Sheriff’s Office Finishes Cat Killed Investigation

By  | 

BELLVILLE - The Austin County Sheriff's Office has sent its investigation of the Brenham veterinarian who bragged on Facebook about killing a cat to the District Attorney's Office.

"At 7:59 this morning, the Austin County Sheriff has completed the investigation of the Animal Cruelty case first reported to us last Friday. The completed case file has been turned over to the Austin County District Attorney for filing of charges under Texas Penal Code 42.092.”

The District Attorney’s Office tells News 3 that D.A. Travis Koehn was in court all morning. But he started to review the case Tuesday afternoon. He has not yet decided whether to file charges.

Kristen Lindsey posted the controversial photo on Wednesday. She was fired by the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham on Friday. The Sheriff’s Office opened its investigation the same day.

The Sheriff’s Office was expecting to speak with Lindsey early this week. We do not know whether that happened before it wrapped up the investigation.
