Police have found the owner of a dog killed at a Mishawaka elementary school on Monday, but they’re still looking for a suspect or suspects.

The dog was a 6-year-old Terrier Mix named Baby Girl, according to WSBT. She was let outside her home early Monday morning, April 11, and she disappeared.

Baby Girl was found dead on a fenced off playground at Emmons Elementary School on Monday afternoon. School officials told WNDU that the area is not normally used by students or staff and that someone had to climb over the fence to access it.

Some Emmons Elementary students saw the dog’s body on Monday before teachers took the students inside, according to WNDU. The principal was notified and police were called.

Students were sent home Monday with a note letting parents know that some students saw the dog.

Anyone with information about the dog’s death is asked to contact Lt. Doug Grow with the Mishawaka Police Department at 574-258-1684.
