ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL (Boca Post) (Copyright © 2023) — 43-year-old Delmin Echeverria of Greenacres was arrested for killing an Acreage family’s dog.

PBSO detectives investigated the death of a family’s dog, a 3 and a half year old Pit Bull named Luna, who was murdered on Friday, September 22nd, 2023, in unincorporated Royal Palm Beach.

Detectives say that the dog died from an apparent puncture under her jaw. They believe the dog was enticed to come to the fence where it was then stabbed. Investigators say that the fence was also cut and they believe Echeverria may have pulled Luna through the fence.

The owner of the property immediately told detectives that he knew who committed the crime. The victim says that 43-year-old Delmin Echeverria is responsible.  The victim claims that Echeverria called him after the incident, from an private phone number, and said that he killed his dog. The victim said he recognized Delmin’s voice because has been harassing, and threatening, his family for some time.

He then told him that he killed his dog. The victim immediately went home to find that his dog has been killed.
