This is truly sickening.
An ex-cop who was already being investigated for the deaths of two K-9 unit dogs may have actually killed a third animal as well.
Former Cherokee County, Georgia school resource officer Dan Peabody was charged with animal cruelty last month when it was discovered that he left his 4-year-old Belgian Malinois to die in the backseat of his hot car.
Inca was found dead on June 10, nearly four years after a Yellow Lab named Dale was also reported dead by the officer.
Peabody, 50, originally claimed Dale had simply choked to death on a toy after five years of service back in 2012 before admitting to shooting the animal… but when police searched his Canton home following Inca’s tragic death on Tuesday, they discovered remains of a third dog — Inca’s 10-year-old grandmother!
Unfortunately, Dale’s remains have yet to be found, but Dan is likely going to be charged for all three deaths.
Forensic veterinarians are now looking into the possibility of even more dead pets in Peabody’s home, and while Inca, Dale, and the third dog didn’t need to die, hopefully their losses will save other K-9s from similar fates.
Rest in peace, pups.
