A Mississippi teen criminally charged for having sex with a German shepherd was seen on video around other dogs and shot at least one of the disturbing clips at a local church.
Earlier this week, 19-year-old Denise Frazier was arrested after a video surfaced of her allegedly engaging in bestiality with the German shepherd, as CrimeOnline previously reports. Police now say they have identified at least three different dogs in multiple recordings, although it is not clear whether all the dogs were victimized.
“In my 17 years in law enforcement, this is one of the most disturbing cases that I’ve ever investigated,” Jones County Sheriff’s Sergeant J.D. Carter told WDAM-TV. “JCSD is in possession of several videos that are so graphic that we are not at liberty to release them or even discuss the particular content.”
Frazier reportedly admitted that she was in the recordings engaging in sexual intercourse with the German shepherd, but she alleged that she was forced into the sex act. Frazier was with two men when she was arrested, but authorities say so far there is no evidence supporting her assertion that she was coerced.
In an interview with police, Frazier allegedly said that she was “threatened to do it” and that “people pay” for the recordings, the Laurel Leader-Call reports.

Investigators believe one of the clips was recorded in the parking lot of Freedom Baptist Church in Myrick, Mississippi. Screenshots of the videos indicate that the recordings were made between February 23 and 28.
All three dogs are being treated at an animal hospital, WDAM-TV reports.
“We’ve never dealt with this particular type of case before,” Carter told the television station. “There are really no true words to describe it other than disgusting.”
Frazier is facing charges of animal cruelty and unnatural intercourse; she was in court Thursday and her bond was set to $25,000. A judge ordered her to stay away from animals until at least her trial.
Days before her arrest, Frazier was reportedly photographed with a German shepherd after she crashed a vehicle in Myrick last Sunday, according to the Daily Mail. Frazier is said to refer to the German shepherd as a “service dog,” the Leader-Call reports.
Conviction on the animal cruelty charge carries a jail sentence of up to six months and a fine, while conviction of the unnatural intercourse charge could result in a prison sentence up to 10 years.
