I've taken some time to collect my thoughts on this subject matter, and it's very heartbreaking to say that Blitz has been stolen from my home last Sunday. While out of town, Blitz was being taken care of by a close friend at my house and someone broke in and took him. Whomever stole Blitz has contacted my phone numerous times, demanding ransom money. I strongly advise you to stop and return my boy safely before it gets any worse! If you know of any details regarding Blitz's whereabouts or who may be involved in this, please contact me immediately. 💔 #repost
Here's more from Mike Chiari at the Bleacher Report:
In an interview with KXAS-TV in Dallas (h/t ESPN.com), Whitehead said he received a call from an unknown number demanding $10,000 for the return of Blitz.
Whitehead said he agreed to pay an undisclosed amount if the alleged perpetrator could prove his dog was OK.
Whitehead added that he believed the situation was an "inside job," that he didn't care about other items stolen and just wanted his dog back:
Anything with Boogotti Kasino in it has to be the dumbest person in sports. Or maybe it's me for giving him the attention he wanted. Oh well. Enjoy your 15 minutes Boogotti.
