A Public Servant?
"[Jenelle] contacted Columbus County Sheriff's Office by public service. [She] advised that on April 29th, at approximately 6:30 pm, her dog bit her daughter, leaving a scratch on her face," reads the statement issued on Thursday.
"[She] advised that her husband, David Eason, threw the dog outside. She then advised that after David realized that the dog scratched their child, he went outside and shot the dog," the statement continued. "During this conversation, Jenelle stated that she did hear a gunshot but did not witness the incident."
The most crucial part of that statement may be that Jenelle never actually laid eyes on the dog's body. Police seem to be under the impression that there was no dog corpse for her to see.
The Other Witnesses
And while Jenelle and David's kids were at home during the incident, Jenelle specified that they did not witness the shooting.
The Maryssa Factor
Evans told police that David's 11-year-old daughter Maryssa fled into her bedroom and did not re-emerge until the following day.
"Columbus County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigators located no physical evidence to substantiate that the allegations against David Eason are factual," the police statement said.
