Some of you may remember Dale Bozzio as the weirdo frontwoman for ’80s New Wave band Missing Persons. Around New England, she’s come to be known as just another crazy cat lady.
Now, she’s a jailbird. A few weeks ago, Bozzio was sentenced to prison after being found guilty of animal cruelty. Turns out the ex-rocker and self-professed animal lover had more than 30 neglected felines in her home, including 14 dead ones. Many surviving kitties were euthanized, having been discovered in horrific condition.
A story like this is often viewed as just another eccentric person being eccentric, however, the Boston Phoenix has gotten its hands on some of the photographs that were presented in evidence at her trial.
WARNING: If you are a cat lover or animal lover or basically a human being with a soul, these photos are VERY VERY GRAPHIC.
And here’s a video of Bozzio in *better* days:
