Story

Justice sought for Kiya

Cops are tracking new leads in the “Puppy Doe” case after the pit bull’s heartbroken original owner has come forward in a dramatic bid to help capture the barbaric brute who tortured the dog and left it for dead in a Quincy park.

“The guilt and responsibility I felt — my heart broke. It was my responsibility to find her a good home,” a tearful Laura Hankins told the Herald yesterday. “The list of things done to her are just so inhuman and so disgusting. She was the sweetest dog.”

Hankins said she gave the puppy pit bull mix she named Kiya to a Grafton woman in May after she said she was forced to get rid of the dog because her landlord was afraid she would lose her homeowners insurance.

Hankins said she contacted police and tried to call the Grafton woman when she heard the news that Kiya, known to authorities as Puppy Doe, was euthanized Aug. 31 after she was found in a Quincy park beaten, stabbed, burned and tortured, including having her limbs pulled apart and her tongue crudely cut into a split.

“She has been forthcoming and assisting in any way she can. The information she’s given us we’re following up on,” said Quincy Detective Sgt. Richard Gilmore, adding that cops continue to field hundreds of calls from tipsters. “We appreciate any help that the public can give. It’s not just because of the cruelty to the animal but because there could be more behind it.”

The Grafton woman, who police believe gave the dog away, said she had no information about Kiya and hung up when reached by phone yesterday.

Hankins said she and her boyfriend bought Kiya in December for $200 through a Craigslist ad from a Weymouth man. Hankins said Kiya, who a vet estimated to be about 12 weeks old at the time, soon happily bonded with the family and her two other dogs, a chihuahua named Molly and a miniature pinscher, Nico.

But when Kiya began to show more prominent pit bull features as she got older, Hankins said her landlord told her the dog had to go.

“No one was willing to rent to someone with a pit bull and two other dogs. We looked for four months,” Hankins said. “We even offered our landlord more money.”

Hankins feared Kiya would be locked in a crate if she took her to a shelter, so she adopted her out to a Webster woman through Craigslist. Hankins took the pup back after a only few days when the woman contacted her to say the dog didn’t seem to like it there.

Then, the woman from Grafton contacted Hankins about Kiya.
“She seemed so wonderful and she seemed like she could offer Kiya more than I could,” Hankins said.

Hankins said she asked the woman to contact her if she could no longer keep Kiya and she would find her a new home. The woman sent messages and pictures of Kiya, but the updates stopped in July, Hankins said.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston is offering a $5,000 reward for tips leading to the dog-torturer’s arrest, and Misty’s Journey and Second Chance Rescue in New York City yesterday raised an additional $10,000 in reward money.

“I just want to find whoever did this,” Hankins said. “From what I read I think this is not the first time they did this and probably not the last.”

  1. I do NOT believe Hankins!!!

    1. I’m not sure who to believe but someone definately is hiding something and hopefully the $18,000 (so far) of combined offers to someone with good info, will motivate someone to tell the truth.

  2. he story of Puppy Doe – Kiya is very disturbing, revolting….but most of all…..VERY SAD.
    I think about her every single day, with so much sadness.

    I had no idea the photo of Kiya euthanized was real. Meaning, I always though that photo was Kiya at the vet, and she was on medication for the pain.
    Now, I understand why she had such a peaceful look in her face. No wonder. She only found peace when she die.
    My heart was already broken….but now after looking to the sequence of how things took place….I have my heart in small pieces….:)))))

  3. I know what you mean. I will never believe this woman! It was her responsibility to take care of Kiya… and now she is dead!
