In the same city that serial killer Son of Sam lived, police have arrested a man who is charged with killing over 25 cats.

Authorities charged Rene Carcamo, 60, with animal cruelty and violation of environmental conservation law in the case.

The discovery by public works employees last April was as horrifying as it was heartbreaking – 25 dead cats hanging from a tree.

Officials say Carcamo of Yonkers illegally disposed of the dead cats by placing them in plastic bags and hanging them from a tree on Overlook Terrace in Yonkers. That’s a violation of environmental conservation law.

He is also charged with two counts of animal cruelty for failure to provide medical attention for two kittens, discovered in his possession by the HLE Unit during its investigation in July, WABC reports.
