DONALSONVILLE, GA (WALB) - The family of four year old Brayton Cason told Seminole County Sheriff Heath Elliot which dog they think killed the young boy.
"Described to me as a yellowish red. Looks to be a bulldog, but possibly mixed with some other breed, but he has more of a bulldog look to him," said Elliot.
The little boy was found dead in his front yard Wednesday night, three hours after he was reported missing.
Elliot says the dog the family described was previously owned by one of their neighbors, but was abandoned at the home when the man moved away. "We're having a problem with the dog issue because there were no witnesses to the incident so we don't know which dog particularly we're looking for."
Elliot says the GBI brought in the dogs owned by Brayton's family. Investigators determined their dogs were not responsible.
"The dogs that were out there at the residence, I believe there were three that were in the yard, were all taken in and inspected by the crime scene investigators from GBI."
Elliot says they have received several dog complaints in the past, but he's never experienced an incident like this. "Most of those cases are where a dog will chase somebody on a bicycle or come out if they're walking their dog it will come out and get after their dogs they're walking, but I don't recall anybody actually being attacked."
Elliot says he thinks Cason was in the front yard for the entirety of the search. "It's a little four year old and he was laying full out in tall grass and it was just one of those things, until you walk right up on him you don't see him."
To try to prevent anything like this from happening again, Elliot has a message for dog owners. "They need to keep their dogs in a fenced in yard, in a kennel, or one of the exercise cables."
Elliot says once the dog is found his investigators will meet with the district attorney to decide if any charges will be filed.
Sheriff Elliot says if you come across this or any vicious dog, call 911 immediately.
