Lawrence police are looking for those responsible for killing eight cats over the past two weeks, possibly by fracturing their skulls. All of the dead cats have been found in the northern part of Lawrence, near Greenwood and Lowell streets, said Police Chief John J. Romero. There were no visible marks, mutilation, or blood on any of the animals. Police got a call Wednesday about the eighth dead cat and ordered a necropsy of the animal to determine the cause of death, Romero said.
