This is in regards to Otto, the dog who was murdered in his backyard in July. Otto was raised by my daughter from 9 weeks old. He lived to play with tennis balls and Frisbees and for attention.
Otto lived in a fenced-in half-acre yard. He was happy and safe, or so we thought. He had nowhere to go to get away from strangers who had invaded his home.
My daughter called me screaming on July 8 that Otto was dead. He lay lifeless. His head was turned toward his home, his eyes staring toward the back door. Perhaps he was watching, hoping his Mommy would come rescue him. It was not meant to be. The trespassers did what they did, slipped out the gate and left Otto to die alone. They had covered his back and hips with oil. As I knelt down beside him, I found his back wet. I thought he had been shot, but when I raised my hand it was not blood, but black oil that had saturated his skin.
The horrible, perverted person that did this needs to be turned in. If you know who turned Otto’s last moments of life into a terrifying nightmare, please come forward. If you are a parent, a friend or a peer, please help this sick person by turning them in. They need to be stopped. They will do it again. Some other animal or even a child could be in the same position as Otto: helpless and in agony.
I would like to thank Bob Poynter and the anonymous donations toward a reward that is now at $5,000 for information leading to an arrest of whomever killed Otto.
Please contact Detective Chris Couch with CPD at 812-376-2628.
