Back in April, Jenelle Evan’s awful husband David Eason bragged on social media about killing the family dog, Nugget, after Nugget allegedly nipped at their 2-year-old daughter Ensley. Jenelle then uploaded a post about how #heartbroken and #distraught she was that David shot the dog. Now according to TMZ, Jenelle claims she told cops that she made the whole dog-killed-by-gun-nut-husband story up for publicity.
Columbus County Sheriffs got involved and were investigating the situation that caused CPS to temporarily take their kids away. TMZ says that no charges will be filed against David, because Jenelle’s story changed halfway through the investigation. When police first questioned Jenelle, she reportedly told officers that David took Nugget outside, and that’s when she heard a gunshot sound. She never saw the dog get shot, she just put two and two together, like how we all did at the end of Old Yeller.
Weeks later, Jenelle told them she never heard a gunshot and didn’t know what happened to the dog. This is after the story broke that David was allegedly a dog-murdering sack of shit, and MTV claimed they were filming no new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with Jenelle.
Jenelle then admitted that the story about Nugget getting shot and killed was a PR stunt. Jenelle also told investigators that she just wanted the whole situation to “go away.” TMZ thinks that maybe Jenelle made up the story about it being a PR stunt to get the cops to drop it.
However, Jenelle admitting that it was all made up might be the truth. Police sources say that a search of their property showed that no weapon was recovered, no blood was found, and there was no evidence that an animal died. So it looks like police took Jenelle at her word, and the investigation was closed. The Columbus County Sheriff’s Office adds that they won’t be charging Jenelle with filing a fake police report.
If Nugget wasn’t murdered, then where is the dog?!? Nugget hasn’t been seen since on Instagram since Jenelle’s sad death notice. He hasn’t appeared on David’s Instagram page, but that could be because David is too busy posting “Bae caught me slipping” photos with his favorite gun.
I don’t want to speculate what the truth here is, because I have a feeling the truth involves a dog murdering cover-up. But I hope Nugget packed a bag, called a cab, grabbed a gun and fired two shots into the family truck’s tires, and hissed “Don’t try to follow me, I’m too good for all of this.”
