- Minnesota, USA -
On April 20, in Dakota County District Court, 46-year-old BARBARA ANN CROSBY was charged for fatally stabbing her fiancé’s dog.
FOX9 reports that according to the charges, Lakeville Police found a deceased Labrador retriever on March 27, near a walking trail in Lakeville.
The furbaby was on a leash tied to a tree.
A necropsy performed on the victim by veterinarians at the University of Minnesota revealed the death was caused by the multiple stab wounds to the neck.
Examiners also found an injection point, around which there was a white substance that turned out to be a mix of tramadol and diazepam.
Police learned that the furbaby was healthy for his age, that he had not recently had any procedures and would not have been expected to receive such medication.
Police also learned that CROSBY had a prescription for tramadol.
From an investigation it emerged that prior to the dog’s death, CROSBY was with the furbaby.
CBS Minnesota reports that CROSBY left a note for her fiancé, saying that she was taking the dog for a walk that morning.
When Police questioned CROSBY, officers observed scratches on her body consistent with dog scratches.
Near where the dog was discovered, officers also found multiple items of CROSBY’s clothing.
Several sources revealed to investigators it was common knowledge that CROSBY did not like the dog.
According to the charges, after the furbaby died, CROSBY told her fiancé's relative that she had “previously wished the dog would die in his sleep or disappear and take the burden off she and her fiancé.”
Instead of facing murder charges, the filthy murderer is facing one felony count of mistreatment of animals.
That’s the problem right there!!!
The dog was MURDERED, NOT MISTREATED!!!
The felony carries a maximum sentence of two years behind bars and $5,000 fine.
The filthy murderer is scheduled to appear in court May 11.
