HOUSTON – Friends and family of a young mother who was murdered last month are asking for the public’s help in finding her pet kitten.
Michelle Warner’s body was found in Odessa Sunday after estranged boyfriend Mark Castellano allegedly told police where he’d dumped her.
Warner, 31, had been missing since Saturday, September 22.
Castellano initially told police she left their home after an argument so he took their 3-year-old son Cayden to Odessa the following day.
Detectives say he broke down and confessed to killing her on Sunday.
Their son wasn’t harmed and he is now staying with relatives in Houston.
Friends say a kitten that Warner adopted for her children is still missing. Castellano claims he put the kitten outside when he left the house in the 7200 block of Bellerive in southwest Houston.
Friends are hoping to find the kitten to help comfort the children as they mourn their mother’s loss.
The kitten is black and white with blue eyes. If you know anything about the kitten’s whereabouts, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
