A man in Orange, California is now grieving after his stolen car was recovered with his dead dog inside. At about 4:50 A.M. on March 26th, Larry Burgoon’s black Honda Civic was stolen from a local gas station.
Burgoon had left the doors unlocked and the keys inside, while he made a quick trip in the station. The dog named Miles had been left in the backseat.
When he returned a few minutes later, the vehicle was gone and Miles was nowhere in sight. For two full weeks, Burgoon scoured local neighborhoods for any sign of Miles.
Then came the call from police. Officers informed him the car had been found in a business complex. Miles was left inside the vehicle and sadly, had died.
It is not yet known how long the car had been at the complex or the cause of Miles’ death. Lt. Fred Lopez says the Civic is currently being processed for evidence and hopes any left behind DNA will lead to the arrests of the suspects.
From the start, Burgoon could have cared less about the car, he only wanted his beloved pet back. Now, the only bright side for Burgoon is that he has closure.
He rescued Miles about three years ago. Burgoon says the pooch followed him everywhere and was like a son to him.
