Upon examination, it was determined that the puppy was a small, tan-colored, mixed-breed female and was actually burned alive.

Following an investigation, police were able to track down 20-year-old Willie Bee Turner as a potential suspect thanks to tips from the public. On Thursday, Turner was arrested and his bail was set at $35,000. He is currently being held at Sacramento County Main Jail on charges of animal cruelty.
