Johnny Lewis

Beat, Dismembered


9/28/2012 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Lewis
murdered his landlady and then fell to his death -- but he also viciously took the life of the landlady's cat by beating it to death and DISMEMBERING it in the process ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story that Lewis -- who appeared on "Sons of Anarchy" -- seemed to be on PCP or meth, because he had exhibited superhuman strength as he fought two neighbors immediately after committing murder.

Law enforcement sources tell us Lewis went wild on landlady Catherine Davis' cat ... kicking and beating the life out of the animal and "tearing it apart." Law enforcement tells us Lewis did NOT use a weapon, but rather his bare hands and feet.

Lewis is the only suspect in the murder and cat killing. We're told cops are confident -- Lewis was the culprit.

Glad the sick **** fell off the roof so the family wont have to endure a trial. Tmz, please for once try to realize that a real human being died who has family, don't make this more painful by describing everything down to the tiniest detail. The cat descrption was too much.

That picture is so sad, what a beautiful woman and cute cat. They didn't deserve such a horrible death, glad the prick died. Hope her family and friends can find some peace after this brutality.

It's a shame that this old lady who was his landlord was brutally murdered along with her cat because his hard drug induced madness. If you are a "down and out", depressed Hollywood actor who is hell bent on self destruction then you should leave other people out of it and fry your brain and rot away .... by yourself. They should suffer from their drug demons BY THEMSELVES if they refuse to go to rehab.

Katy Perry dated Johnny back when he was on that TV show "The O.C.". I'm sure lots of chicks all over America thought he was a good looking, cool guy back then. Katy went out with him for nearly a year in 2005-2006 before she got super successful. Johnny was starting to get deep into drugs back then. I think Katy wrote her song "Circle the Drain" because of Johnny and other guys she dated over the years. It's a song about her having a drug crazed boyfriend and how frustrated she was with him because he was throwing his life away.

Hopefully, Katy will continue to keep the druggies in the Hollywood party scene the hell away from her. If Katy has any more drug crazed friends, she should let the addiction professionals try to "save them from themselves" and just avoid them like they have a super contagious disease.

WOW! What a bunch of worthless haters. It's a sad situation that anyone involved died. It's presumed that he was high on meth. Which would be why all of this happened. Another young soul lost to early because of drugs.

If this were my grandmother, let alone my cat., and this washed up, drugged out D List celebrity so much as looked at them the wrong way, I would have split open and broken his pretty little nose.

Worthless haters! Nobody has anything nice to post. It's a good thing all you a$$holes are so wonderful. Hope nobody close to you ever has to deal with a drug addiction. But that wouldn't happen in your perfect lives. Just remember Johnny Lewis has a family too. Yea it's a sad situation and shouldn't of happened but neither should any of his other recent troubles with the law. This all came about because of the drug use. Too bad nobody stepped up and helped the dude out before it got to this point. My heart goes out to all the people hurt by this tragic event. RIP Johnny, may you rest in peace and be free from your troubles.

So disgusting and sad. Should be fairly easy to close the case, you can't beat someone to death and rip apart a cat with your bare hands and walk away without marks and/or blood evidence all over you.
