From ANIMAL PEOPLE, July/August 1995:
WINTON, N.C.––The scheduled
first court appearance of PETA staffers Adria
Joy Hinkle and Andrew Benjamin Cook on
multiple cruelty charges was on July 19, 2005
postponed until August 16.
Hinkle, 27, and Cook, 24, are
charged with a combined 62 counts of felony
cruelty to animals and 16 counts of illegal dis-
posal of animal remains.
Police sources have indicated that
other persons associated with PETA may be
charged as result of ongoing investigation.
The court date was delayed, report-
ed Darren Freeman of the Norfolk Virginian–
Pilot, because the prosecution was “waiting
for lab results on chemicals found in a van the
two suspects were using when they were
arrested, and the results to determine the
cause of death of one of the animals.”
Ahoskie, North Carolina police
detective Jeremy Roberts told Freeman that the
van was registered to PETA.
