Daniel E. AdamsDunnedin, Fl – Daniel Adams and his girlfriend were arrested after police say the couple took their child to kill a dog owned by Adams’ parents, then tried covering up the killing by staging a robbery.

Adams, 34, drove to his parent’s home with the intentions of handling his parent’s dog, Daisy, a 4-year-old Labrador they felt was a danger to others. Along for the ride were his girlfriend Lauren Curran, 28, and their son.

According to the couple, Daisy had been demonstrating aggressive behavior, including snapping at another family dog, that left the couple and their son fearful of the dog. To fix that issue, they decided to kill it.

Investigators say Curran “killed the dog with an intravenous needle filled with an unknown medication.” When the deed was done, the couple tried to cover their tracks by making it appear like the death was the result of a burglary inside the home by stealing an iPad.

Their fool-proof plan to kill the dog and cover it up by stealing an Apple product – that can be tracked once turned on – was thwarted after what can no doubt be a very short investigation.

Adams and Curran were arrested and both charged with burglary and cruelty to animals. They were also hit with child abuse charges for having their child with them when they broke into the home. Adams is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $20,000 bond; Curran was being held on $15,000 bond.
