Todd Hammond, a notorious serial killer who has been preying on women in the suburbs of Minneapolis, was finally caught yesterday by police officer Dennis Abernathy. Abernathy, however, let Hammond go with a warning.
“I’ll let it slide this time,” Abernathy reportedly said. “But don’t let me catch you doing this again or you will be in serious trouble.”
Todd Hammond was known as “The Butterfly Man” by authorities for always leaving butterfly wings near his victims. Hammond had been eluding Minnesota state detectives for months before the FBI was called in to lead the investigation in October. The game of cat-and-mouse that ensued was interrupted this morning when Officer Abernathy pulled Hammond over for a faulty brake light and discovered dismembered body parts in his trunk and a jar of butterfly wings in his rear seat.
Hammond pleaded with Abernathy for half a minute before the officer decided to let the killer go. Abernathy was later questioned by the federal agents leading the investigation.
“Bringing in a serial killer, there’s a lot of paperwork to fill out,” Abernathy said during his questioning. “Usually we don’t step up our game on this sort of thing until the end of the month anyway, that’s when we’re worried about making our quota on psychopath arrests.”
Abernathy says he isn’t sure where Hammond was heading, though it’s in Hammond’s MO to leave his victims dismembered and in a public area. If anyone in the Twin Cities region spots anything suspicious, report it at the end of the month.
