Dog Witnesses Owner’s Cold Blooded Murder and Mourns Man’s Death

Clifford cannot tell police who killed his owner, but his actions do let us know he misses his best friend.

No one knows who killed 23-year-old Edwin Omar Osorto Cruz, no one other than Clifford, a mixed breed dog found guarding his owner’s body. Sadly, he can’t tell authorities who is responsible for the man’s death.

According to El Heraldo, on the night of Jan. 25, 2016, Osorto Cruz was kidnapped and dragged to an area known as El Durazno, near Tegucigalpa, Honduras. There his life ended violently. The only witness to the horrific crime is the man’s loyal dog. He followed his owner and the criminals to the very spot where the young man’s life ended.

The next morning local police officers found the deceased and Clifford guarding the body. At first officers were not able to go near the victim but after the pet was removed, authorities were able to identify the man and remove his body from the crime scene.

There are no leads on who committed this crime. The loyal dog mourns his owner’s death and by his actions we know he misses and wishes his human would still be alive.

    1. I pray Clifford finds a very loving family. This dog has gone through very traumtic stress and needs a loving, patient, caring family. This dog will be stressed out but will with the right family will find love, compassion and know how to receive it back.

  1. Uhg this hit home….my dads murderer knew that my dads dog would defend him so he took the dog out to the woods tied muttley up and beat him
    .left him and went back to the house and killed my dad…i found out when i got to the funeral that they found his dog alive and was at the shelter when i got their he had broken ribs jaw…i couldnt move him to bring him back hometo fla,so i left him to get treated and send for him later to find out he died not from any of the injuries ,but from cancer ..i think he died of a broken heart

  2. This is very sad.. My mom is from that city and unfortunately the violence there is extremely bad and heartbreaking.. Prayers to Clifford and to the deceased owner

  3. They could hire a good animal communicator, the dog saw the killers and a good animal communicator can gather some useful info , of course not a name but at least a description or smell or so ….

  4. Another example of unconditional love! I feel for Clifford. I’m sure that if he “ran across” the person who killed his owner, he would “take care” of him. Dogs DON’T forger.

  5. The video was removed!! Does anyone know what happened to the two dogs on the side of the road – One dog was standing over his friend as a SubHuman just filmed the tragic scene –

  6. Only if Clifford could speak, surely the story of how or what happened could be traumatizing. Imagine seeing it all happening. Poor Cliff.
