Pit bulls fatally maul suspected Georgia home intruder

Two pit bulls fatally mauled a suspected intruder in Georgia, leaving the body on their owner’s front porch, authorities said.

Alex Binyam Abraha, 21, of Atlanta, was found early on Sept. 24 by the homeowner in Coweta County, where authorities said evidence shows he was inside the residence at some point, WAGA reported.

The homeowner, who was not publicly identified, returned to his Newnan residence last Friday morning and made the grisly find on his porch, investigators said.

“[The] homeowner doesn’t know him, wasn’t expecting him, was not home at the time,” Investigator Toby Nix of the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office told the station.

An autopsy revealed Abraha, who had warrants out for his arrest in Fulton County, had been fatally mauled by the dogs. Authorities believe he had broken into the home and encountered the animals, but an investigation is ongoing, WAGA reported.

No charges will be filed against the homeowner, although the fate of his canine companions is unclear.

“The dogs have been turned over to animal control and nothing has been determined as to what happens next for them,” Nix told the station.

Sheriff officials are trying to figure out how Abraha got to the home since no vehicle was found nearby.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is also assisting in the probe, the Newnan Times-Herald reported.
