Much of the animal bones and carcasses were found in a shed behind the house that was built by the renters as a place to have ritual animal killings, said George Bengal, director of Law Enforcement for the Pennsylvania SPCA. “It appears to be so, that they built this as a worship area in the back,” said Bengal.

Though officials aren’t releasing the names of the suspects involved yet, Bengal said that a man and his live-in female partner, along with another man, are among the people they are looking for in the animal killings.
