At approximately 6:45pm Thursday, a 34 year old woman came across the mutilated body of Ms. Pinky. She immediately ran to the phone and contacted police.
When police arrived, they were met at the door by 6 extremely friendly retrievers and their worried human.
Upon cursory examination of the scene, investigators immediately ruled Ms. Pinky’s death a homicide.
When asked to provide details, the woman stated that she had been putting away laundry when she heard a horrible sound. She said it could only be described as the sound a squeaky animal makes before it dies. She said the noise only lasted a few minutes during which time she was rushing down to the living room from her bedroom on the 2nd floor of the house.
When asked what she saw, the woman became tearful and said she walked into the living room and couldn’t find anything disturbed, so moved into the kitchen, only to discover Ms. Pinky’s mutilated body.
When asked if she had touched anything, she said she was too afraid to do anything other than run back upstairs and dial 9-1-1.
When asked if she noticed anyone near or leaving the scene, she said she thought she heard the sound of paws moving quickly towards the dining room, but she couldn’t identify the unknown subject.
next, investigators went into the living room to question the little fox red lab.
When asked what she had seen or heard, she climbed under a red sleeping bag and refused to answer.
Seeing a black lab moving towards the stairs, investigators gave up on the little lab and followed.
The black lab claimed she hadn’t heard or seen anything. She said she had been in the backyard with a golden retriever and another female fox red lab, chasing squirrels.
Noticing a white coloured lab lying in the doorway of the bathroom, watching, investigators decided to see what she could tell them.
Unlike the little fox red lab who refused to answer and the black lab who claimed to have been outside, the white lab seemed to know exactly what had occurred
and was dying to share her story.
According to her, a big male fox red lab snuck up behind Ms. Pinky and snatched her off the ground. He then proceeded to take her into the kitchen, where the white lab says she saw him lie down and begin stripping off Ms. Pinky’s pink and yellow flesh. Horrified by what she had witnessed, the white lab says she quickly turned away and hid in the closet until she heard police arrive.
Feeling as though they had obtained enough evidence to arrest and charge their suspect, investigators searched the house.
they found Ms. pinky’s killer sprawled on the bed in the master bedroom snoring loudly. Afraid they might spook their suspect, investigators called for a leash before taking him into custody.
Ms. Pinky will be laid to rest in the waste section of the family garbage container on Saturday, April 5th, at 11:00am.
The family dogs are accepting donations to be put into the Buy a Dog A Toy Fund.
