Authorities began investigating David Eason on May 1 after Teen Mom 2 Star Jenelle Evans called the police to report that her husband had killed their dog, Nugget, after he bit the face of their two-year-old daughter. She said she did not see the shooting herself. As a result of this incident, Evans temporarily lost custody of his children and was eventually removed from the network.
On Thursday, according to pop culture, the Columbus County Sheriff's Office said that Eston would not be charged after the MPs found no evidence of Nugget's murder. There were no weapons, no blood, or "other evidence to confirm that a dog was shot and killed at home," reported PEOPLE. After the search, Evans changed his story in a manner that was not consistent with his previous accusations. According to the authorities, the reality TV star admitted to having manufactured the whole event for advertising purposes.
"Jenelle said that she" did not know where the dog was. "She also said that" I do not know if she was shot or killed, "the sheriff's office said in a statement. Jenelle stated that the reason she wrote the animal cruelty report was for advertising and the fact that she did not know where her dog was. "
Why would Jenelle Evans and David Eason lie about Nugget's death?
After Evans told his original story about Eason's murder of Nugget, Eason posted on Instagram to defend his actions:
"You can hate anything you want," he writes. "But this is not the first time the dog has been aggressively biting Ensley. The only person who can judge the weather or not of an animal is a danger to MY CHILD, that is ME. "
His account has since been deleted.
Evans also posted on her social accounts detailing how much she was sorry after Nugget's death.
Just last week, Evans answered a question from Instagrammer about his decision to stay with Eason after the "dog incident."
"Honestly, yes, we've been in bad shape for almost a week," she said. "I did not talk much. He knows how much it has upset me. Now that we are overcoming this incident, our relationship has become much stronger. David has also completed anger management. "
If the murder of Nugget was a lie, the couple certainly went to great lengths to make it look true. But why would they have made a story that would cost them custody of their children and their main source of income: Teen mom?
