A family in Minnesota is trying to make sense of a horrible situation which claimed the life of their dog. According to Fox 9 News, someone dognapped a yellow Labrador retriever named Lou back in late December – shortly thereafter, his owners began receiving threatening phone calls from a man going by the name of Kevin. The caller demanded a ransom for the safe return of the family’s pet.
Desperate, Jason Davis and his wife paid the caller’s ransom fee of $1200, but Lou was never returned. Last week, the mystery of Lou’s whereabouts was solved…in a terrible way. An ice fisherman near Buffalo found the frozen body of Lou on an island – someone had shot the dog twice.
According to Davis, there are leads on the man who extorted the money from them – but it is unclear right now if that person is the same individual who shot Lou and dumped his body. Anyone with information on this terrible case is asked to contact the Wright County Sheriff’s Office at (763)682-7622 and U.S. Fugitive Apprehension Tipline at (612)808-6656.
