Connecticut police solve decapitated chicken mystery

WESTPORT, Conn. >> Police have captured a man they say has been leaving decapitated chickens outside a Connecticut home.

Westport police say a resident called at about 11:30 p.m. Friday to say someone had just dropped a bag containing two headless chickens and a headless pigeon on his property, then ran toward a nearby railroad station.

Based on surveillance video, police found 48-year-old New York City resident Ajamu Obataiye at the station and charged him with breach of peace, animal cruelty and illegal dumping.

Police say decapitated chickens have been left at the home on apparently random occasions over the past year. There’s no known connection between Obataiye and the homeowner.

He was released on $7,500 bond. The case wasn’t listed in online court records and it’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
