Oklahoma Woman Mutilates Cat to Make Costume for Lady Gaga Concert
Twenty-year-old Angelina Barnes of Oklahoma City was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after she killed and mutilated the family cat in order to make a costume she intended to wear to a Lady Gaga concert, KFOR 4 reports.
A relative of Barnes returned to their home in Northwest Oklahoma City to find all the lights in the house turned off, the switches covered in duct tape to keep them off. The relative then found Angelina dressed in a long coat with streaks of cat blood on her face. “This person became very afraid that the suspect was going to try to do harm to her,” policeman Gary Knight told KFOR.
The young woman then asked for help and was taken to the hospital. There, she allegedly threatened a male nurse with a piece of glass.
Investigators back at the house found purple hair dye and blood all over the bathroom floor, along with the body of a drowned 15-year-old tabby cat. The poor animal had its eyes mutilated and had been slit open along its belly. Its liver was found in a makeup case on the bathroom counter.
According to KFOR, Barnes suffers from depression but those close to her claim this shockingly violent behavior was “completely out of character.”
