FAYETTEVILLE, NC – The Army veteran who filmed herself tying her service dog a tree before she and her boyfriend shot it to death has committed suicide.

For those of you who may have missed the original story, 23-year-old Marinna Rollins got herself into a bit of trouble last month when she decided to get rid of her service dog.

Rollins had adopted the dog from her estranged husband because he was being deployed to South Korea for a year. Rollins renamed the gray-and-white male pit bull Camboui while also having him certified as her emotional support dog.

Rollins received a medical retirement from the Army in January and her family and friends say she struggled with PTSD and was diagnosed with additional mental health issues.

However, Rollins would soon tell a friend that raising “Cam” was too expensive and would post a message on Facebook that made it seem as if she was re-homing the dog.

“Great last day with the pooch!” she posted. “Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to :)”

Turns out, Camboui was headed out in the dark woods with Rollins and her boyfriend, 25-year-old Jarren Heng. The pair tied the dog up to a tree where Cam sat down and turned away from Rollins right before she shot him in the head with a rifle.

After shooting him a few more times, her boyfriend asks to shoot the dog before firing several rounds into the dog’s body. Rollins then dragged the dog to a shallow grave and draped a white sheet over him.

“It’s been real,” she can be heard saying. “I love you, you’re my puppy, you’re a good puppy, but…”

Oh, and of course they filmed the entire thing, laughing and smiling throughout the entire ordeal, before the video was posted on Facebook for some reason.

As you can imagine, shit hit the fan and the pair were eventually charged with cruelty to animals. Facebook groups were created calling for justice, animal rights groups planned to protest the court hearings, and the public was justifiably outrage over what the pair had done and the callousness nature in which they did it.

Well, it seems as if Rollins took the easy way out and did what a lot of people were instructing her to do. Nine days before her next scheduled court appearance, she was found dead inside her apartment in an apparent suicide.

Police have not released exact details, aside from saying her body was discovered after friends had trouble reaching her.
