Police in suburban Chicago were investigating a 64-year old man for indecent solicitation of a child when the man's pet peacock died. Details surrounding the case of the dead peacock, named 'Phyl' were unclear (thankfully!) but David Beckman is being charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty as police say he sexually abused the bird.

He faces multiple charges in the case against him involving the child.

Here's all the details from 5NBC in Chicago.
