Investigation into teen’s Snapchat video of dog in Texas being lit on fire

The Hewitt Police Department have confirmed they are investigating a disturbing video posted on social media showing a dead  dog being lit on fire, reports KcenTv.

The video originally appeared on Snapchat and the account is reported to belong to a Midway High School graduate who previously played football. It is unknown if the teen had a role in the dog’s death or if  the dog had already been dead when its body was set on fire.

On Facebook, Serena Teakell, a bartender at a local Wako bar, recorded the original Snapchat video, and on Friday night shared the disturbing footage on Facebook. Within a few hours it had garnered 229,000 views and nearly 5,000 shares. Serena commented and asked everyone to share:

“DEAR FRIENDS AND ANIMAL LOVERS, I’d like to introduce you to a boy from the Waco area, Zachary Molina and show you all what he and his friends think is cool to do to a dog’s body. I have no idea how the dog died or who this kid is, but since he found it so funny and cool to post it on his snapchat, I figured he wouldn’t mind if I shared it with facebook. Zach, I hope you’re embarrassed of yourself and thanks for accepting my friend request so I could tag you.

*I MUST WARN YOU, THIS VIDEO IS GRAPHIC*

PLEASE SHARE THIS AND LET EVERYONE KNOW HOW “awesome” ZACHARY MOLINA IS.”

 

Police have been investigating since early Friday evening and posted the following statement on Facebook trying to assure the public this situation was not being ignored:

” I want to ensure the public that we are working on this and gathering all the pertinent details at this time. When we have further information, I will let everyone know,” posted Hewitt Police Chief Jim Devlin.

The dog’s owner has since come forward and stated on Facebook his dog had recently disappeared after breaking free of his collar to chase a rabbit in the park.

Warning: The video is extremely graphic and disturbing. The content may not be suitable for all viewing audiences. (Photo via screenshot of video)

    I’m a bartender. Thank you for blasting this piece of sh*t. I hear his father is an animal activist and lover. I hope he rots in hell. They don’t even deserve life on this Earth. I think you should start a group page for this kind of abuse, for bartenders, servers, waitresses and anyone in the hospitality business. This just sickens me. My pets have better health insurance that I do. Unbelievable.

    Found Him. I’m not sure how much more I can help, but this is his facebook page. After seeing him, I was determined to find him but I live in CO and I’m not sure how much more I can help. He lives in Waco, TX and goes to Midway High School. This is his Facebook page;

    This act is deplorable. Maybe a group of people should find out where he lives and protest in front of his home. Everyone needs to take a stand to stop his kind of humor.

    I don’t have a violent bone in my body but when I see animal abuse/killings/torture I could literally tear these people apart. My guess is they killed the dog and only decided to videotape it after. I made the mistake of viewing this video and it was one of the most upsetting things I have ever seen. This sick boy/man is a serial killer in the making. Anyone who can do something like this to a dog, much less any living creature, is truly disturbed. He needs to be severely punished and needs mental intervention and any others who may be involved. These parents should be proud that they’ve given birth to a demented psychopath.

    This is being turned over to the DA in Waco. Please join me in putting the pressure on them to prosecute this thug and his buddies. Ask where the gun came from. Was it his cop dad’s gun. He is only 18 how did he have a gun in his possession? If on private property how did the gun get there?? All the boys were under 21.
