Animal Care Services investigators determined that the dead dogs in a photo posted to facebook by a 16-year-old were not killed by the teen. The photo went viral on the web, causing animal lovers nationwide to respond. Authorities determined the dogs were killed by a car not the teenager. Animal Care Services also responded to the investigation on facebook with the following comment, "You may have seen recent media reports here in
San Antonio about two dogs reportedly killed by a teenager who then
posted pictures of the pets on Facebook. We know there has been a lot of
concern surrounding these pictures and wanted to provide this quick
update. Animal Care Services has been
working with the San Antonio Police Department to investigate this
alleged cruelty case since being notified of the pictures several days
ago. It has been determined the dogs in question were actually hit by a
passing car while roaming in the street and were not killed by the teen
who posted the pictures of their remains. While we disagree with the
posting of the pictures and the tenor of the attached comments, there is
no evidence to support further investigation into animal cruelty."

Texas police nab suspect in postal worker's death
May 19, 2013 19:58 GMT
HOUSTON (AP) -- Police say they have taken into a custody a man they believe may be linked to the killing of a U.S. postal worker in suburban Houston.
The San Jacinto County Sheriff's Office said on Sunday they had taken 36-year-old James Wayne Ham into custody. Postal inspectors say Ham is a lead suspect in the killing of 52-year-old Marie Youngblood.
The postal carrier's body was found late Friday inside her burned out SUV. Investigators believe Youngblood was shot, and later transported to her burned out Jeep Cherokee.
Inspectors say a postal worker was last killed in Texas about 30 years ago.
