PAYNE COUNTY, OK (KSWO)-  Last week, authorities found Michael Hamilton’s body dumped and burned in Payne County. The body of Hamilton’s service dog has now been found.

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Michael Hamilton was struck in the head with a ball bat and left for dead inside a Stillwater home all the while Hamilton’s service dog was nearby. After the suspects dumped Hamilton’s body, they drove to either rural Kay County or rural Noble County and dumped the dog.

The pit bull mix that answered to Lil Mutt was shot and killed over the weekend. Investigators were hoping to reunite the victim's dog with his family.
