The story of a former Army soldier who shot and killed her dog on what became a horrific viral video has taken a new and even darker turn. Marinna Rollins was found in her apartment by unidentified friends on Sunday. She was dead. The police have yet to release information concerning the cause of death, but it appears to be a possible suicide.
Rollins and her boyfriend, Jarren Heng, became infamous last month with they were arrested for killing a service dog. The pair had tied the dog that belonged to Rollins to a tree and then shot it several times with a rifle.
After the incident went viral on social media channels, the Army acknowledged that Rollins had been medically discharged. Heng was still on active duty.
Rollins and her boyfriend, Jarren Heng, took the dog to a wooded area, shot it five times, and even joked with one another as it died.
Heng is still in the Army. Rollins had recently been medically discharged.
Rollins voice is also on the video. “It’s been real,” she says. “I love you, you’re my puppy, you’re a good puppy, but….”
After shooting Cam, the pair drag the body around briefly before they bury the dog in a shallow grave they’d dug for the purpose.
The dog, who had formerly been named Huey, came from the Cumberland County Animal Shelter. His death sparked an immediate backlash. A Facebook page called Justice for Cam sought attention for the crime.
We’ll bring more of the story as it develops.
