Murderer’s dog spotted wandering around with blood dripping from its face
A convicted murderer’s dog has been spotted wandering around town with what appears to be blood dripping from its mouth.
The pet, named Snoop, was found outside Kingswood Academy in Hull, East Yorkshire, on Thursday afternoon.
Its owner, Cole Jarvis, 22, had been jailed less than a week previously after he was convicted of murdering 17-year-old Connor Lyons, Hull Live reports.
Hull Crown Court heard how the 22-year-old had strangled on and off friend Connor and dumped his dead or dying body in the River Hull in January this year.
He was told he would serve a minimum of 24 years before being considered for release.
Members of the public appealed for the owners after finding Snoop with blood dripping from his mouth and a cut to his back leg, although it is still unclear where the wounds came from.
Snoop was later picked up by the dog's current owners, believed to be Jarvis' family.
It comes after Hull Live reported how Jarvis' fiancée caused fury when she posted on social media following his sentencing referencing lyrics from singer Jesy Nelson's single, 'Boyz'.

The woman, who is engaged to the convicted killer, referenced the song which sings about "liking bad boys" in a post on her Facebook profile, writing: "The hold that you got on me should be criminal".
She had also posted in September wishing Jarvis a "happy birthday", promising to wait for his release.
Jarvis was found guilty of murdering Connor Lyons in September and was jailed on November 12 to a life sentence with a minimum of 24 years and 73 days.
