FAIRVIEW, TN - More possible cases of horse mutilations in Williamson County has people in the area on edge.
 
Fox 17 has learned of two more horses with unexplained injuries, one of them reportedly died.
 
Now, people are upset with the Sheriff's Office.

Just two and a half months after a horse in Fairview was found dead with suspicious injuries, the case is now closed by the Williamson County Sheriff's Office.
   
But some residents say that's sending a strong message they're not comfortable with.

Neighbors have no doubt foul play is involved.
   
A report by Detective Temeka Sanders goes into detail about the investigation, which includes input from the Tennessee Equine Hospital, Bomber's Veterinarian, and a forensic pathologist at the state lab.

Less than a month after the case opened, it was determined there's no evidence to support anyone killed Bomber.

Bomber's owner, Terry MacIlvain, claims surveillance cameras they had in place that November night didn't take pictures of Bomber as usual, as though they were covered up.

He also claims patches of removed skin were geometrical and identical on both sides of Bomber's rump, along with a missing piece of his ear.

Since our original story aired in November, MacIlvain says he's learned of two other incidents he says are similar to this in the Fernvale area.

Another horse was reportedly killed, the other one survived.

These are incidents that the sheriff's office tells us were never reported.

Those in the area have been meeting, trying to raise more money for a reward for information.
