On Jan. 26, Old Brooklyn resident Ricardo Reinoso let his dog Henry out into his yard. Dog owners with fenced-in yards do that all the time without as much as a thought that their dog might be in danger. And why should they have to worry? On that date, however, something would happen that would take his two-and-a-half-year-old Labrador/Terrier mix friend away from Reinoso forever. It all started when Henry jumped the fence.
When he realized that Henry had escaped the yard, Reinoso went back into the house to grab a leash. But Reinoso did not have to search far for his dog. Henry had already come back home.
Henry had been shot in the head with an arrow. He was bleeding to death from the arrow lodged in his head.
Henry came back home to die in his owners arms. And he did just that.
WOIO reports that on Thursday, Cleveland Police issued an arrest warrant for 32-year-old Matthew Jones. The warrant was issued after the City Prosecutor’s Office reviewed the evidence. The warrant was for Cruelty to Animals, a misdemeanor charge in Ohio.
Please share this information to help catch the person responsible for killing Henry. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Matthew Jones is asked to contact the Cleveland Police Department’s Second District at 216-623-5200.
