Police have confirmed that a California housekeeper was killed by at least one dog at the home of her employer.
Remedios Romero-Solares, 30, was found dead on November 11, at a home in Fallbrook which is in San Diego County. She was working in the home while its residents were out of town. Police believe the dogs mauled her when she arrived to take care of them.
Romero-Solares had been dropped off by a relative. Her body was discovered when the relative arrived to pick her up the following day. Police say her bloody body was found in the backyard.
About eight dogs, later determined to be Olde English Bulldogge-American Bulldog mixes, were also in the yard, running loose. They ranged in age from 4-5 months to 2-3 years, and weighed from 70 to 105 pounds. The owner was said to be breeding the dogs for sale.
Police say at least one of the dogs mauled the victim. The dogs were seized by the San Diego County Department of Animal Services.
When checking for any additional victims in the home, the County Sheriff’s Department discovered 24 marijuana plants growing in one of the bedrooms.
According to Opposing Views, police say no force was needed to remove the dogs from the home, though authorities said, “the one or ones that are found to have attacked the victim will be deemed non-adoptable and euthanized. We have to ensure the safety of the public.”
The owners have no been identified and police have yet to file any criminal charges against them.
