After hearing several complaints about an unknown crying noise coming from a Florida neighborhood, police were dispatched to investigate. When they arrived on the scene, they immediately traced the sound and discovered that it was coming from within an abandoned blue suitcase. However, they were left horrified over what they found when they looked inside.
After the police received a noise complaint about sounds coming from an abandoned building in Hollywood, Florida, they went to the area to investigate but found nothing inside the rundown establishment. However, after hearing the cries from behind the building, they quickly traced the sound and discovered that it was coming from within a blue suitcase. Unfortunately, nothing could have prepared them for what they would find when they looked inside.
Although the police have seen many disturbing things throughout their careers, what was left inside the suitcase was stomach churning. A sick person had beaten and repeatedly stabbed a helpless dog, who has since been named Ollie. To make matters even worse, they had trapped the injured animal inside of a suitcase, where they presumed no one would find him, leaving him for dead.
When the police opened the suitcase, they immediately noticed that Ollie, a terrier mix, was covered in blood, with deep cuts on his head and body, according to Fox 10. They quickly transported him to an animal hospital, where the one-year-old pup was treated for his gruesome injuries.
“We’ll close up the wounds that he has on his chest, so he has, probably like, 20 to 30 stab wounds on his chest and his right front leg, and so, that’s the next step,” Dr. Nicole Patterson told WSVN.
Meanwhile, a not-for-profit organization, Grateful Paws Dog and Cat Rescue, is covering the cost of Ollie’s medical care. A GoFundMe page has been opened and has already raised over $40,000, surpassing their small goal of $1,500. Unfortunately, that’s where the good news ends.
Although Ollie’s veterinarian was originally optimistic, the dog eventually passed away as a result of his injuries. “Late yesterday afternoon Ollie started to deteriorate,” explained Linda Ream of VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital, where Ollie underwent two operations this week, according to Patch.
“His Dr. began to address his systems with more intensive medical care although his body was overcome with fatigue and damage and it could not handle it. Ollie’s body was too overwhelmed and he passed at 8:30 p.m.,” she added. “This has been a tragic case. Our staff and our community has been moved by Ollie and in his last hours he was surrounded by 30 people that loved and cared about him.”
Police continue to search for the sick person responsible for taking Ollie’s life. Currently, they have no suspects but are urging anyone with information about what had happened to contact investigators.
It takes a sick person to harm an innocent animal and leave it to die in a suitcase, where no one will find them. It’s only a matter of time before someone puts the pieces together and gives this scum of a human the punishment they deserve. Thankfully, Ollie was given a brief moment where he was surrounded by people who loved and cared for him before he passed away. No animal deserves to be treated like that — especially a loving dog like Ollie.
