A Fort Mohave man faces felony animal cruelty charges after he was arrested on Monday for stabbing and killing his dog. According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office press release, Thomas Olroyd told authorities that demons told him to repeatedly stab his dog.
Approximately 5:00 p.m., deputies from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona, responded to a welfare check at a residence after a friend reported she had been concerned about Olroyd’ suicide threats. When deputies arrived, they found the dead dog in the yard. Olroyd, 47, told deputies there were “demons on his roof” and later stated “he didn’t want to, but he killed his dog by stabbing him.”
Fort Mohave Fire Department personnel responded and transported Olroyd to Valley View Medical Center.
Rest in peace sweet dog.
