DA: Investigation against Frazier ongoing

The criminal case involving former Boulder City Animal Control supervisor Mary Jo Frazier is in a holding pattern as the district attorney’s office investigates the matter further.

Additional investigation is required after the case was sent to District Attorney Steven Wolfson’s office by Boulder City Police Department, according to Wolfson.

“This is a case that is receiving a significant amount of priority in the office here,” he said. “It does require a lot more investigation, and it all depends on how long it takes for us to accomplish the various items of investigation.”

Wolfson said that now that the holidays are over they will be proceeding to move this case forward. He said he is considering charging Frazier with needlessly killing dozens of animals, including 91 animals in the last year alone.

Boulder City Police Department requested Frazier be charged with 37 felony counts of animal cruelty.
