A jury in North Charleston ruled on August 10th, that the dog mauling of a 2-year-old boy in North Charleston was an accident, and there was no foul play at hand.
Ja’Marr Tiller, the 2-year-old victim was a resident of Mt. Pleasant, a subsidiary of Charleston, S.C. The special jury was asked to determine if anyone should be held liable for the death od the little boy.
There was a major discrepancy in what the animal control officers were claiming, versus what the autopsy report discovered which led to the special jury being instructed the aforementioned.
According to the animal control officer, the dogs in question were timid, and upon capture, no sign of human blood was found in their teeth or hair. The vet offered a secondary statement, agreeing with animal control that the attack did not involve the dogs in question.
However, to the contrary, the autopsy report established that the child was in fact killed by the dogs, as the 193 wounds that were on the child’s body matched the teeth marks of the 2 dogs that were found on the scene on May 27, 2012.
The child’s body was found by his mother, after the mother returned from running errands. It is assumed that the child walked outside through the unlocked door of his home, right into the peril that killed him.
