Estimated 200 Dogs Found In Filthy Conditions At Puppy Mill When Police Investigated A Murder

Published: March 03, 2021 at 07:22 AM Author: Penny Eims

Stephens County, Oklahoma – An estimated 200 dogs were discovered at a Stephens County, Oklahoma, residence when police went to the home in mid-February to investigate a murder. Evidence at the home led Stephen’s County Sheriff’s Office deputies to arrest 49-year-old Karen Jean Prichard on suspicion of second-degree murder, and dismal conditions at her Marlow property prompted further investigation resulting in 113 counts of cruelty to animals.

As reported by the Marlow Review, deputies described conditions at the property as “deplorable.” The Humane Society of Tulsa, which took in many of the dogs and puppies, stated, “Dogs were living in horrific conditions without basic needs. They have multiple medical issues that need immediate care.”

This woman is also accused of murdering 31-year-old Ashley Nicole Anderson, whose body was found in a metal shipping container that was secured with a pad lock. Officers found the woman wrapped in a blue tarp which was secured with a rope, reports Yahoo News.

We need your support to help convince court officials that she deserves the maximum sentence for all of the charges that she is facing. Karen Jean Prichard must be put behind bars for as long as possible, AND be forbidden from owning any pets in the future!

Dogs found at Karen Jean Prichard’s property were stuck in filthy cages. Stephens County Humane Society board members told a local news agency that the conditions were “rancid.” Board member Kelly Nelson said, “It was the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life. We were called by the sheriff’s department because of the number of animals and because they had no water, no food and no shelter.”

People who run puppy mills do it for the love of money and the welfare of the animals generating that money are of no concern. The amount of suffering this woman caused is staggering, and she needs to pay for the harm that she has inflicted!

Please add your name to the petition today. Karen Jean Prichard deserves the maximum sentence for her charges and a plea deal should not be considered!
