Spam was taken to the Animal Protective League for an autopsy as police continue to investigate.

A GoFundMe page was started by Spam's owner, Valerie Couch, after he went missing. The page has raised more than $1,000 from people offering reward money to find Spam. Couch says they will either return the money or donate it to the APL, whichever those who contributed the money prefer.
