Autopsy today for baby killed by dog | Dayton, OH Crime |


Autopsy results are expected to be released today on a baby killed by a dog Sunday in Dayton.

The 7-month-old baby boy was reportedly attacked and killed inside a home in the 2200 block of Riverside Drive around 12:24 p.m. yesterday.

Police responded to the scene after a neighbor called 911 in a desperate effort to get help.

“She just knocked on my door, bangin’ on my door, She had a baby in her hand. The baby’s not breathing. You need to get here now.,” the neighbor told the dispatcher.

The police supervisor on scene said it’s unclear why it happened, but the infant’s stepgrandmother was watching the child for the day and her dog attacked and killed the baby.

Records at the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center show an American Staffordshire Terrier, which resembles a pit bull, is registered at the address.

The baby is from out of state, according to the Montgomery County coroner’s investigator. The child’s name has not been released.

The dog was removed by an animal control officer. Homicide detectives were called to investigate.

About a dozen people who appeared to be close friends and family of the stepgrandmother arrived at the two-story home as detectives conducted the investigation.

A range of emotions were displayed, as some hugged and comforted each other while crying and others screamed in anger or frustration.

The grandmother, who police said is not biologically related to the child, was in extreme emotional distress and was assisted to walk.

According to a June 3 Dayton police report, the same dog attacked a beagle that was on a leash as its owner was walking by the Riverside Drive house.

The beagle suffered bites to its leg before it got away. The owner told police she didn’t want to press charges against the attacking dog’s owner, but wanted the incident documented.
