The Rogers County District Attorney is asking the Roger's County Sheriff's Office to re-open a case regarding the dragging death of the dog Jetta, whose body was found Saturday.
District Attorney Janice Steidley said, "Our office received new information as late as last night. Based upon the new information that has been brought to my attention I have requested the Rogers County Sheriff's Office re-open their case and investigate the new leads that have been presented to the District Attorney's Office."
Steidley said that she considers this case to still be an open investigation.
"Under the law the District Attorney's Office cannot charge a person with a crime based upon mere suspicion, speculation or hunches. We have to make a decision based upon the evidence presented to us by the law enforcement agency. This is how every case is handled" said Steidley.
The case has drawn widespread public attention.
"We have heard the cries for justice loud and clear and are doing everything possible to answer them. At this point, the contacts with our office or the Sheriff's office that will move the case forward are those which involve direct physical evidence or witnesses who actually saw any kind of interaction between Jetta and a person or persons between Wednesday, Aug. 29. and Saturday, Sept. 1," Steidley concluded.
Anyone with information should call 918-341-3620.
