After being released on bail and indicted for felony animal cruelty, Curry disappeared. When authorities caught up with him at a Memphis area motel in March 2014, he was arrested. A petition garnered more than 24,000 signatures asking that Curry be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

The maximum punishment for a Class E felony is punishable with a fine up to $3,000 and/or imprisonment up to 6 years.

Rest in peace Daisy.
