More answers in the hot car death of a sheriff’s K-9 deputy

DUPLIN COUNTY, NC (WCTI.com) — We continue to ask questions in the case of a Duplin County Sheriff's K-9 deputy that died after allegedly being left inside a hot patrol car for about 24 hours.

Now many more facts and many more questions are coming to light. "Kela," a 9-year-old Belgian Malinois, died last month, said Duplin County Sheriff Blake Wallace. She had been with her handler, Deputy Kevin Williams, for four-and-a-half years. We called Duplin County Manager Mike Aldridge to check on the status of this case. Aldridge said he had been told the county attorney was going to turn the case over to the State Bureau of Investigation. 

After three failed attempts at reaching the county attorney, we contacted the SBI directly. SBI officials said the case had not been forwarded to them.
