Eric Hannon admitted that he left Athena home alone while he went to visit his girlfriend, but he claims that she drowned during his "one night away" when his basement flooded. An exam and testing of the dog's body revealed the horrible truth...she did not die quickly, she starved to death!
By the time that her body was found, all that was left was the short rope which kept her tethered to a post in the home's basement, a prong collar and her bones and fur.
Imagine her terror, and pain, as she waited for someone to free her. Imagine her heartbreak as she realized that no one would be coming to save her. Imagine her defeat as she laid down and waited for death to come.
Detective Sgt. R. Scott Mills wrote in a report dated Sept. 10. “Testing conducted on (the dog’s) femurs revealed a result of 2.4 percent, indicating that she died from a ‘slow, suffering death.’”
Hannon must pay for this atrocious crime!!
