Police In Ohio Find Dismembered Body Eaten By Dogs

Liberty, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities in Ohio say they found a dismembered body inside a house with three dogs, which had been eating the remains.

A dog warden says body parts were "all over the place."

Liberty Towship police chief Richard Tisone says the dogs were vicious and kept officers from entering the home Tuesday evening, so they had to shoot two of the animals.

Tisone says police had gone to the house outside Youngstown in northeast Ohio after neighbors reported they hadn't seen the man who lived there for weeks.

A coroner is trying to reconstruct the body and is using dental records to make an identification.

The police chief says how the victim died is unclear.

Police shot a rottweiler and another large dog. The third, a pit bull mix, was captured.

    They try to capture dogs before they just shoot them! Geez! APPARENTLY, one of the dogs cooperated, two didn't. So they "Should've" done exactly what they did! Why are you concerned with the dogs? This isn't an animal report... It's about a dead MAN!

    why was one mutt allowed to live. it should of been shot along with the other two. people use to have common sense about such things, if an animal attacks a human they should be put down, no questions if's and's or but's.
