poison of dog

I had a white shepherd dog that was poisoned.  The culprit has been living on the small holding with us and has been mentally and verbally abused his family for years.  He has also been cruel to animals.  We suspected that he is mentally ill and maybe also psychopathic.  He planned and killed this dog.  He was seen giving her something to eat a few days earlier and was also seen the day of her death with her.  She was poisoned with a leathel dose of phosphine.  Her vomitus was sent to Onderstepoort for testing as well as her body for autopsy.  The report from Onderstepoort has come back and the autopsy report will be available this coming week.  The person mentioned here, got the poison from his father on their farm and he was the only person dealing with it. It was given to her with meat and as she only ate bread and milk in the morning - she was already not feeling well - it was definitely given to her.  We fear that he might have also 3 years ago poisoned one of our horses. A restraining order has been obtained and he has also been told to leave the property.  Obviously now he is trying to get his family to return, but they fled from his mental and verbal manupulation.  His weapons were conviscated after he terrorised us one weekend.  He also hit his 2 year old son with a belt and tried to threaten us when we came inbetween. All this has been reported to the Somerset West SAPS and I would like to prevent him from harming any more animals.  He has killed squirrels before and dragging the around with a rope in full view of small children.  He regularly shoots birds and has also shot a cat here on the property.Please can you help us with this.  His wife is in fear of her life and that he will try and abduct their children as he has threatened before.  He charms people and plans everything specifically.  This dog has been treated by the Stellenbosch animal clinic and I emailed and reported it also the the cape town spca. I can forward the toxicology report and the autopsy result if needed, but it is also at the animal hospital.
Many thanmks
