Canton man and his dog murdered

CANTON, OH (WOIO) - Police need your help to track down the person who shot and killed 32-year-old Kristopher Mayle in his home, and also killed Mayle's dog.

It happened on Ohio Avenue in what is typically a quiet neighborhood in Canton.

Mayle was discovered inside his home by a family member early Sunday morning.

Right now Canton Police do not have a description of a gunman. Whoever committed this crime also killed Mayle's beloved dog "King."

Mayle played in a softball league and was engaged to be married.

His family is asking for privacy, but say they may comment at a later date. A GoFundMe page has been set up for funeral expenses.

If you have any information that could help, contact the Canton Police Department at (330) 489-3100.
