A Lemon Grove community is grieving after an 8-month infant, Tyzhel Latella McWilliams, was mauled to death by a pit bull owned by a family friend.
“Because the incident involved the sudden or unexpected death of an infant, the sheriff’s homicide detail was requested and assumed the investigation,” Nesbit said.” 10 News, Los Angeles, 14 June 2012.
Animal controllers took three pit bull terriers owned by the mother’s roommate into custody. Two terriers were returned to the owner, while the attacking dog was euthanized.
Investigation into the incident is ongoing. No criminal charges have been filed as of yet.
