From the Paper:

"This is the official casebook of Department of Justice (DOJ) Case No. DOJ104523. The briefing of the case is as follows here. On July 20, 2008, a man, Mark J., and his wife, Marcella J., became the victims of a gangland style murder. The J.'s family pet, a male brindle boxer weighing 75 pounds, was shot. Apparently the animal went into a defensive mode when the assailants broke into the home and began their assault on the couple. The dog had a lot of blood on his head, and there was an actively flowing wound in his side. The crime scene was established by police officers after being called to the scene by neighbors who reported gunshots at the site. Police detectives were called to the scene where they preformed an investigation of the crime scene, supervised forensic evidence collection, and the coroner's removal of the bodies."
