- Florida, USA -
The Pembroke Pines Police Department announced the arrest of 25-years-old COREY VAUGHN DACRES (pictured).
On the evening of Sunday, July 9, 2023, DACRES got involved in a domestic dispute with his family members at their apartment at the Advenir at San Tropez apartment complex near Northwest 78th Terrace and Northwest 1st Street.
At one point DACRES left the apartment with the family dog, a white female 6-year-old Pitbull terrier named Unity.
DACRES walked to the complex community swimming pool and threw Unity over the locked 5-foot fence surrounding the pool area. He then jumped the fence and got into the pool “where he willfully and maliciously drowned the dog”, said police.
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by Voice For Us, DACRES returned to the apartment after murdering Unity and told his mother: “I killed the dog.”
Police were called and responding officers found Unity at the bottom of the swimming pool “in three feet of water”, stated the report.
Unity’s body was extracted from the pool and pronounced dead.
After an investigation determined that DACRES “intentionally drowned his family’s dog”, he was placed under arrest.
“Further investigation revealed that the pool was not open to the public and had been locked up and closed since the Covid19 pandemic”, stated the report.
Officers examined and photographed DACRES’ leg and did not find any injuries and/or marks consistent with a dog bite. The affidavit does not elaborate as to whether DACRES claimed that he was bitten by Unity.
The murderer was transported to the Broward County Jail on one third-degree felony count of aggravated animal cruelty.
On Monday, July 10, 2023, DACRES appeared in court and was ordered held on $35,000 bond and told by a judge he must undergo a mental health evaluation.
Police said this case remains an active criminal investigation, and any additional
information will be released upon availability.
Had Unity been a human, this scum would be facing murder charges, but clearly, to lawmakers, not all lives matter the same way!
