24 years old Vicasso Lara looks like any other ordinary American youngster. However, the ordinary face had a hidden side that shocked the entire county of Lee beyond imagination. The well being check of the 4500 blocks of 20th Street opened up a different world inside the compound

With a pool of blood all around the main entrance, there were several bloody footprints alongside the entire area. Following the trail through the bloody footprints, the officers were in for a larger shock waiting for them at the rear end of the residence. 

Covered in more blood than one could imagine, the footprints led the officers to the kitchen where a huge dog was lying inside a hot oven with the temperature set to the highest setting. Before it could completely burn down, the officers removed the dead dog for further investigation.
