Some sick creep is holding Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead's dog for ransom

Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead house broken into dog held for ransom

Dallas Cowboys receiver Lucky Whitehead took to social media Sunday to announce help in reacquiring his dog Blitz, who was recently stolen and his being held for ransom.

Lucky Whitehead's dog, Blitz, has been stolen.

On Sunday, Whitehead found himself in a awful situation when it was discovered that Blitz was stolen. Whitehead posted, along with a video of his dog. But he said he hasn't heard from them since then, and police told him that the calls came from an untraceable "burner" phone. "I wasn't here to protect him", Whitehead said of Blitz. Whitehead says he suspects the heist was "an inside job" and plans to talk to some people close to him.

Whitehead has not commented on who stole his dog or how much he paid to get it back.

Whitehead, who signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic in 2015, has nine receptions for 64 yards in 30 games played over the past two seasons.

Whitehead said he refused to pay the $10,000, but told the thieves he would give them "some cash", which they indicated they would accept. In one of the videos, Kasino demanded $20,000 for the return of Blitz while also calling out several other Cowboys such as wideout Dez Bryant and owner Jerry Jones.

The 25-year-old Whitehead tried to get detectives on the case, but they were unable to trace the dognappers' phones. Blitz was safely returned last night, but not before falling into the hands of a local rapper named Boogotti Kasino, who vehemently denies having stolen Blitz. "It's killing me. It hurts because I don't know how he's being treated. I just want the dog back", Whitehead said.
