Firefighters found the body of the Doberman-Labrador-pit bull mix on railroad tracks.
The owners of the dog named Crom are devastated. Tim Filer and Michelle Nelson told KOMO-TV that the dog ran out of the house several weeks ago in pursuit of a cat. They say they've looked for him ever since.
Firefighters later found the dog's head, with his collar still around his neck.
Centralia police say they're convinced a train did not run over the dog. They say they have few leads.
