Sadie was playing outside a relative’s home when a dog owned by the relative’s neighbor “viciously attacked her, causing significant injuries,” the affidavit says. The relative who owned the home “attempted to intervene and stop the attack by hitting the dog with a cane,” but was unable to stop the dog, which “continued to attack Victim in the front yard.”

Sadie died after suffering “numerous dog bites to the face.” The attack caused “substantial damage to her skull, which ultimately resulted in her death,” the document says. Deputies and officers with the East Baton Rogue Animal Control Bureau captured the dog, which reportedly remained unrestrained. “The pit-bull terrier was observed with blood around the face and mouth area.

Once captured, the pit bull terrier was taken into the custody of EBR Animal Control Officers,” the affidavit reads. “The Declarant observed a substantial amount of blood in the patio where the Victim was attacked. Additionally, the witness learned that the attack occurred on the victim’s property, which is approximately 150 yards from where the dog’s owner resides.”

Investigators say there was no fence, barrier or leash that would have confined the dog to Lopez’s property. Detectives located Lopez and took him into custody. After being read his Miranda rights, Lopez allegedly admitted that he owned the animal that mutilated Sadie, but said he was not present during the attack.

In addition, he told authorities that “his dog was not restrained when he left the residence” and confirmed that he “often” let the animal “roam the neighboring property (where the victim was attacked)” without any restriction type. Lopez was charged with negligent homicide for allegedly “failing to confine or restrain the dog and let it roam the neighborhood,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
