PostSubject: Girl finds missing dog's head   Wed Mar 21, 2007 4:04 pm

This is so ... I just can't find the words for it... No

CNN Article


ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) -- A 17-year-old girl who spent weeks looking for her missing dog unwrapped a box left at her house and found the pet's severed head inside, authorities said.
Homicide investigators were looking into the case because of the "implied" terroristic threat, St. Paul Police Sgt. Jim Gray said. The Humane Society of the United States said Wednesday it was offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
"This was extraordinarily heinous," said Dale Bartlett, the Humane Society's deputy manager for animal cruelty issues. "I deal with hundreds and hundreds of cruelty cases each year. When I read about this case, it took my breath away. It's horrible."
After Crystal Brown's 4-year-old Australian shepherd mix, Chevy, wandered away last month, she put up "missing" posters in her neighborhood and went door to door looking for him. She called the St. Paul animal shelter and rode the bus there several times.
"I felt empty," Crystal told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. "I couldn't talk to anyone. He was my dog. It was just me and him. ... I told him everything and he never shared any of my secrets."
Two weeks ago, a gift-wrapped box was left at the house Crystal shares with her grandmother. The box had batteries on top, and a note that said "Congratulations Crystal. This side up. Batteries included."
Crystal opened the box and found her dog's head inside. The box also contained Valentine's Day candy.
Crystal screamed when she saw her dog's face.
"She was just hysterical," said Crystal's grandmother, Shirley Brown. "She was screaming. She said, 'Grandma, it's my dog's head!'
"I said, 'no it can't be!"'
Authorities say the case is an isolated incident and the suspect likely knew the family. A motive is unclear.
"This was so cruel," Crystal said. "This is one sick, twisted person."
She now has a new puppy, another Australian shepherd. She's named it Diesel. "Hopefully, he'll be my best friend," Crystal said.

I read this story on the Associated Press wire several days ago. It's just wrong! The story I read didn't talk about her getting a puppy, so I'm glad for that.
But it's hard to replace a beloved pet.

Just want to update you all. There was an arrest made in this case. Turns out it was a 24-year-old guy who had once dated the dog's owner. He was jealous that the girl started dating somone else.

this happened in my neck of the woods
In St. Clair Twp, Bulter County a dogs body was found. The results of a autopsy showed that the dog had been boiled in oil or water and skinned except for the fur on its paws. There were cuts on the legs plus around the neck. Wrapped around one of the rear legs was a wire that may have been used to string the dog up. This is one of the horrific cases of animal abuse I've heard of in a long long time.

That is just disgusting. I don't know how anyone could be so heartless and cruel. It makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it.

I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, so this story has been on the news alot. I don't know if it's been confirmed, but I think that the guy that did this was the girl's ex-boyfriend, and that she may have been involved. She may have been doing this for attention. As sick as it sounds, it wouldn't surprise me. A couple of years ago, a college-aged girl from Wisconsin faked her own kidnapping, trying to get attention.
The dog story really angered me! Words cannot even express...............

Oh my gosh - that's even more sickening than the original story! If she was involved, I hope she's appropriately reprimanded. And you're right, I do remember that college girl faking her own kidnapping - terrible! How heartless can someone be?
