UPDATED WITH TMZ INTERVIEW. Jenelle Evans can’t keep her story straight.
Why the hell does Jenelle Evans keep giving interviews about this? Pick a lie at LEAST!
Jenelle Evans now claims that David didn’t really kill her dog, Nugget. The best way to even begin to cover this is by just using my purple pen on this rather lengthy official statement by local police and animal control.
On May 1, 2019, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office and Columbus County Animal Control initiated a joint investigation into allegations of animal cruelty that reportedly occurred at a residence on Money Hole Road in Riegelwood. Jenelle Eason contacted Columbus County Sheriff’s Office by public service.
So, Jenelle Evans immediately report the situation to the police.
Eason advised that on April 29th, at approximately 6:30 pm, her dog bit her daughter, leaving a scratch on her face. Eason advised that her husband, David Eason, threw the dog outside. She then advised that after David realized that the dog scratched their child, he went outside and shot the dog. During this conversation, Jenelle stated that she did hear a gunshot but did not witness the incident.
What happened to the body?
On May 1, 2019, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office visited David Eason at his residence on Money Hole Road. The responding deputy was following up on a previous welfare check request on a child at that residence. While at the residence, the deputy also communicated with Eason in reference to the animal cruelty allegations. The deputy witnessed a juvenile at the residence that appeared to be in good health.
Then Nathan sent the police to check on Kaiser. He seemed fine.
A Columbus County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigator attempted to make contact with Jenelle by visiting her at her residence. The investigator was unable to make contact with her in person. A message was left on her voicemail. David reached out to the investigator and advised that he and Jenelle were meeting with their attorney at the end of the week. The investigator attempted to contact Jenelle on the day they reportedly met with their attorney. However, again, she did not answer the phone.
If you didn’t kill the dog, why does Jenelle Evans need and attorney?
During the evening hours of May 13th, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at the Eason residence located on Money Hole Road. The Eason’s did not have prior notice of the search. The Columbus County Department of Social Services accompanied the Sheriff’s Office to serve four custody orders. At the initiation of the search, no one was home. Contact was made with David and he advised he would arrive shortly. Upon arrival, David willfully signed a consent to search form.
I am shocked that David Eason signed a consent to search. He’s usually more threatening. Of course the dog has been dead for two weeks. During this time Jenelle Evans and David did a lot of “gardening.”
Columbus County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search of the residence and property. No weapons were located inside of the residence or on the property.
WAIT WHAT? What did he do with his arsenal of weapons?
Investigators processed the residence and the property, locating no blood evidence or any other physical evidence to validate that an animal had been fatally injured on the property. Jenelle was not present during the search.
Where did he stash Jenelle?
On May 14th, Jenelle and David were at the Columbus County Department of Social Services in reference to their children. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigators met with Jenelle in reference to the allegations she reported. David was not present during this meeting. Jenelle was questioned concerning the incident she reported to Columbus County Sheriff’s Office. Jenelle’s accounts were inconsistent with her original account of the events that occurred on April 29th.
Jenelle Evans Changes Her Story
Jenelle advised that she was inside with her children at the time of the alleged event. She advised that she never heard or saw anything to indicate that David shot her dog. Jenelle advised that she did not want the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office or the District Attorney’s Office to continue with the investigation. Jenelle advised that this was her decision that she made on her own free will. She advised that she was not coerced into making this decision.
Jenelle Evans Takes The Blame, Claims It Was A Publicity Stunt
Jenelle advised that “she don’t know where the dog is”. She also advised that “I don’t know if she was shot or killed or not”. Jenelle stated that the reason she filed the animal cruelty report was for the publicity and because she did not know where her dog was. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigators located no physical evidence to substantiate that the allegations against David Eason are factual. The evidence collected indicates that the allegations of animal cruelty were fabricated.Therefore, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office is closing this investigation. No charges will be filed in this case.
Columbus County Sheriff’s Office has dedicated many hours investigating the reported allegations. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, along with Columbus Central, the District Attorney’s Office, Columbus County Department of Social Services and Columbus County Animal Control were inundated with phone calls and emails concerning this investigation due to social media posts advising the public to contact the above agencies.
Wait, So They Believe Jenelle Evans?
The quantity of calls and emails that the Sheriff’s Office and the above agencies received were so abundant that individuals had to be removed from their normal duties to answer thousands of redundant calls. This slowed the progress of the investigation, and delayed normal daily operations.
Social media can be a great tool when utilized for positive interactions. In this case, social media posts were utilized to incite follower’s emotions to gain publicity. Sheriff Greene and Columbus County Sheriff’s Office were quoted in numerous social media posts. However, the “quoted” statements were never made by Sheriff Greene or Columbus County Sheriff’s Office. We must remember that reality television and tabloid journalism are for entertainment purposes only.
Is it me or are they blaming social media and concerned citizens rather than Jenelle and David?
Is This Social Media’s Fault Too?
In a separate incident, on May 15, 2019, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the Eason residence. The Eason’s received an envelope in the mail, hand addressed from the Brunswick County Clerk. When David Eason began opening the envelope, a white powder substance fell out of the envelope. The substance was tested and did not test positive for narcotics or other harmful substances. This investigation has been closed. All leads in this case have been exhausted.
In the mean time, Jenelle’s Instagram is full of photos of happy kids at the beach, and in the pool, and at the lake. And The Land has gotten dozens of chickens and ducks and other animals. She also posted a story where Nathan’s sister allegedly said that Jenelle is a good mother.
