NYPD Hero Dog Dies

Scooby, the NYPD bloodhound who in 2007 helped find the men who shot and killed Officer Russel Timoshenko, 23, and wounded Officer Herman Yan, has died after suffering from an undisclosed illness. He was 10 - that's 70 in people years.

The North Carolina-bred bloodhound died slightly less than four years after what was perhaps his finest hour.

It was July 2007, and the NYPD was on the hunt for two violent thugs who had skipped town after shooting two cops. The NYPD officers had pulled them over in Crown Heights, Brooklyn for driving a stolen BMW. Officer Russel Timoshenko, 23, was shot in the face, and died a few days later. His partner, Officer Herman Yan, was wounded but survived.

The two suspects, Dexter Bostic and Robert Ellis escaped by getting a friend to drive them out of the city "but eventually got ditched near a highway in eastern Pennsylvania," and were seen at a rest area before they fled into the woods near the highway. Three hundred cops and six other police dogs were involved in the search. Bostic was caught quickly, and then Ellis at 8 a.m., with help from Scooby, a U.S. Marshal spotted Ellis sitting up against a tree, ending one of the biggest manhunts the Poconos had ever seen.
