KANSAS CITY (WITI) — A Kansas City mother is horrified after learning her daughter’s dog was killed — thrown from a third-story balcony — allegedly by her ex-boyfriend.
KCTV in Kansas City, Missouri says Debbie Ervie got a call from her daughter this past weekend — saying her ex-boyfriend had killed the puppy “to spite her.”
“My heart just sank. And hearing her hysterical, it just — it broke my heart that she was two-and-a-half hours away from me, and I can’t get to her immediately,” Ervie told KCTV.
Ervie says her daughter, Gabby, is a student at Missouri State University in Springfield.
The man accused of killing her dog is William “Trip” Rabourn III.
KCTV reports court documents say Gabby and Rabourn had a “sort-of” romance.
Apparently, he got handsy at a party. She ditched him — leaving him at a gas station without a ride.
That’s when KCTV says Rabourn went to Gabby’s apartment, kicked the door in, and grabbed her dog Oliver — a Maltese-Poodle mix.
Rabourn then allegedly walked to a third-story hall window.
Police say Rabourn threw the dog overhand out the window.
