Chief Judge, Kellyann M. Lekar: Max penalties, if found guilty, for the torture of Caleb the dog


On Feb 16 an animal crate was found along the side of a road in a rural area of Waterloo Iowa. The lifeless body of a dog was found. The body of the dog revealed the horrific story of a life of torture. A Dane Lab mix was either starved or dehydrated and covered in feces.

According to a hefty reward was placed in order to get information that led to the arrest of the person of this horrible crime, the Jesup Police Department arrested Ty Alyn Hickman.

At the moment Hickman is at Buchanan County Jail under the charge of aggravated misdemeanor that could lead to a 2-year incarceration if he is to be found guilty of the charges.

Maria Tiller, Waterloo animal control and code enforcement officer who was involved in the investigation and Diann Helmers of Agape Fosters are quoted on the following article.
