Johnny Lewis

CAT

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.

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.

Cats are nearly as useless as sewer rats. One less is no big deal. Sad about the old lady and half sack dying though.

So sick. So sick. Thank you to Harvey and TMZ for breaking this story. and keeping us informed about the complete depravity in Los Angeles/Hollywood. and in the cult of personality. I am an LA native, lived right on the thirty mile zone (Beverly and La Cienega) and glad I got out of Dodge out a few years back.

What a sick f*** that guy was. I'm glad he's dead and hope he suffered before he died. I say they just dump his body into a porta-potty tank and let people sh!t on him.

It would not surprise me if he were high as hell when he did this. Do you understand how much strength it takes to tear an animal apart AND murder a woman with your bare hands. This dude was gone. My heart goes out to this woman's family. I am very sorry about the cat as well.

This guy first chose to take whatever substance and path he was on; the addiction came later when he chose to continue. And yes--- addiction is a horrible thing, but this innocent lady and her cat did not choose to die, especially like this. The fact that some of you people think this is amusing in some way is really scary and sad. What does that say about you?

Another news source said he was on a designer drug called Smiles. What the hell is up with "designer" drugs, Bath salts = Miami Zombie attack, Smiles had this guy killing the landlady and cat, then going after the neighbors. If it is the drugs then it has wasted in terms of life and happiness.

What a waste of a life! That poor woman. Maybe he should have been locked up when he committed those other "violent crimes" this year?

What a POS! I can only pray that he does rot in hell for eternity. And anybody who offers him condolences should remind themselves the horror that old woman went through as well as the horror that innocent cat endured.

Wow...does this really need its own article? That's just depressing, and it's dragging out all the internet execution experts who feel their own sick and twisted snuff fantasies are justified in response to this.

Snake Oil Cult    


He was a Scientologist and was pictured in their Narconon promotional pictures. However, as soon as it was revealed that he had murdered a cat and an elderly lady, the cult removed all evidence of his membership from their websites.

What's wrong scientology? You promise a happy successful life......didn't quite turn out that way, did it.
