PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) - John Forsythe of Pontotoc has asked for help from the community to track down the person who killed his two family dogs.
"They both had been shot in the head and left on the side of the road," Forsythe said.
The bail bondsman and his wife are heartbroken after finding out their two dogs, Diesel and Jinx, were brutally killed after they ran away from home about two weeks ago.
He said their leaving was not unusual.
"They're always back within a 24-hour period at the most."
Forsythe took to social media to get the word out of his missing pups.
Not long after, a friend called and said he found the animals dead 17 miles away from home. Jinx is a shepherd mix. Diesel a pitbull.
"He's been raised here around everybody; he's been around other animals," Forsythe said. "There was nothing aggressive about that animal at all."
Now, he wants to know who's responsible for shooting them both in the head at point-blank range.
"I think it's someone out there that knows what happened to my animals, and I'm going to find out."
