Officers said Crevasse admitted to killing his father’s dog and burying it in the backyard, according to Fox 35. The dog was an 18-year-old poodle-mix named “Fuzzy.”

When Crevasse’s father confronted him about the incident, the suspect hit his dad twice in the nose, according to Fox 35.

Animal abuse

Crevasse told police he killed Fuzzy two days earlier and wrapped the dog in a wet towel, according to the report. He then buried the dog where another dog had already dug a 2-foot-deep hole in the yard.

Crevasse said he buried the dog because the animal was old and he thought it was already dying, according to the report. Crevasse also kept laughing while telling police about his alleged crime.

Police arrested Crevasse and he was booked into jail, where he is being held on $10,000 bond.
