BOSCAWEN — Police hope a cash reward will help lead to the identity of the person who shot a small black and white dog in the woods near his home earlier this month.
According to its Facebook page, “the Boscawen Police Department is currently offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone involved in the killing of Diablo the dog.”
Diablo, a smooth Fox Terrier who lived on Hollins Avenue with Sandy and Craig Wheeler, died after being shot by a rifle. He was found in a wooded conservation area, which is popular for hiking, about a sixth of a mile away from his home Nov. 8.
As the black and white dog was “about the size of a purse,” Killary previously said it is unlikely that the shooter mistook Diablo for another animal. He added the Wheelers told him Diablo had never shown aggressive tendencies.
Killary previously said police investigated clues after the dog was found, but have not received as many leads since then.
Although no amount was specified, anyone interested in contributing to the award or who has information is encouraged to contact Sgt. Jason Killary at Boscawen police at 753-9124 or call the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
