Lúkas, the dog, found alive

The pure bread Chinese Crested dog Lúkas from Akureyri, which has been missing since May and was supposedly brutally killed last month, was found alive outside the town yesterday. According to police, the owner has confirmed its identity.

A witness claimed to have seen a group of boys put the dog into a sports bag during so-called Car Days in Akureyri June 15 to 17 and kick it around until it stopped barking. Lúkas’ body was never discovered, but the owner, Kristjana Margrét Svansdóttir, demanded a police investigation into its death, Morgunbladid reports.

The blogger community hyped up the story and one of the alleged dog killers was named. He received death threats from angry bloggers. “I can’t desccribe with words how I feel now,” said Helgi Rafn Brynjarsson, the alleged dog killer, who has been in hiding for the last few weeks.

“I’m looking forward to next weekend, to be able to have fun downtown,” Brynjarsson said, adding he does not know why his name came up in relation to this case. Brynjarsson said he plans to consult a lawyer in regards to a potential lawsuit.
