A 52-year-old woman and his 27-year-old son were found dead in their home in Hanover, German authorities reported Wednesday that the killer is actually their own dog an American Staffordshire Terrier.
The circumstances of this sad tragedy remain still a mystery.
It was the daughter and sister of the victims who alerted the authorities. Having failed to contact the victims via her phone, she went directly to their house. There, by the window, she saw a body laying on the floor, which instantly made her call out for help. However, when they arrived around 10 p.m that night, they did not only find one body but two: her mother and her brother.
The poor girl couldn’t enter the house fearing the dog that the firefighters were first forced to catch with a collar in order for them to go further.
According to the forensic doctor’s first observations, the dog appears to have killed the mother and her son without giving further details. Why? Or How? They did not give more details at this stage. The animal though was taken to a suitable place, before a possible euthanasia.
This type of dog is subject to very strict regulations in Germany. Whom ever want to raise and have this dog should get a special license. And to get this certificate it requires several theoretical and practical tests which obviously this young man didn’t have.
