Quincy, Ma.-- After more than a month of investigating and chasing possible leads, Quincy police have confirmed that Radoslaw Czerkawski, 32, was taken into custody in New Britain, Connecticut, in connection with the death of Puppy Doe.
Quincy police chief, Paul Keenan, confirmed tonight that Czerkawski was picked up by New Britain police last Wednesday and held on charges of misleading a police investigation. He will appear in Quincy District Court tomorrow morning to face charges of misleading an investigation and 11 counts of animal cruelty, a felony charge that holds a 5 year prison sentence.
Czerkawski, originally from Poland, was working as a home healthcare aide in Quincy at the time Puppy Doe was discovered.
Officer Keenan feels confident in the arrest, stating, "we wanted to make sure we got it 100% right." A number of search warrants had been issued, and hundreds of tips were received in the case of Puppy Doe.
