New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo's dog had been missing since June.  The 5 year old English Bulldog, Knox, has been found, unfortunately, dead inside the home of its trainer.

The Trainer is being charged with one county of obstruction and could face charges of animal cruelty.

Knox disappeared in June while going on a walk with a Trainer.  The Police asked for the public's help to find him.  According to Mayo's Instagram account, his kids were sent on an emotional roller coaster and the family on a wild goose hunt.

The details of this story are tragic for the family and hard for me to even type:  In Mayo's Instagram post, he said that Knox was hidden away in a trash bag for two months while making it look like he ran away.  The person(s) who did this ought to be charged for a whole lot more than anything they come up with.
