A 19-year-old Mississippi woman, Denise Frazier, has been arrested after a viral video on social media allegedly showed her having sexual intercourse with a dog.
One of the dogs is a German shepherd that Frazier referred to as a ‘service dog.’
A concerned resident flagged the video from February to local authorities and she was eventually arrested on aggravated cruelty charges.
She could face up to ten years in a prison cell.
According to reports, Frazier was caught on a video that had spread around via Snapchat depicting her engaging in sex with the male canine.
Frazier did admit that she was the one engaging in sexual intercourse with an animal in the video.
“In my 17 years in law enforcement, this is one of the most disturbing cases that I’ve ever investigated,’ said Sergeant JD Carter of the Jones County Sheriff’s Department.
“JCSD is in possession of several videos that are so graphic that we are not at liberty to release them or even discuss the particular content,” he added. “The investigation into this case is far from over.”
Carter says that Frazier’s alibi was that she was forced into committing the heinous acts but says there’s no evidence of that though they are investigating.
She allegedly told police she was “threatened to do it” and also that “people pay [her]” for the videos, according to the Laurel Leader-Call.
“We’ve never dealt with this particular type of case before,” Carter said. “There are really no true words to describe it other than disgusting.”
“So, right now, we’re still in that initial phase, right past the first part of it. But, we’re still going to look into it to see if there’s more.”
He says there may be more videos filmed in other counties. They have alerted nearby sheriff’s departments.
The dogs were seized from the residence she was arrested at and taken to a local animal hospital.
Frazier has been booked into the Jones County Adult Detention Facility on charges of animal cruelty and unnatural intercourse.
She made her first appearance in court Thursday and had her bond set at $25,000.
The woman has also been ordered by a judge to stay away from animals until after her trial, according to WDAM.
While animal cruelty in Mississippi is penalized with up to six months in prison and a fine, unnatural intercourse could see Frazier jailed for up to ten years.
