CANTON, Ga. (AP) - Investigators have discovered the remains of a dog at the home of a former school officer in north Georgia.

The Cherokee County Marshal’s Office said Tuesday that the remains of the dog were discovered weeks after Daniel Peabody was charged in connection with the deaths of two other dogs.

Police charged Peabody with aggravated animal cruelty on June 22 after they say he left his K-9, Inca, in his hot patrol car. Inca died from heatstroke. The investigation into Inca’s death produced evidence suggesting Peabody shot and killed a second dog, a yellow lab named Dale, in 2012.

Further investigation determined that Peabody killed a third dog. Chief Ron Hunton says that dog likely died of a gunshot.

It’s unclear if Peabody has an attorney.
