Armand M. Pelletier, 34, and his wife Lorraine T. Pelletier, 33, live in Frenchville, Aroostook County, Maine, United States. They do not have children but they have a Siberian Husky named Paca, which was born in 1975.
At around 10:00 a.m. on December 7, 1985, Armand found a dead baby girl near his house on Bouchard Roach in Frenchville. He called police and told them the body had not been there at 8:00 a.m.
It is believed that Paca dragged the body about 700 feet from a gravel pit to Armand and Lorraine’s house. Police dogs later led investigators to a gravel pit access road where they found a considerable amount of blood and a placenta.
The baby was full-term. Investigators believe she was born in the gravel pit driveway and was left there to die in below-zero temperature.
Earlier that day, a young couple was seen in Madawaska, Aroostook County. The Madawaska Police Department and the Maine State Police are looking for information on the couple.
Siberian Huskies are bred by the Chukchi people of Siberia for sled pulling and companionship. The medium-sized working sled dog breed belongs to the Spitz genetic family.
During the Nome Gold Rush from 1899 to 1909, Russian fur trader William Goosak introduced Siberian Huskies to Nome, Alaska, USA as sled dogs. Siberian Huskies are smaller than Alaskan Malamutes but they look similar.
