A sick teenager who filmed himself killing two kittens by placing them inside an airtight bag and using a vacuum cleaner to suck out the air was being hunted by internet users across the world today. In horrifying footage posted online, the young thug is seen gently stroking the tiny tabby cats before placing them in the bag. As J More..ohn Lennon's Merry Christmas (War Is Over) plays in the background, he calmly seals the bag and attaches a vacuum cleaner hose. In distressing scenes, too graphic to be posted on MailOnline, the cleaner is then switched on and the air is slowly sucked out of the bag. The mewing kittens can be seen wriggling around and clawing to escape as the polythene tightens around them. After switching off the cleaner, the sick teen opens the bag and proudly holds up the body of one of the kittens for his camera, before displaying them on his bed. The horrifying footage has prompted outrage across the internet, with hundreds of amateur sleuths attempting to identify the cat killer.

Man why do people do this crap and WHY do people feed it by posting it?!?!
I would just assume to not be made aware of stuff like this. I already know there are some soulless sick people amongst us, and I try to focus on something positive to come from sharing these sicko's ordeals, like maybe awareness will curtail future incidents, but that's not how it works with this stuff, imo.
I know I should not try and be an ats censurer, but I don't think people should post this type of garbage because it only pisses people off and takes humanity back a step or two. No offense intended to the OP, but people should consider before bringing this onboard. What is to be gained? " Oh yea, that's f'd up man, wtf, wow, can u believe?"
Then what? I know I know, if I don't like it I don't have to click on it, but when scanning the boards, we will all be made aware of it...again.
Thanks for the holiday cheer...

Very sorry to post such a topic at this time of year everyone.
This guy needs serious help, obviously.
So an appeal to TAS folks to tap your networks for people who can help trace this criminal electronically.
My understanding is that he has posted several videos and stills, and may be continuing to do so.
Watch the Facebook Group at
Items already noted, but more to find perhaps -
A couple of good profile face images
The lock on the door
Possible fire sprinkler above that door (an apartment?)
Vacuum appliance type
Look for any power outlets on the walls hinting at the host country
The room is very sparse and tidy - rented hotel room or apartment?
Furniture type - country? Hotel chain?
TV sound in the background towards the end? Audio processing work needed here.
I have seen the full video, and do not see any signs of a hoax.
Yes there are edits, but the 'kill' scene lingers without edit
I would regard myself as a near-expert film nitpicker (over 100+ on IMDB) so am treating the video as real for the moment.
Detach emotion if you can, it helps.

Soon he might beg for mercy.
But we do not forgive
