MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - Results have been released following a Marietta Police Department Therapy Dog’s death in July.

Marietta Police Chief Katherine Warden said that a necropsy, which is a dog autopsy, reveled that K-9 River passed due to a virus that she contracted while at an independent boarding facility.

River was less than a year old when she passed. Prior to her death, she was a therapy dog and went to schools with her handler patrol officer Rob Sury to provide students relief from stress.
