As dog lovers, we like to think of other dog people as good people. That may or may not be true. What is true is that dog abusers have been shown to display criminal behavior in other areas. So it seems with the Polish immigrant accused of animal cruelty in the case of Puppy Doe.
The 32-year-old Radoslaw Czerkawski is being held without bail and is scheduled to appear in the Norfolk Superior Court on February 11, 2014.
According to the Boston Globe, on Thursday, the assistant district attorney Tracey Cusick told the court that there is a separate investigation into Czerkawski's financial dealings with the diseased Janina Stock. Czerkawski was hired to take care of the woman because he spoke Polish.
Oddly enough, on the very same day (August 31, 2013) as Puppy Doe was found in Quincy, Stock was found dead in her home. Czerkawski had joint accounts with the woman whom e, according to Cusid presented as his grandmother. He allegedly took more than $100,000 in savings bonds that belonged to the woman.
Czerkawskiy is also alleged to have stolen from a church.
Puppy Doe had been starved down to a mere 18 pounds. She had been stabbed repeatedly in the eye. Her tongue had been spliced. She had been beaten with a heavy object. She was also burned over her body. The beatings broke the bones in her legs. She could not walk. Her limbs were pulled from the joint sockets causing the blood to pool in those empty sockets.
Puppy Doe was tortured for months and lived in incredible pain before she was dumped in a park in the city of Quincy. She was found on August 31 and euthanized.
