A Florida man kidnapped a scientist and threatened not to free him unless he makes his dog inmortal. The man, identified as Philip Josef, claims he loves his dog too much, and he can’t let it die, so he needed to make his dog inmortal. He kidnapped Ryan Lockhart, a doctor and scientist from the University of South Florida, and kept him shut up in a room, until he found a solution.
Josef was eventually found by the police after Ryan’s family noticed he was missing and started an investigation. According to the police, Jose won’t face any charges because although he made a mistake, it could have happened to any of us.
“I just get anxious when I think my dog is going to die some day. He’s all I have, I can’t let him die”, Josef said to our reporter Gary Cockburn.
The scientist agreed to investigate, along with other scientists, how to make Josef’s dog inmortal. They don’t expect to achieve it, but they’re going to do their best.
