A St. Louis woman was arrested after she bragged on Facebook about being “on killa mode,” and hash-tagging that “all dogs don’t go to heaven.”

The St. Louis Animal Cruelty Task Force said Adrienne Martin set fire to a three-year-old shepherd-terrier mix in the backyard of a home on the city’s north side on July 10th, and then posted on Facebook about what she had done.

The dog, dubbed Brownie, was discovered by his owner, who called police. It was initially reported in St. Louis that Martin was the owner, but a later Facebook post by the woman indicates that she was not.  It has been reported that the dog belonged to her sister.

Brownie was rescued from his tether of a short, heavy chain after having been severely burned and abandoned.  He was taken to Stray Rescue of St. Louis for medical treatment, but sadly died due to organ failure.

When I got the call he passed away, all I could do was cry and then pray for the strength to make sure justice is served,” said Randy Grim, founder of Stray Rescue. “This is one of the saddest and worst cases I have ever dealt with.”

That combination of arrogance and evilness is a volatile combination,” Grim noted. “We’re all safer with her behind bars.”

A $5,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Brownie’s killer, but she made herself known by boasting about her heinous act. Though she initially denied having burned Brownie to police, she later admitted her horrific crime.

It has stricken our community to the core of our hearts, but I am inspired by how swiftly we have been able to respond to these awful cases,” Grim said. “Brownie deserves justice.”

Martin, who has a criminal history and was previously charged with endangering the welfare of a child, was charged with felony animal abuse and felony “knowingly burning” an animal.

We see a ton of abuse cases, far too many, but the way in which Brownie suffered really struck a nerve with everyone,” said Grim. “Our community is sick and tired of these horrific crimes, and they will not be tolerated.”

    • This is not a human, she is a PILE, POS. How I would love to face her. Scum of the earth. Watch your children they are next. Hope she gets locked up with some mean women in prison and a huge fine. She doesn’t belong back on the street. How I hate her and I know I am not suppose to hate anyone.
      Send her to Florida, I have never been to jail but my BIL is the Warden there.

      • “she is not a human.”

        “Watch your children they are next.”

        It amazes me how people, who could possibly be older than me, don’t really even think about what they’re saying.

    • exactly candice sick sick woman hope they lock the door and throw away the key How could any sane person do such a thing that poor dog must have been in agony.

    • A fat ugly trashy hoe with no life. Probably fuc#ked up on drugs. Since nobody is brave enough to kill her, I hope she gets tittie cancer or meets an 18 wheeler on the way to her next bootie call

  1. Dear God in heaven, please restore the soul of this dear innocent animal so that he may love and live once more in your kingdom. I have to believe there is a place that this beast of a woman will have to repent. If I had my way, she would be put to death because she is without a soul. I did not expect to see pictures and I want to throw up. I resent bitterly that the taxpayers money will be spent keeping her sorry insane ass alive. Think about it, when you don’t have enough money to pay for fruit for your kid’s lunches this monster gets to eat in prison. Make you angry? It does me. I don’t just want her put in jail, I want her to never see the light of day again. Now I am going to go and throw up.

    • I agree with you! I am SO flippin angry over this! I hope someone gets her sorry disgusting loathful self the same way and WORSE than what she did to this dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is evil scum and I will jump for joy when she rots and burns in hell for all of eternity..she should be put to death for what she did! I hope an angry mob takes care of her sorry butt! I believe that dog is in Heaven, I am so sorry that it suffered so terribly and I wish all hell on that ugly disgusting horrible Scum!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I couldn’t have said it better myself. I am so appalled I’m speechless. I saw those pictures and just cried. I’m sitting here dumbfounded. Her day of judgement will come!!!! Thank you for taking the words out of my mouth.

    • just think our tax dollars will be spent to get her sorry ass a lawyer to try to get her off or lowered sentence yada yada . this putrid circle goes on and on.geuss what folks ten to one says her kid will be a drain on the tax base all the rest of its life.

  2. She sounds mentally unstable and a threat to resur to both animals and likely children. People who can do unspeakable acts to animals and have no remorse are likely to also assault or commit horrid crimes to humans as well. No animal is safe until this women is locked up for life in a mental institution.

  3. Why post the pictures of this poor dog??? At a minimum, make someone who wants to see them have to click into a file to view. You can’t miss seeing them. My kids look at this sight often! We already knew from reading that it would be bad…why sensationalize this brutality and traumatize those of us that care, and validate the idiots that actually liked what this unstable, unfeeling witch posted on FB?

    • Actually, at first I thought, “are you kidding me?!” When I read that the following pictures were graphic…. But before seeing them it all seemed so surreal, the story. After seeing the pictures, it clicked that yes, this really did happen. In this world of sensationalizing, and atrocities, I think that real pictures sometimes have a place with some stories. I know this sounds weird, but we looked into the eyes of that awful woman, why should Brownie not get the sympathy she deserves when we looked into her eyes?

      • I agree with you Debbie, I know the pictures are hard to see because of our love for animals. Brownie deserves to be seen. I am kind of happy he passed away so he does not have to feel the pain anymore. What a sweet soul. If I could help the monster that did this get more jail time, I would be first in line. It upsets me that all the animals want from us is love, to feed them and make sure they are safe and healthy. They give unconditional love and companionship, how could anyone harm such loving animals. 🙁

    • To Anonymous: I understand your concern about your children, as I have children to, but I also strictly monitor their internet use. Society NEEDS to see these photos, because nothing will ever change as long as people ignore the torture, abuse, starvation, neglect, and even “euthanasia” in shelters(which by the way, is not peaceful or pain free) of millions of animals in the US every year. These animals feel horrific pain, and they suffer and die alone while most human beings avoid the “problem” with their apathy, instead of being part of the solution. A picture truly is worth a thousand words.

      As Albert Schweitzer once said, “Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”

      • l totally agree with you. l saw an old biblical film of Christians being killed in the arena, by obviously stuffed fake lions, which caused many complaints from parents over their child distress. Whether it be Christians, tortured animals, abused children, someone dying from Cancer, obviously upsetting, infuriating, but if they can endure it the very least we can do is witness it, condemn and change things so it wont happen again, and care about their suffering. To not acknowledge it because its distressing and unpleasant gives license for it to continue. Orwellian existence.

  4. imagine that…N St Louis! i mean it’s not lke thy value ANY life, much less that of something that doesn’t put up a fight or CAN’T put up a fight because they have a heavy chain arounf their neck!!! anyone know of any dog lovers serving time in the STL jail that’ll ‘teach her a lesson’?
