Tuesday, Jan 8, 2008County: Jasper
Disposition: Not Charged
Person of Interest: Terri Bellmear
A Jasper County woman feels that an investigation into the animals on her property is unjustified. Terri Bellmear lives on Burr Oak Road, and she feels that the investigation into the neglect of her animals is because of a vendetta with her neighbors. Earlier this week, the Jasper County Sheriff's Office turned over reports of an investigation against Bellmear to the County Prosecutor. Bellmear says she feeds all of her animals everyday, and she feels that they're properly cared for. The County Prosecutor will now decide whether there is enough evidence to file charges of animal neglect against Bellmear.
