Virginia State Police Hero Trooper Christopher Daniel Campbell was charged in the puppycide described below, which the owner described as “cold hearted.”
Initially, local Manassas, VA Police officers responded to calls from neighbors about gunshots.
When the city cops arrived, they found a brown pitbull, injured from the gunshot, but the dog was still alive.
The dog Che, was then taken to the animal hospital, where he later died from the wound inflicted by Hero Trooper Campbell.
Someone just killed our Pitbull, Che! This happened in Manassas Park by Old Centreville Rd. If anyone has any information please contact us. How can anyone have that cold heart to kill an animal???
Fuk y’all whoever did this…
Flores later posted that the most difficult thing to do was inform her children about the death of Che, “The kids loved him so much, we all did.”
As it turns out, information given by Hero Campbell’s own department, the Virginia State Police, led ultimately to Manassas police making the blue on blue arrest.
According to Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corrine Geller:
“As soon as we were made aware of the alleged incident, our supervisors notified the Manassa Park Police Department. We shared information with them and they proceeded with their investigation. They have their own criminal investigation because it’s their incident. We are simply cooperating with them in any way we can. But Virginia State Police have initiated an internal investigation [on Campbell].”
She also told insidenova.com, “We have no idea why it happened. We are still in shock that someone like him who is supposed to protect our community would commit such a cruel crime against a dog.”
Spokeswoman Geller did not comment about specific information that led to Hero Trooper Campbell’s arrest, citing a Virginia State law states that arrest reports can be held until after a criminal case is over.
