Mean and heartless woman accused of killing son’s Yorkie in tumble dryer

In southern Austria, authorities are investigating the murder of a teenager’s beloved Yorkshire terrier allegedly tossed into a tumble dryer and roasted alive by his mother. According to the Journal,  Silvia Schmidt, 49, originally claimed the dog named Gizmo had been left dead in a plant pot next to her front door when she returned home late last week. In addition, she stated she found a note attached to the still warm corpse of her 15-year-old son’s beloved dog:

“Still warm and tumble dry!”

After a thorough investigation however, police stated Schmidt admitted to have accidentally killing the dog. In a report from the Express, she stated she had not noticed the dog sleeping in the laundry basket of wet blankets when she dumped everything into the dryer. She then set the heartbreaking display of Gizmo’s dead body on the front porch to blame her neighbors; all of whom she had arguing.

“She wanted to blame her neighbor in order not to have to confess to her son what had really happened,” police said in a statement, adding that she now faces charges.

She now faces lying to the police and animal cruelty. It is still not known if the dog’s death was an intentional act or an accident.

Rest in peace Gizmo. You must have suffered so much and had to have been so frightened. We are sorry a human let you down.

    I am finding it very hard to believe she could empty a load of wet blankets and NOT notice a dog in it! This POS is just plain mean trying to hide her despicable act and blaming it on the neighbors. I pray for her son, his mother is a lying POS and I would NEVER trust her again. Rest in peace poor little Gizmo.

      I agree! How can you not notice a dog in a basket full of laundry. I find it difficult that a dog would sleep in wet blankets. Yup she’s a lying POS!!!!!

    How could she fail to see him on top of the clothes? Also, maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never had a dog crawl into a clothes basket, although my cats have. Admittedly, most of the time the basket is out of reach, but I think that’s true of most people. Clothes baskets would tend to be a tall step for a 15 year old Yorkie, especially if the dog has an actual dog bed. Again, maybe it’s me. The story just smells.

      It’s not just you Maxiemom. That’s usually a behavior of cats.My cats will curl into a basket of clothes freshly out from the dryer not wet blankets!

    Why would the dog be lying on wet towels? It is not normal for an animal too lie on wet things. She would have had to see the dog on the towels when she put them in the dryer. She apparently did it on purpose for some reason.

    I don’t believe ONE WORD of this female maggot’s story – Gizmo deserved MUCH better than to be treated like a hunk of trash – Silvia Schmidt needs a quick trip thru the wood chipper – I’d love to stick this bitch in it.

    Oh,,, come on…. if you believe it was an accident then, your just as stupid as she is period… if this was an accident then, why wouldn’t she just tell her son how sorry she was but, didn’t know he was in there and,,show him how sorry she was rather then telling him that the neighbor did it and, make him feel he had to get revenge… NO , THIS BITCH DID IT… and, cant own up to what she did… well, atleast now her son knows what a piece of shit his mom is… among other bad names. And, he’ll probably hate her for years to come and, never forgive her. Which, i couldnt either

    With a parent like this POS, who needs enemies??? If I were this teenager, I would leave home as anywhere else is preferable to living with such an evil POS…….

    Poor precious little treasure Gizmo, so sorry that someone you loved and trusted was so cruel to you…… you must have been so terrified in that dryer…… I am absolutely heartbroken over how much you must have suffered…….

    This POS is best described as “Pure Evil”……. I think this POS is absolutely disgusting and headed to a reserved spot in Hell where she will burn forever for her cruelty…..

    Precious little treasure Gizmo, your life mattered and you certainly did NOT deserve to be murdered……. I truly hope that you get justice for your murder. I know you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and he will welcome you to his wonderful snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst loving friends……..
