Animal advocates say remains in Ohio are NYC dog

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Animal advocates say remains buried behind a northwest Ohio home are those of a dog that was exonerated in a New York City homicide and later sent to a woman who ran a rescue and lived at the Toledo property.

The Blade (http://bit.ly/167TgV7 ) reports the 130-pound dogo argentino was held after its owner was accused in the 2011 killing of his roommate, who had bite wounds. When the dog was cleared, an animal defense group sent it to an Ohio woman, who reported it stolen in January.

Two group members acting on a tip found remains at the home this weekend and contacted police. The group says a microchip confirmed it was the missing dog.

The woman who lived at the home denies that and maintains the dog was stolen.
