Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

Authorities in Marshall County are searching for a suspect after they found a dead dog near Washington Lands on Friday.

According to Marshall County Sheriff Kevin Cecil, they discovered the animal along Route 2 after receiving an anonymous tip. Cecil said the animal had been skinned and its front paws had been removed. Authorities believe the dog had been dropped on the side of the road between midnight and 10 a.m.

At the scene authorities found little physical evidence, but were able to find a set of skid marks. Right now the sheriff's office is asking for the public's help. They are looking for any vehicle that pulled off the hill side of the highway traveling north, about a quarter mile south of Washington Lands on Route 2.
