- California, USA -
San Diego Police and the San Diego Humane Society are actively investigating after a puppy who had been kidnapped was later found dead.
The victim was a Chihuahua mix named Chapulin.
His mom, Ms. Jessica Price, told Fox 5 that Chapulin went missing the morning of November 6.
A couple days later, Ms. Price started getting text messages from an unknown number claiming they knew where her dog was.
The people who were sending the messages claimed that they were going to steal the dog from the people who had him, BUT, they wanted a reward for returning him to Ms. Price.
That reward was initially a million dollars.
Ms. Price told them she did not have that kind of money, so the reward went down to $100,000.
Finally, after agreeing on $2,000, Ms. Price was convinced she was going to have her furbaby back.
On Wednesday, November 18, Ms. Price received another message.
She was instructed to go to an address near Skyline Park in southeast San Diego and to look by the restrooms.
Sadly, Ms. Price found Chapulin lifeless in a cage.
She told Fox 5: “He was dead. He was lying down and it was such a small cage, and I just hope he wasn’t in there for a long time. I don’t wish this on anyone. I’m still processing it and it’s scary to think someone would be capable of killing such a small, little, sweet dog like Chapulin.”
An emotional Ms. Price is now sending out an appeal to the public: “I’m just hoping that maybe somebody has a camera on their house that faces the street that could possibly share some footage, somebody walking with that pet carrier or a car that came to the park.”
I obviously join Ms. Price’s appeal and ask you all to come forward and speak up if you have information related to this story.
Please do not protect evil.
