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.”

  1. Killing a dog should be treated as murder. The agony this poor dog suffered is unimaginable. This “woman” should at the very least, have her hand held over an open flame until her flesh blisters, cracks open & peels from her hand…

  2. If she goes out, the next victim could be a kid or any person, She is evil, make sure she stays in jail for the rest of her life, Her head is sick and won’t be ok never! She is dangerous for the whole world!

  3. Lord there is no limit of craziness!!! She should be locked up in a room and set a fire in the house!!! Go to Hell………….

  4. Take a good look at this piece of work…You are staring into the face of PURE EVIL! If there is any justice in the world…this Monster will rot in prison for the remaining (hopefully SHORT) years, months or hours of her life! A creature (she is not human) that could perform these kind of horrific actions on a living being, that speaks such horrible thoughts, and seems to get such enjoyment out of death and torture … cannot be allowed to live in our society.
