Concluding a case more convoluted than an Agatha Christie novel and less cartoonish than an episode of Scooby-Doo, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead has been reunited with his allegedly kidnapped dog Blitz by a Fort Worth rapper named Boogotti Kasino.
I’d be lying if I said I understood everything going on here, but a quick summary is in order. Whitehead posted on Instagram over the weekend that his dog, while in the care of a friend, had been stolen. The kidnappers then left messages with Whitehead demanding a ransom for Blitz’s safe return, Whitehead alleges. On Monday night, Boogotti Kasino announced on social media that he was in possession of Blitz, while stressing that he had not stolen the dog. In fact, Boogotti Kasino said, he had paid $20,000 to an unnamed broker for Blitz, and simply wanted to be reimbursed for the expense. Boogotti Kasino also implied that the original theft had been an inside job.
After some further back-and-forth and several impassioned Instagram videos, the dog was returned to Whitehead at no financial cost. Hope that all makes sense. Maybe next someone can solve the mystery of an offensive player naming his dog Blitz.
Boogotti Kasino’s latest mixtape, Super Saiyan 3, is out July 28, he would like you to know.
