Ex-NFL Star And Family Suffer Devastating Loss

Ex-NFL star, Jerod Mayo’s missing dog was found in the most frightening way.

Unfortunately, the answers we prayed for regarding Knox aren't ones we were ready to face. Knowing what we know now about @offleashk9trainingprov @offleashk9training we mentally explored every outcome possible and the reality is we were right. Knox has passed and his BODY WAS FOUND IN THE HOME OF THE OFFLEASH TRAINER. IT's disgusting and inhumane that a company full of "dog lovers" would hide a family pet IN A CLOSET FOR TWO MONTHS and compulsively lie and send us on a wild goose hunt and our kids on an emotional rollercoaster. Staging him running away, him being stolen, even him drowning having us knocking on doors sending us false leads as we searched two states. We've hired scuba teams, private investigators, lawyers and more when they knew they HAD HIM IN THEIR HOME IN A TRASH BAG tucked away the whole two months. Yeah A TRASH BAG! We raised Knox like our child as you guys can see from our photos and those of you who know us. It hurts to have to accept that our beloved Knox was thought of as trash as they saw our family hurting. Currently all that these people are facing is obstruction. Not animal cruelty????????‍♀️ or filing false police reports or for plain ole tossing someone's family member in a trash bag and storing it! From the Mayo family, we want to thank all of the people who spent countless hours looking for Knox. To our social media family, thank you for posting every day. We still have work to do.....we need to bring awareness to this problem so it never happens again. This is just getting started #repost #justice4knox #knoxmayo #offleashk9training #olk9training #olk9ri #offleashk9 #ripknox #knoxslaw

After searching high a low, all over the city, going door to door asking if they’ve seen him. The Mayo family has finally come to a conclusion that the trainer of the dog hid poor Knox, in a trash bag in a closet.

The trainer hid the dead dog in the closet for two months and lied to both the family and the police about the dog running away.

The Mayo family loved and cherished Knox and viewed him as a family member.

It’s sickening hearing that a trainer of all things could treat a dog in such a way, and then not have the guts to come clean to the family.

Now the Mayo family is without a beloved family member.

Prayers for the Mayo family during this tough time.
