    Girl finds missing dog's head in box on doorstep

    Girl finds missing dog's head in box on doorstep

    ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) -- A 17-year-old girl who spent weeks looking for her missing dog unwrapped a box left on her doorstep and found the pet's severed head inside, authorities said.

    Homicide investigators were looking into the case because of the "implied" terroristic threat, St. Paul Police Sgt. Jim Gray said. The Humane Society of the United States said Wednesday it was offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

    "This was extraordinarily heinous," said Dale Bartlett, the Humane Society's deputy manager for animal cruelty issues. "I deal with hundreds and hundreds of cruelty cases each year. When I read about this case, it took my breath away. It's horrible."

    After Crystal Brown's 4-year-old Australian shepherd mix, Chevy, wandered away last month, she put up "missing" posters in her neighborhood and went door to door looking for him. She called the St. Paul animal shelter and rode the bus there several times.

    "I felt empty," Crystal told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. "I couldn't talk to anyone. He was my dog. It was just me and him. ... I told him everything and he never shared any of my secrets."

    Two weeks ago, a gift-wrapped box was left at the house Crystal shares with her grandmother. The box had batteries on top, and a note that said "Congratulations Crystal. This side up. Batteries included."

    Crystal opened the box and found her dog's head inside. The box also contained Valentine's Day candy.

    Crystal screamed when she saw her dog's face.

    "She was just hysterical," said Crystal's grandmother, Shirley Brown. "She was screaming. She said, 'Grandma, it's my dog's head!'

    "I said, 'no it can't be!"'

    Authorities say the case is an isolated incident and the suspect likely knew the family. A motive is unclear.

    "This was so cruel," Crystal said. "This is one sick, twisted person."

    She now has a new puppy, another Australian shepherd. She's named it Diesel. "Hopefully, he'll be my best friend," Crystal said.

    Whoever did this deserves to be castrated.

    This story makes me want to cry.

    If someone did this to my dog... I dunno, I'd hope he was arrested first because if I got my hands on him I'd start beating him and I don't think I'd be able to stop. What a sad, awful story.

    "Terroristic threat"?

    Sadistic, cruel, and downright evil? Sure. But using "terroristic" in this context really cheapens the impact of that word.

    Oh dear lord! That is horrible. What sick son of a you know what would do a thing like that. It's hideous enough to kill the animal, sicker yet that they would mutulate the animal and beyond the pale that they would send the head to the kid.

    This is one area where I think a little revenge/vengance isn't such a bad thing.

    You're thinking in the wrong terms thanks to our 'pals' like Osama. This refers to terrorizing someone.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Yes, statutorily, terroristic threatening/terrorism has more than the Osama-type terrorism definition.

    But seriously, I'd be checking all the old timers on the road. Dog must have peed on some prize winning roses or something. Who in their right mind does that to a dog. Similar story in Cincinnati last night led the news between basketball games. Apparently somebody in Butler County skinned and boiled their dog. What is wrong with people?

    Has the Corleone family been mentioned as possible suspects??

    That happens in parts of Asia on a regular basis.

    "I felt empty," Crystal told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. "I couldn't talk to anyone. He was my dog. It was just me and him. ... I told him everything and he never shared any of my secrets."
    And on a lighter note.

    No kidding. What dog has ever shared someone's secrets?

    But seriously, it seems like this girl needs a few friends.

    Sounds to me like a jealous jilted boyfriend, a new girlfriend of an ex, or ex girlfriend of a new beau...
