United Airlines is now under the microscope in a third state, as law enforcement in NY take a closer look at how that French bulldog died in an overhead compartment … TMZ has learned.
A rep for the Queens District Attorney’s Office tells us they’re now looking into the matter and currently reviewing the facts to determine if there is a prosecutable case in their jurisdiction. The United flight where Kokito died … took off from Houston and landed at LaGuardia Airport, in Queens County.
As we reported … the Harris County, Texas D.A. has launched its own investigation, which is in the hands of a police animal cruelty task force.
In addition, Illinois is home to United’s headquarters … so that state would have jurisdiction if and when Kokito’s owners file a civil lawsuit.
