Mt. Pleasant, SC-- A two year-old is dead after being attacked by dogs, according to deputies in South Carolina.
The attack happened Sunday night 8:30pm. Dispatchers said they received a 911 call about a 2-year-old who was attacked by dogs at a home in the 2700 Block of Highway 17 North, near Highway 41.
Monday afternoon the Sheriff's Department said the autopsy results were inconclusive. Sheriff Al Cannon and Coroner Rae Wooten provided some details on what the sheriff called "an extremely tragic situation."
Coroner Wooten said Tiller died from blunt and sharp trauma injuries but also said the autopsy didn't provide all the answers.
Sheriff Cannon added that animal-bite experts will be called in to determine specifics of the wounds, as investigators have not learned which, or if, the two dogs seized were responsible for the child's death.
The coroner said there was no way to know how long the attack lasted.
Cannon said it's possible another dog may have been involved and that investigators do not know how the Tiller was able to leave his room and get out of the house.
The sheriff also said there were five people inside the home at the time of the incident, before adding that deputies were called to the home several years ago for another dog attack.
The victim's aunt, Octavia Johnson told CBS Station WCSC that 2-year-old Ja'Marr Tiller had been put to bed for the night. She said he wandered outside and was attacked by the dogs behind the house.
The mother was not home at the time of the incident, but came home and found his clothes that had been ripped off his body, according to the Aunt.
The dogs, a female black labrador-shepherd mix and a female brindle labrador-shepherd mix, were taken from the home by Charleston County Animal Control.
