An Amazon driver’s body was discovered in the yard of a house in rural northwest Missouri. Investigators attempt to ascertain whether two dogs are to blame for the man’s demise.
According to Ray County Sheriff Scott Childers, deputies were called to a property in Excelsior Springs on Monday night after hearing that an Amazon truck had been parked there with its lights on and engine running for nearly two hours.
The driver’s body was discovered in the yard in front of the house.
His identity has not been made public.
Childers claimed that the man’s injuries were consistent with an animal assault and that two vicious dogs—an English Mastiff and a German Shepherd—were present at the house.
But he added that an autopsy would be performed to see whether the dogs brought on the driver’s demise.
Due to the mastiff’s violent behavior toward responding medical personnel and sheriff’s deputies, a deputy shot and injured it.
However, the deputies heard the dogs barking and noticed blood on the doggy door as the dogs entered the house once more.
Childers claimed that to protect the site’s deputies, medics, and investigators, he and the deputies entered the house and shot and killed the dogs.
