We could have run this update as early as Saturday, September 3, but decided not to let Ms. Frazier intrude on readers’ Labor Day weekend.
Last Friday, Wilana Frazier appeared in court for a pre-trial hearing. Her next hearing is scheduled for 9/27. We will not forget about the case as the weeks pass, nor will many who wish to see justice for Dexter kitten and his sibling.
Wilana Frazier’s next court appearance in the animal cruelty case over her alleged killing of Dexter kitten and Dexter’s little companion, set for September 27, is yet another pre-trial appearance as far as we know. The September 2 trial resulted in Ms. Frazier buying some time by waiving her right to a speedy trial, a common practice.
Some have asked us how and where Wilana Frazier and her children got ahold of Dexter and the other kitten. While we do not not for sure, and have net been able to verify it, someone purporting to be a neighbor says that the Frazier children stole a bike from her children and after she took it back the Fraziers catnapped her kittens and used then to extract vengeance. This story is just hearsay as far as we know. If anyone has validation for this, or can supply any credible information to either support or debunk it, or to otherwise provide background to the case, please contact us.
The Care2 petition seeking justice for Dexter and his little companion, and asking for rigorous prosecution and maximum punishment, remains open. There are currently (as of this writing) 43,141 signatures, with a goal of 50,000. We know many readers have signed and shared. Anyone who cares and has not signed or shared still has the opportunity to be heard on this horrific animal cruelty case.
