K9 Lina died of heat exhaustion after having been accidentally left in her handler's patrol car.

Her handler had arrived home at the end of their normal shift but was almost immediately called back out to assist a narcotics task force with a drug case. By the time they arrived home again her handler had been on duty for 28 hours. Believing he had placed Lina in her kennel, he went to sleep. He later realized that Lina was still in the patrol car and discovered that she had died.

Lina had served with the Madison County Sheriff's Office for two years as a narcotics detection and tracking dog.
