Michael Vick’s dog fighting operation, Bad Newz Kennels, is in the middle of another investigation.
Authorities are looking at a possible connection to another dog fighting ring, whose owner was murdered in April.
Roy “Bud” Melton was found shot to death on his property in North Carolina, which was used for his dog fighting operation. Thirty pit bulls and dog fighting equipment were seized from his home.
Documents and video tapes were also removed from the property. The documents list dog names that are consistent with Bad Newz Kennels.
Investigators are looking into connections between dogs Melton owned and dogs owned by Bad Newz Kennels. They said there is a strong possibility the two operations are linked.
The tapes were watched by federal investigators, and when asked, they said Vick was not on any of the tapes. When they were asked if Bad Newz Kennels were involved in the tapes, they said they couldn’t answer that question.
Court documents mentioned that Vick had bought and fought dogs in North Carolina, but there were no specific locations mentioned.
