Crystal Brown’s world was turned upside down a month ago when Chevy, her 4-year-old Australian shepherd mix, didn’t come home.
“I told him everything and he never shared any of my secrets,” said Crystal, 17, who has had some troubled times in her young life. Chevy was her therapy dog, and she leaned on him for comfort and support.
Two weeks ago, a gift-wrapped box was left at the house where she lives with her grandmother in St. Paul’s Rice Street area. Inside the box, Crystal was horrified to find her dog’s head.
“This was so cruel,” Crystal said Wednesday. “This is one sick, twisted person.”
