Should the investigators disclose the name of the suspect in the Sage the Cat torture and killing?

SAGE INVESTIGATION UPDATE: This news excites us! We’ve increased the fund drive. We have gotten permission to get the collar DNA tested that the family found Sage wearing the morning he returned home. The collar did not belong to the family and it has been widely speculated that the collar was used to control him while being tortured.

I like this too. The statement hints that the collar on Sage at the time that he was found tortured and badly injured was placed on him by the perpetrator of the crime or an accomplice. If there are human traces of DNA on it it may match someone on a police database. Let’s hope.

The private investigation had gone quiet for a while. This is a hopeful development. My thanks to the lady who notified me of this. The criticism I have is why this test was not done at the beginning of the first investigation? What happened to the police’s commitment to find the perpetrator?

  1. sorry I made a typo under Utah law polygraphs are not admitted into court as evidence.

    I also read that she claims her sister found sage. per the post and video I saw, now its her sister in law.

    the pi says the owner wouldn’t of have hurt sage cause they didn’t fit the type and loved him.

    so the bottom line is this, when one chases bs… usually ends up in a dead end.

  2. today, read a few posts not from facebook about justice for sage. the local fox station is going to air another story on him nov 9.. however, I feel like I have been validated from what I read. It said that the Gomez household had more than one or two cats. So the cats that were tortured after sage, turned up to be strays>>> give me a break. no one came for them.. and now I read those incidents are not related to sage. Please how stupid do you think we are. More Gomezs are popping up claiming to want this case resolved. So why don’t they continue to ham it up.

    now we are back to the stupid story about how sage was found in the house. Have they forgot about the story they told inside edition to finding him in the front yard. And I read a post from way back from a vet tech that was great. This person said that urine etc from sage will be left behind. None of them even bothered to learn about cat behavior or check out scratches or bites. Sage sounds like he was a dominant cat. He wouldn’t have gone down without a fight unless of course he was slammed into a wall and his brain was compromised. Oh yes, I sure didn’t want to forget the mystery man and the polygraph text… You know those test under Utah law are admitted into a court here. So how many lies can she tell and how many lies will the pi chase. As you can see, nothing is coming out from the vets.. I sure would like to know if they believe the cat walked home on his own power since his brain was compromised.

    anyway, there will be a live stream of the story again. just thought you might want to know. Yep, we can watch her play act etc..

  3. I do understand what you are saying. However, I found that his investigation continues to go in the wrong direction. First her crap story how sage made it home on his own power. Then there is some man living in the house… then she tells inside edition he was found in the front yard. Then her taking pictures of sage with the collar on. Then her taking all the horrible pictures of sage. if he had been my cat, I would have him at the er not taking pictures.

    Now we have this Jensen guy defending them. Now we have him leading this investigation as saying juveniles. I am frustrated with him. The truth could be staring him in the face, and he wouldn’t deal with it. This is one of the main reasons I cant stand reading what he goes on about.

  4. you are so correct. so many lies.. so many dead ends. many of us agree about who did this.

    even now, there are times when I see sages pictures and I just loose it and cry. I live in Utah. The laws here reflect the mental majority of the people of this state. I took a cat in who was being neglected and abused. I realized nothing was going to change. So I just took the cat. After 1000.00 or so, the cat is doing much better. our vet xrayed his lungs because he has asthma. Well to our surprise, he has a prior injury where he was kicked in the chest. yes its healed, but surgery will do him in.

    Many of us our very sensitive and it just hurts. I have reached the point, that I quit reading the posts on facebook. And I am sadden to say they got away with murder.

    • Joanne, I understand about not reading stories of cat abuse. It hurts us and can damage us psychologically. The same for videos and photos. In fact they are even worse. This story is depressing and there are so many like it. Cats abusers are rarely caught and prosecuted.
