SAN ANTONIO (TCD) — A 35-year-old man was arrested on murder and other charges for allegedly killing and decapitating a 65-year-old man and his dog, then admitting to the crime.
According to an affidavit cited by KSAT-TV, on Friday, Oct. 15, San Antonio Police Department officers responded to the 500 block of Demya Drive due to a report of a suspicious man peering inside parked cars on the street. Police spoke with the man, Bradley Dimmick, and he allegedly said, “I just killed somebody.”
He reportedly said the killing occurred at a residence on the 2100 block of San Lucas Street, so police drove there to look into the claims. When they arrived, police reportedly opened the door and found blood on the floor.
KENS-TV, which also cites the affidavit, reports officers located a deceased dog close to the front door, then a headless body in the living room. As police made their way through the home, they discovered the victim’s head inside a bathtub.
Medics arrived and declared the victim, Keith Dimmick, deceased in the early morning hours of Oct. 14.
Detectives arrived at the home and reportedly “observed a large stomach wound on Keith Dimmick’s body and a large stomach wound on the deceased dog.”
The affidavit says both Keith Dimmick and the dog’s “wounds had intestines extruding from their bodies.”
Keith Dimmick reportedly had not answered a phone call since around 9:20 a.m. the morning on Oct. 13.
According to KENS, investigators did not note in the affidavit whether Keith and Bradley Dimmick are related, though Keith Gimmick’s body was found at Bradley Gimmick’s residence.
Bexar County court records show Bradley Dimmick is being charged with murder and cruelty or torture to a non-livestock animal. His bond is set at $1.5 million.
