Five kids did not see family alsatian kill and eat mum in Nuneaton
IN ” FIVE KIDS SEE THEIR ALSATIAN KILL MUM”, the Sun’s Andrew Parker has news of “brave mum” Cassandra Smith, 49, “savaged to death by the family dog in front of her five children as she tried to stop it attacking them“.
The story, on page 9 of the Sun, tells of “petite Cassandra SMith” and the “frenzied alsatian“. The dog “went for her daughters” at the family home in Nuneaton.
Petite Cassandra Smith, 49, leapt in to fight off the frenzied Alsatian when it went for daughters Charlotte, 28, and Annette, 26. But the snarling animal flew at her and sank its jaws into her face and throat. Her five terrified kids — including Shelley, 25, Kayleigh, 21, and Jayson, 30 — looked on screaming in horror.
A neighbour called William Brown says he “found the three-year-old dog …’chewing her face'”.
What says Warwickshire Police?:
She had told a family member that she was feeling unwell the night before her body was found. At the current time there is no evidence to support rumours, circulating in the local community, that she died from injuries inflicted by the family dog.
A post mortem took place. Warwickshire police state:
