Faith Ross and Frencesca Maselli Created An Animal House Of Hell - Filled With More Than Two Dozen Rotting Corpses

Long Island, New York (The Weekly Vice) - Mother and daughter duo Faith Ross, 54, and Francesca Maselli, 23, were jailed Saturday after investigators found a house of hell inside their residence filled with trash and the carcasses of 26 animals - several of them believed to have been tortured to death.

According to Rockville Center, investigators were dispatched to the women's home after receiving a complaint about an odor emanating from it. When officers arrived at the residence, a nightmare of trash, debris, animal corpses, feces, urine and 15 malnourished animals were found inside.

Investigators say the trash inside the residence was at least two feet deep, rendering the floor completely blanketed. Layered in among the trash was the rotting corpses of more than two-dozen animals.

Inside, police found 15 trembling and malnourished dogs and cats - whose mouths were muzzled and wrapped with tape so that they couldn't breath or bark. Many of the animals were locked inside small cages, wallowing in feces that was several inches deep.

Among the living, investigators found six Chihuahuas, three dachshunds, a Yorkshire terrier, a bulldog, a Shih Tzu, a boxer and two cats. The animals were removed from the home and immediately moved to an animal shelter for medical care.

Among the dead, investigators found the corpses of cats, ferrets, parrots and dogs. Judge Anna Anzalone teared up when prosecutors showed her a photograph of a dog's skull that was still wrapped with tape.

Ross and Maselli were booked into the Nassau County Jail on three felony counts of animal cruelty. Bail was set at $75,000 each.

The animals are not available for adoption because Ross and Maselli have refused to forfeit ownership. A civil court hearing on the matter will commence within the next ten days.
