A Minneapolis woman who spent months looking for her missing dogs claims someone who searched for him, is now charged with killing him.
“She helped me hang up posters,” said Shelly Byzewski. “She told me things like, ‘we gotta keep looking’, ‘somebody has got to have him’, ‘people get attached quick’, ‘hang posters’, which I was already doing.”
On Monday, 24-year-old Elizabeth Osterbauer is due in court on charges of burglary and cruelty to animals.
Investigators allege that during a June burglary, Osterbauer stole Byzewski’s dog Ducky, a three-year-old miniature Pincher.
According to investigators, a witness says Osterbauer put Ducky in a pillow case, took him to a wildlife preserve and drowned him.
Osterbauer is currently in jail.
