UPDATE: New Information Shines Light On What Really Happened to Jetta

NewsOn6.com – Tulsa, OK – News, Weather, Video and Sports – KOTV.com |

A man has come forward with information regarding the death of Jetta, a black lab that was found this past Saturday morning initially believed to have been dragged to her death. The death was thought to be a horrible case of animal cruelty and had outraged the community of animal lovers. The information volunteered by this man shed a different light on what many thought had happened to Jetta.

The man reportedly told investigators that he found Jetta on his property injured due to being hit by a car or some similar accident. Jetta was in a lot of pain and visibly suffering so the man shot her to put her out of her misery.

He initially left Jetta on his property, but the man later on moved the deceased dog off his property due to odor. The man used wire to drag her to the side of the road and off his property. This is why Jetta’s body was found with her legs bound, leading people to believe she had been dragged to her death. Witnesses have supported the man’s story.

The case has been forwarded to the Rogers County District Attorney’s office where they will determine what, if any, charges will be filed. It no longer appears that animal cruelty charges will be filed, though there are still possible charges including the misdemeanor charge of unlawful disposal of a corps.

Animal lovers had come forward over the past few days, including University of Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer, and raised over $25,000 as a reward for those with information in the case. Since this money is no longer needed, Wild Heart Ranch, the rescue group organizing the reward, has offered to refund all donors.

  1. I smell a giant GIANT “rat” and it IS the odor of decomposing murdered dog. I went to the local news sources (multiple – print and broadcast) and read everything I could put my eyes on including “comments” sections usually populated with information from local residents who also are largely of the opinion that there is a cover-up going on. Think about the fact that the dog wasn’t missing long enough to have begun the odorous phase of decomposition. Second, the trail of blood and fur was approximately a mile long, not just across a road as the oh-so-helpful “turned himself in” man tries to convince law enforcement of (“drag her to the side of the road and off his property”). Third: any reasonably responsible person faced with this kind of situation EVEN IN RANCHING COUNTRY where people deal daily with accidents, wildlife and livestock issues would have notified law enforcement of the situation – a decent person would realize someone was probably looking for a missing dog and would likely themselves contact law enforcement and/or the local animal control agency.

    IMO based on what I read in local news sources and direct quotes in those sources from the owners and law enforcement, I strongly suspect that the murderer is known to and is likely a friend of those in law enforcement – and “history is being re-written.” I also think that the murder was a crime targeted against the owner(s) by killing something the owners cared about. Moreover, I think the owners themselves probably have a pretty good idea who may have been the killer.

    Accident? NO, not IMO. Felony animal cruelty (deliberate torture and murder)? IMO, YES.

  2. If I found a dog who had been hit by a car and was in visible pain, I would take it to the vet. This excuse is not acceptable.

  3. I hope the authority is not buying this Hoolabaloo of a story. JenR you are right it smells awful and it is not the deceased dog, its the killer’s lies. It would upset me if this is the end of the story. Use the money to find someone who is impartial enough to find the real truth or donate it to a good cause hopefully canine related. The man came forward thinking he would get the money. He should get nothing. Nothing he did was humane. If he has a conscience, hope it eats him alive. Scumbag !
