MSgt. Wardlow says the first dog was found on January 19, 2023, although it is unknown when the dog was actually drowned. Investigators say the dogs were found tied up and weighed down with items like cinder block or bricks.
“What they tell us is that these dogs have been tied up to either cinder block or a brick, something heavy, to weight the dogs down obviously so they can throw them in there and die.” said MSgt. Wardlow.
Officials say there are currently no leads to who might be doing this and investigators are asking those who live in that area if they may have seen anything suspicious.
