The crime scene wasn’t pretty in this police officer’s home, after the Elf on the Shelf was found ripped apart. The main suspect happens to be the family dog.

We have the Elf on the Shelf in our house. It’s a love-hate relationship, as my son loves it and I hate it. I hate having to remember to move it and I feel grossly inadequate when people ingeniously create all kinds of fun scenarios for their elves and I’m lucky if I can even find mine every Christmas season.

But I have to give it to San Juan County, California sheriff candidate Shane Ferrari. He’s gone above and beyond in the Elf shenanigans and shared with his constituents on his Facebook page.

The post shared that their beloved Elf Holly Christmas had been murdered, and the evidence around the crime scene led the officer to believe that the family “Mutt” Josie Ferrari may have been the criminal responsible for what Ferrari described as horrific.

Seeing as the victim was found slain near the doggie door, which conveniently happens to be a regular hang out of the suspect’s, Ferrari decided to investigate “The Mutt’s” involvement a bit more. Josie ran, afraid he’d been found out, and after a foot chase was over, Josie was caught and is being charged with a trio of crimes: murder, tampering with the evidence, and fleeing the scene of the crime.

Ferrari said that he’s happy the suspect was apprehended so quickly, and then shared pictures, though it’s important to note that viewer discretion was advised due to the graphic details of the ‘crime.’

He may not be guaranteed a win for the Sheriff’s seat, but we can say that Ferrari sure is winning at this whole Elf mess!

We fully anticipate a campaign!
