Grieving Family’s Dog Reportedly Abducted and Burned to Death Deserves Justice

Target: Steve Gold, County Attorney for Henderson County, Kentucky

Goal: Punish the man who allegedly burned a grieving family’s dog to death.

A beloved family dog was reportedly burned to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. He was seemingly abducted and later found dead in a public bathroom at the Henderson County Fairground. Demand justice for this innocent animal.

Gina Howard and her family were in the process of mourning a family member when their beloved miniature poodle, Duke, was reportedly abducted and burned to death. Devastated and fearing for the safety of other local animals, they pleaded with the public for help in identifying the person responsible for their loss. Those outcries were heard when 32 -year-old Bryan K. Matthews Jr. was arrested on charges of torturing a dog with serious injury or death and 3rd Degree arson.

“We’ve already been through so much this week, and to have another tragedy thrown at us like that, I don’t know how to digest it, I don’t know how to accept it,” said Howard.

Duke’s family has requested that full justice be served in his case. Sign below and demand that the person found responsible for this dog’s untimely and torturous death is punished to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear County Attorney Gold,

A Henderson County family is now mourning the murder of not one, but two family members. First, Mariah Strother was gunned down at a gas station. Then, her father and his family suffered another loss when their beloved miniature poodle, Duke, was apparently abducted and burned to death at the Henderson County Fairgrounds.

The arrest of Bryan K. Matthews Jr. on charges of torturing a dog with serious injury or death and 3rd Degree arson has brought some comfort for this family. However, more must be done to ensure that no other animal suffers.

I demand that you prosecute this case and seek a swift and harsh penalty for the person found responsible for Duke’s suffering and death.

Life’s hard enough without these scum of the earth walking free. Get them off the streets, period. Justice demanded for this dog and all defenseless animals murdered by human f***ing monsters!!

  4. This man, presumably a white racist, was simply frustrated that he was unable to vent his anger on the blacks and so he chose to taken vengeance on the most innocent member of the grieving family. The man must be given the severest punishment and better still burnt alive so that he could get a taste of his own medicine. This man is a fucking scum of the earth.

    • This “man ” is black and it doesnt matter what shape/race or twisted ideologies he has.
