Pet mini-pig stolen during robbery in Ohio City found dead

Posted September 22

— Sad news comes to us Thursday about the mini-pig that was stolen during a home burglary in Ohio City last week.

According to the pig's owner, Spam was found dead in a yard near East 140th Street and Coit Road Thursday morning.

Spam was taken to the Animal Protective League for an autopsy as police continue to investigate.

A GoFundMe page was started by Spam's owner, Valerie Couch, after he went missing. The page has raised more than $1000 from people offering reward money to find Spam. Couch says they will either return the money or donate it to the APL, whichever those who contributed the money prefer.
