• Norfolk DA’s office inundated with ‘Puppy Doe’ tips


    QUINCY, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – The Norfolk District Attorney's Office says it has been inundated with tips in the "Puppy Doe" torture investigation.

    Michael Morrissey said his office has received hundreds of calls, tips, concerns and offers for assistance from around the world.

    "Please be assured that we are following up with each tip received even those that have taken us out of state," said Quincy Police Chief Paul Keenan.

    "The information we have received to date from the public has been invaluable in guiding our actions through the course of the investigation," said Morrissey.

    The DA's office said many callers have requested information into the status of the investigation. Officials said releasing any information would compromise the investigation and violate ethics laws.

    "Please be assured that these three agencies are working in concert to identify and hold accountable the person or persons responsible for the torture of Puppy Doe. It is highly unlikely that this level of sadistic cruelty could be shown to one animal and not be part of a pattern involving other animals or perhaps vulnerable people," said Morrissey.

    Anyone with information in the "Puppy Doe" investigation is encouraged to call the Animal Rescue League of Boston at 617-226-5610 or Quincy Police Det. Thomas Pepdjonovich at 617-745-5774.
