It was Mt Washington in the state of Ohio. To bad he isn't still alive, I'd add adultery to the domestic violence charges.A few questions occur to me, too. Why didn't OP call the police when the two beatings occurred? When the dog was taken, the police might have recovered it during an arrest.
And when exactly was the dog taken? Certainly before the death. Depending on the when, there could be a statute of limitations there. I think it's two years for tort in most places.
The other thing that doesn't make sense is the lost dog attachment that says the dog was last seen on Nov 23 2023 in Ohio and Washington. Pretty remarkable dog, able to be in two places on the same date. Teleportation maybe.
