KYLE JAMES VINCENT, former Fairmount Police officer, charged with the death of his K9 Officer Zeus

- Indiana, USA -


On June 6, 2024, one misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty was filed against former Fairmount Police officer 36-yar-old KYLE JAMES VINCENT.


The Grant County Prosecutor's Office charged VINCENT following an incident that happened on Sunday, September 10, 2023, when VINCENT’s K9 Officer Zeus died in the back of VINCENT’s patrol car.

Zeus lost his precious life after being left in the vehicle for around twelve (12) hours following his overnight shift.


Zeus was taken to the Comfort Veterinary Hospital in Marion for a necropsy.


On September 11, 2023, Indiana State Police launched an investigation and the following day, VINCENT resigned.


According to court documents, that Sunday morning VINCENT returned home with K9 Officer Zeus at around 6:00 a.m. and discovered him lifeless at around 6:00 p.m. as he was getting ready for his next shift.


As per court documents, VINCENT called Fairmount Police Chief Richard Dollar after 7:00 p.m. to advise him of what happened.


Chief Dollar said that VINCENT changed his version of the facts several times.


Documents stated that VINCENT told Chief Dollar that when he found Zeus dead, he did not remember leaving him in the vehicle and that “the whole night was a ‘fog’ due to his depression and PTSD.”
