The pig disappeared sometime last Friday after school, but it wasn't until Thursday that the investigation led police to a suspect. He was questioned by police and ended up admitting to the crime. The female red Duroc belonged to a high school student who was preparing the pig for competition. Teachers said senior Weldon Kemp spent more than 100 hours preparing his pig for competitions. The events could've helped him earn as much as $12,000 for college. "He had a good shot at winning and being successful at it, to raise a little bit of money for his scholarship for college," Frances Nelson, an agricultural science teacher, said. Police said last Friday, the 22-year-old suspect told them he went inside the barn, stole the pig, took it to a remote area, slaughtered it and then ate the animal. "I understand that he indicated to the detective that his motivation was that he was hungry," CCPD Lt. James Garrett said. Police said a text message sent by the suspect and a tip from a witness led to them to the suspect. Police said those tips helped them to crack this case quickly. "If it hadn't been for the people stepping up and saying, 'Hey, look, this is what I heard' or 'I got a text message from somebody that somebody did it', we'd still be wondering who did it," Garrett said. School officials are pretty shook up over the case. They're meeting Friday morning to come up with a specific security plan to make sure the animals and students are protected in the future. "Right now, we will have a fence that surrounds the perimeter and students will have a combination to get in. We'll also have a minimum of 12 cameras which will be recorded," Nelson said.
