YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — A humane agent says a puppy found beneath a northeast Ohio overpass died after being set on fire using an aerosol can that was found on top of the animal's remains.

Humane agent Kim Woodburn tells WFMJ-TV ( ) that youth walking a dog found the remains Tuesday beneath a highway overpass on the south side of Youngstown.

The station reports the remains were found in an area that has been used as a dumping site for animals, and investigators are trying figure out who is responsible for the dog's death.

Woodburn says the youth who found the burned remains also found a dead dog wrapped in a blanket in a different area, but the cases aren't believed to be related. The cause of the second dog's death is unknown.
