Outrage and grief have spread throughout Oklahoma City in response to a series of malicious dog drownings. According to Major Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow with the Oklahoma City Police Department, since January 19th, four dogs have been found dead by drowning in Edwards Park lake in east Oklahoma City.
It has been discovered that the dogs had been tied to heavy objects such as bricks and cinder blocks which dragged them down to their watery graves.
Wardlow went on to express her dismay that no leads have been made in the case thus far and called upon any members of the community with information to come forward.
Brian Ragland, a frequent visitor to the lake, described Edwards Park as “attracting a rough crowd” leading him to believe that an onlooker must have witnessed something that could help lead to the capture of the suspect.
The Oklahoma City Police Department’s efforts to bring justice to these crimes were articulated as they vehemently encouraged anyone with information to get in contact with them through Oklahoma Crime Stoppers.
It is the responsibility of everyone in our society to actively participate in preventing this type of unimaginable crime. The Oklahoma City Police Department is doing their part and asking for anyone with information to come forward.
