An investigation ensued and investigators obtained a warrant to search Starling’s home.
STPSO says that a search of the “Victoria Way residence resulted in the discovery of numerous images and videos of animals being sexually abused.”
Deputies then interviewed Starling about what had been uncovered during the investigation.
According to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, “Starling admitted to engaging in sexual intercourse with two of his dogs.”
Starling is currently in the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
The animals who were at Starling’s home are now with St. Tammany Parish Animal Control.
