According to an autopsy Melvin Olds Jr., 45 of Florida was killed by Pitbull dogs on Independence Day.
The father of five was found dead in a wooded area behind a home south of Lake Placid.
Highlands County Sheriff’s Office believe a pack of stray dogs could have been responsible for his death.
Olds had more than 100 bite marks on his body
Setting up traps in the area the Sheriffs captured the six Pitbull’s and their bite sizes match Olds’ injuries but the official determination on their involvement is pending DNA testing.
Olds’ fiance, Jannell Ward, has seen a pack of dogs hanging out in their neighborhood.
“They growled a couple times but they never ran up to me. They never came at me or insinuated that they were going to bite me. I never got that feeling,” she said.
“When dogs get in packs, you never know what’s going to happen,” said Lt. Clay Kinslow, with Highlands County Sheriff’s Office.
