The dog of a former New England Patriot that had suspiciously disappeared has now been found dead.
According to the RISPCA, on August 5th they recovered the deceased body of “Knox”, the 5 year old English Bulldog, owned by the family of former New England Patriot Jerod Mayo.
The body was found in a residence in the Edgewood section of Cranston, where the dog trainer resided. Knox died while in the custody of the trainer, Amelia Ferreira. Ferreira is being charged by the Cranston Police Department, with one count of Obstruction, for concealing evidence relevant to the investigation. Evidence revealed that Ferreira has known the whereabouts of Knox’s deceased body for several weeks and intentionally concealed his body from authorities. Cause of death is currently unknown, and additional charges relating to animal cruelty may follow, pending the results of a necropsy.
Wrentham police had said the trainer was walking the English bulldog and another dog when he disappeared.
