Tallassee Child Killed In Dog Attack Name Identified
From Tallassee -- we now know the name of the little girl killed in a dog attack. 4-year-old, Summer Sears, was killed while playing in her grandfather's unfenced backyard.
After Summer's grandfather had not heard from her for about 30 minutes, he saw a white dog dragging her. We spoke with friends of the family who say they're totally distraught that this has happened...
Tears run down Janet Conn's face as she looks at the scene where 4-year-old Summer was attacked by at least one dog, maybe two. Police say the dogs belong to a neighbor.
He says animal control has taken two dogs. While one dog was seen dragging Summer, police still don't know if the other dog was involved.
The police chief says a neighbor owns the dogs that were taken in. He says the owner could be charged pending the investigation.
Summer's body has been sent to forensic sciences. Investigators hope to have results soon on whether the dogs they have, are the ones that killed her.
