It's been one month since his dogs were shot and left alongside the CSX train tracks in Whitestown, but Sam Abbott is still hoping for justice.

"I'm definitely ready for that moment," Abbott said. "I'm not going to promise you how I'm going to react, but I want an answer to why and I hope that they give them some kind of a decent punishment."

Recently, a reward was been offered by the Uvanni brothers and Whitestown Police for any information into the dogs' deaths. Abbott says he's grateful for the kindness of others who have assisted him in putting an end to the case.

"My thing is that probably some people are saying, 'It's none of my business,' or 'I don't really know anything.'" Abbott said. "But, when half of these people who say it isn't their business start smelling money, then they'll make it their business."

For him, closure is all he's looking for and if a reward is what it's going to take to get it, that's okay.

"Those two dogs were so lovable, they didn't deserve to die that way," Abbott said. "They were the two most loving creatures you'd want to see in your life."

Anyone with information is urged to call Whitestown Police at (315) 736-1100.
