evans, 33, was arrested Saturday on a charge of first-degree animal abuse by Thurston County Joint Animal Services and is being held on $50,000 bail. Evans is a convicted felon whose criminal history includes domestic violence, burglary and controlled substance charges. The case aired on “Washington’s Most Wanted” last week and generated tips that ultimately led to the suspect.

Evans told investigators he killed the dog because she killed his pet iguana.

In court records, authorities said  Evans “seemed pleased with himself” over killing Diamond. “I believe that Mr. Evans felt like he was doing the right thing by putting her down,” Thurston County animal control officer Erika Johnson told Q13 Fox.

Erika Johnson, while working the case, had originally named the dog “Justice.” But, investigators have since learned her name was Diamond.  A 3-year old Pitbull mix, Diamond worked as a therapy dog for her owner’s 8 year old son.

Diamond was temporarily staying with Evans, who offered to care for her while her owners found permanent housing that allowed dogs. Diamond had only been living with Evans for about four days before she was raped and killed.

“What this man allegedly did to Diamond is unspeakable; she suffered tremendously before she died.  This person is a danger to animals and people.  This will forever be a case that is burned into my mind and my heart,” Pasado’s Safe Haven’s lead investigator said.  “Diamond will never be forgotten, and she will continue to drive me to pursue the monsters who abuse and neglect animals.”

Evans’ next court appearance is scheduled for April 26.

    This sick fuck needs to be castrated and gang raped for every day he is in jail. Then hung by a tree and watch him die while occasionally hitting him with plastic pipes and setting his feet on fire. Oh and let’s not forget the target practice with a bow gun.

    Hard to believe that if a dog attacked another dog or human they would be destroyed as being too dangerous for society yet scum like this will never get the sentence deserved for the crime … Tougher sentencing is needed world wide . I despair of the human race sometimes ..

    This idiot needs to get what he deserves when he goes to prison…. He don’t deserve to breath air on this earth. Wether it be an animal or a person, god put them on this earth for a reason. And not for him to torture and kill her. Sick sick sick sorry excuse for a human. I’m glad he’s going to prison cause he will get what he deserves. I’m so sorry for diamond to have to suffer the way she did. But she is in heaven safe from idiots like him…

    It’s a felony so hopefully ihe will get the maximum sentence. Probably have to put him in solitary but lm sure there will be plenty of people who would like to run into him. Me included. I’d like to introduce him to a broomstick and throw him off the side of a road to die.

    This sick SOB needs to be TORTURED AND BRUTALLY KILLED just as he did to this precious dog. I think his private parts need put onto a rock and beat him til he dies. I HATE ANYONE WHO WOULD HARM OR KILL AN ANIMAL. PLEASE don’t keep IT in jail for taxpayer money to feed and clothe.
