Detectives searched a Hollywood home Tuesday for any clues that could lead them to the person or people who stabbed Ollie, the pit bull, and left him for dead in a suitcase last month.

Miranda Grossman, a Hollywood police spokeswoman, confirmed that police executed a search warrant in the 1900 block of Lee Street Tuesday.

As of Tuesday evening, Grossman said no one was in custody.

It was not clear what led detectives to that home.

On Oct. 10, Hollywood police responded to a report of a suitcase left behind an abandoned building and found the pit bull they later named Ollie.

Ollie, who had more than 50 stab wounds, was shoved inside a blue suitcase and left behind a building at 1945 Lee St.

The dog was taken to VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital, where he later died.

Grateful Paws Dog & Cat Rescue, a nonprofit rescue organization, set up a GoFundMe account for Ollie’s care and people from all over the world chipped in.

Hollywood police said late last month that detectives had been assigned to Ollie’s case. The reward for information leading to Ollie’s killer was $35,000.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hollywood Police Department’s Detective Bureau at 954-967-4411 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
