The tragic death of Kitty was brought to the attention of the Asheville Police Department (APD) after Veronica Coit of Asheville Cat Weirdos (a cat owners group) saw Kitty on Instagram. The cat had been tortured and ritualistically mutilated. She contacted the police.

In an interview with WLOS13, Veronica stated

“To think of what these monsters did to a cat that was sweet and friendly is awful.”

Shariah Jessamyn Metzger, 26, and Jace Lee Greene, 29 were charged with killing a cat in what could be a string of animal cruelty acts that were posted on social media. So far they’ve only been charged with ‘improper burial of an animal’. Police are still looking for Zackery Eugene Greene.

Metzger and Greene originally told APD that Kitty was their cat. Police have since learned Kitty belonged to Aaron Naster. A microchip confirms this.

In an article on Enquiring Minds Media, Veronica said

“..the Instagram photos of Kitty appeared online right before the group received warnings from concerned people in Charlotte, who had been tracking the Greenes and Metzger, that the trio might be headed to Asheville. Charlotte has experienced a rash of cat killings and maimings recently, and in July one Charlotte area cat was kidnapped and held for ransom.”

Kitty killed and mutilated

Veronica told APD Detective Sgt. John Zeigler she could identify the building in the Instagram photos and courageously followed them Saturday night until police arrived. The body was later found and was sent off for necropsy to determine whether Kitty was still alive when she was tortured.

Metzer posted bond and is out of jail while Jace Greene is still in jail.

Zackery Greene posted on his Facebook page that Kitty was already dead when he and his friends found him. 

“Threatening humans for desecrating road kill is out of line.”

Aaron Naster told News13 he didn’t know the three people allegedly responsible for Kitty’s death. Naster said Kitty went missing on October 22. He was adopted two years ago from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. The family describe Kitty as very friendly and said that’s how his alleged killers were able to get their hands on him. He loved everyone.

On Sunday, instead of preparing for Halloween, Aaron Naster and his children 21-year-old Charlie, 17-year-old Sydney and 13-year-old Giriffen, spent the day taking down Halloween decorations and replacing them with a memorial to Kitty.

Greene (not sure which one) has a prior record in NC that includes 14 arrests, including five driving while impaired arrests, hit/run leaving the scene with property damage, and assault by strangulation.

The trio, described as “drifters,” are maintaining their innocence. For any person to maliciously torture, mutilate, maim, cruelly beat, disfigure, poison, or kill any animal is considered a Class H misdemeanor.

  1. Hey esprit get a life you disgusting hippie. Why don’t you go take care of your kid that you gave fetal alcohol syndrome and stop worrying about me you fucking loser !!! How does it feel to know I was found not guilty but you have no life and keep trying to stir shit that doesn’t exist. Lose some weight and get a job ! Stop dwelling in your dad’s basement.

    • Thanks for commenting, Jace. Are you really Jace? If so, I’d like you to tell me more about yourself. Put the record straight. You were found not guilty. Can you tell me more about that?

      • You can tell it’s Jace CUZ HE TALKS LIKE A COMPLETE FUCKING PUSSY who’s mom beat his ass too hard so his head is a little screwed

    • Stop killing animals for Internet clout. Everyone KNOWS WHAT YOU DID. The only reason you got away with that you did was you used your dog to kill that person’s pet cat. GOOGLE DOESN’T FORGET BITCH and neither does the world!


    • Both my kids are straight A students, my youngest daughter is on honor roll and my oldest is going to collage. First of all WE DONT HAVE BASEMENTS IN CALIFORNIA(cuz we don’t have tornados here jackass),I live with my kids and husband in house we own(cuz I actually have family who give a fuck about me and left me property when they passed). I am finishing my Bachelor’s degree with a major in fine arts and have my own store.

    • Someone who isn’t guilty of the crime you claim you didn’t commit would’ve have posted this photo on Instagram. That’s why your Instagram account was closed by the moderators.

    • The gross crew bonded out like scared little bitches, probably sick of getting cheeks split

    • This is all Jace and Shariah did on the road…. You were so “train core” you hung out in the Asheville area for months on end…. Real train hoppers don’t stay in one place more than a few days.. you were a couch surfing housie bitch…. Go back to your mom’s house in Florida where you really are when you claim your hopping trains

    • Jace you need to wake the fuck up. Your actions HAVE consequences, be a FUCKING adult and TAKE responsibility for WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. You STOLE someone’s pet(and you claim to like animals/dogs, no one who likes animals did what you did) and brutally killed it. You stuck needles in an animals face, you stuck cigarettes in the cats skin, you laughed as your friend “displayed your kill”(you know why you kill people’s pets? Cuz you aren’t a real man. You’re a little bitch that got pushed around by Mommy and Daddy when you were little so you felt useless, the only way you could feel strong was by killing someone’s pet… Did that make your little tiny dick feel a little bit smaller after that Jace?). The only reason you got away with the crime was cuz you were tried in the state that has the least amount of animal rights laws in the US. I bet when you were in jail you didn’t dare tell anyone why you were in jail. Cuz everyone hates someone who fucks with cats. I bet you still were getting fucked with in that big boy jail cuz you’re a fucking pussy and the type of effeminate guy who gangsters love to push around and sodomize. You SHOULD be glad you live in America where you actually have rights cuz with the way you behave you would be killed anywhere else in the world. You’re a FUCKING pussy JACE.

    • She’s not the only person who hates you Jace. You should watch your back cuz there’s allot of people in this country with a concealed carry licenses (including me) who will not let you get away with anymore of this shit your pulling. Karma is real Jace and it’s coming for you. Karma doesn’t forget.
