Lion-o from Florida police have made an arrest in a grisly murder case that took the life of a writer of the cult cartoon classic 'Thundercats.'

Zephyrhills police arrested James "Jimmy" Davis and charged him with first degree murder in connection with the death of comic book writer Stephen J. Perry.

Davis and his wife shared a home with Perry as "roommates." Perry was reported missing last May under what police called "suspicious circumstances." The Davises also went missing at the same time as of Perry's disappearance.

Perry's body was found three days later severed into pieces in several different locations. Police have not established a firm motive for his murder, but a Zephyrhills police captain noted that "drugs as well as monetary remunerations" may be involved.

Perry wrote several episodes of the popular kids' cartoon in 1985. He also contributed scripts to four episodes of the short-lived sci-fi kids cartoon 'Silverhawks' the following year and several Marvel comics titles.
