    A telephone call at midnight normally would have awoken Bill Whiting, but he hadn't been sleeping much since his dog disappeared. He picked up the phone and couldn't believe what he heard.
    Children were demanding $600 or else they would kill Edna, his beloved beagle mix. Whiting listened in horror to what sounded like the jingle of Edna's collar, and an animal yelping in pain. He agreed to pay the ransom.
    "You don't understand, mister," a boy replied. "I want to kill your dog anyway."
    What happened to Edna remains a mystery, but Philadelphia police have charged a 15-year-old with harassment, terroristic threats, theft by extortion and other counts for allegedly calling Whiting. Police have yet to find the dog.

    That's such a horrible thing to do to someone who has lost a pet, this kid is a complete sociopath. Lock him up for the rest of his life, before he starts kidnapping young children.
    At 15, i can't imagine the depravedness of even doing such at thing, at any age. He's 15 starting with pets, next it's children. Small things that are easy for him to carry away.

    Serial killer in the making, I believe. And, this may sound cold, but whomever said those unconscionable words may be past the point of any measure of rehabilitation.

    My heart hurts for poor Edna and Mr. Whiting who loves her so much. This is so sad, and it makes my blood boil.

    Oh my, this kids has problems...charge him to the FULL extent of the law, PLEASE!!!!!!!!
    I feel SO sorry for the owner...2 years ago I had a yorkie (who unfortunately had to be put to sleep) who was almost like another child to me. His death brought a sadness to me that still brings tears to this day.
