I was never a cat lover, either.
When police asked Weinman what tools would be needed to commit the cat killings, he responded, "I don't know, but I'm sure they are very well hidden," the documents state. When asked how the cats could have been captured, he responded, "They have to be either tranquilized or poisoned."
But Weinman's lawyer said none of the evidence directly connects his client to the crimes.
"It's really important to note that there's not one single witness in there that says Tyler Weinman touched a cat," said the attorney, David Macey.
Prosecutor Elijah Levitt said the affidavit "speaks for itself."
In one interview with police, the teenager reportedly became excited when he described a "tearing sound" when skin is ripped from a cat's body during dissections, according to the documents. But a high school teacher told investigators that no such noise occurs when cats that are dissected in a classroom setting because of the way the bodies are prepared.
After consulting with staff doctors in the Miami-Dade Police Department's psychological services section, detectives concluded that Weinman fit the profile of a sociopath.
Macey called it "junk science," and said it will be proven false.
