Chesco SPCA: ‘macabre’ discovery of dog remains in Coatesville home

    When gold-leafed dog bones are among the discoveries at a crime scene, you know you have your work cut out for you.

    Police in Coatesville have two people in custody and continue to investigate the circumstances that brought Chester County SPCA officials to a home last night where authorities found a half-dozen dismembered dogs.

    Action News reports there were dog heads on the counter, a skeleton in the freezer and another dipped in gold. Also found at the scene was a collection of knives and machetes.
