Man accused of torturing ‘Ollie’ the dog charged with 17 counts of cruelty

The Hollywood, Florida man accused of torturing and stabbing a young pit bull named Ollie has been charged with 17 counts of aggravated animal cruelty on Friday – one charge for each deep stab wound and one charge for stuffing the defenseless dog in a suitcase and abandoning him behind a building in the rear of an alley.

The Sun Sentinel reports the suspect, Brendan Evans remains in custody at the Broward County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond. His attorney, Sarah Anne Mourer, has not commented on Assistant State Attorney Alex Urruela’s decision to charge Evans with multiple counts of cruelty in the egregious case of torture and suffering the young dog endured. A necrospy of the dog revealed 16 deep stab wounds in addition to nearly 35 superficial wounds.

Ollie was discovered on October 10, behind an abandoned home on Lee Steet – not far from where Evans lived. The dog had been stuffed into a blue hard covered suitcase – only his paw stuck out, but his heartbreaking cries of fright and pain were heard by a couple who noticed the suitcase lying in the alley while walking by. Although veterinarians had hoped the dog would survive, Ollie died two days later. His story sparked outrage across the country. A search for the heartless culprit was immediately launched by detectives with the Hollywood police.

After an investigation and a search of Evans’ apartment almost one month after Ollie’s death, shocking information was released by police describing the discovery of two severed cat paws and mutilated rats left in the freezer. Authorities also found an 18-inch machete and knives covered in blood. Evans has professed to being a voodoo priest – practicing an Afro-Caribbean religion that uses animals as sacrifices.

Evans has a history of other unrelated crimes and had been on probation for a 2015 burglary. In addition, his fingerprints were linked to an August burglary which means he “can be classified as a habitual violent felony offender” doubling the animal cruelty offense from five years to ten if found guilty.

    I’m glad the judge sentenced him that way….he needs to be locked up and the key thrown away……he will be a repeat offender an should never be put out on the streets again to hurt anyone else.

    I can teach this voodoo priest, want to be, that you don’t do this to any animals. WHAT A JOKE. This is one sick POS that needs a lesson in humanity, the hard way. Put his butt in jail and forget him. Better yet, let we animal activist have him for a while. We can show him what kind of pain he put Ollie through. The sentence needs to be severe with no plea deals. Just HARD TIME. Start with one year for EVERY wound that Ollie had and add 20 for the pain and suffering that Ollie had to endure by this POS. May I suggest a “Firing Squad”. Save us all a lot of time and money.

    Do to him what he did to Ollie, and then let the inmates have a whack at him until his life is gone. No being nice to these scum and providing meals to them each day.

    Hopefully he will 10 years for each count for a total of 170 years! Maybe there will be an update when he is sentenced?

    Why waste taxpayer’s money to prosecute this hunk of ripe garbage? Just nail him to a tree and leave him to the elements OR hogtie his useless ass and throw him in the everglades – all he is good for is gator lunch. I hope his time in jail is one of torture and he is made a victim every day all day long – this bastard deserves the absolute worst – voodoo priest my ass, this hunk of sewer sludge is nothing more than an animal abuser.
