Kyoko Smith = Bad to Dog

Teenage girl is accused of decapitating her grandmother's pet Shih-Tzu and keeping its head in her bedroom drawer and heart in the freezer

After allegedly decapitating her grandmother's Shih-Tzu dog, Kyoko Smith, 18, placed the dismembered head in her bedroom drawer.

Court records also stated that Smith cut the dog's heart out and kept it in a freezer and, according to a police affidavit, the teenager was alleged to have sent photos of the dead animal to her mother's phone.

Police were called to a property in Miller's Pond Circle in southeast Memphis on November 13, just one week after the teenager's 18th birthday, where investigators say Smith quickly admitted to killing the dog. According to local news network Fox13, a Shelby County judge charged Smith with killing the animal and released her on a $5,000 bail.

Judge William Anderson also ordered Smith to attend counseling as part of her bail conditions, and Smith is required to prove that she has been seeking psychological support before her next court appearance. Under Tennessee law, the killing of an animal is a Class E felony, which carries a prison sentence of between one to six years in prison...

We don't know the full story. This dog could have been pissing on her carpet, re-arranging her knife collection, or even badmouthing her on instagram. Let's not jump to conclusions.

Why keep the head in the drawer and the heart in the freezer? If she cared about decay she'd have put both in the freezer. If she didn't care about decay, both in the drawer. This inconsistency suggests actual legitimate mental illness to me, rather than headline-attention deliberate cruelty. I'm sad for the dog, of course, but the girl sounds like a victim of mental illness rather than a villain.

A "boyish" face. Kyoko's hormone profile may be "different". It may have relation to cruelty and violence with animals. The doctors and experts may explore.

Got a link or something to show that girls with "boyface" have hormone problems? I've never heard of that before.

As far as the rest goes, I hope she faces severe punishment. I'd say this was probably a revenge thing against her mom if she's sending her pics though.

I love dogs more than people, and I have 2 LAS. Love them to absolute death, and people being cruel to dogs sucks.

No. I'm too busy looking up information on girls who decapitate pet dogs and carve out their hearts.

Judging by your started thread count I'd say you're just googling "* arrested school shooting" but whatever floats your boat.

Now that we've established this is a consistent issue, perhaps we should merge it into a singular "person gets nabbed for planning school shooting" thread, eh?

Girl decapitates pet dog
Carves out the heart
Saves the pieces

All I can find is information on Korean cuisine. But the name Kyoko is Japanese. Then the boyface.

Depends on what you intend to do with the respective parts.

Plus imma run with cuckoo for cocoa puffs for anyone dismembering family pets and storing the body parts with the linens or food in purdy much any scenario.

Most people who do this tend to be men. Women who do this do seem to be lesbians with male tendencies.

I don't think the face is relevant.

No, he's one of the posters here that believe that any woman that commits violence is either a Trans man, a Lesbian, or in some other way more male than female.
