Cat found cut in half at Spruce Creek Fly-In

Workers setting up party items at a Spruce Creek Fly-In home on Sunday found half the body of a cat in the yard, sheriff's investigators said. 

 The cat's owner, Teresa Monda, 50, told deputies the partial remains of the cat were found in her front yard on Roscoe Turner Trail at the Spruce Creek Fly-in near Port Orange and it appeared to have been cut in half, according to a sheriff's report.

Monda said her cat usually roamed the neighborhood at night but returned home in the early morning hours. Monda could not look at the cat and provided a deputy with a photo which was similar to the cut-up cat, the report states.

Monda said she recently had a dispute with a neighbor but asked deputies not to question the neighbor, a report said.

Deputies checked in with security at the gated and exclusive Spruce Creek Fly-In neighborhood and were told that a report of a dismembered cat was made six months to one year ago but no suspects were developed.

Monda said she only wanted a police report to be made and did not want any law enforcement action taken due to insufficient evidence, the report said.
