After a dog’s owner finds his dog enjoying a very big bone that he did not give him, his worst fears were realized. The dog had dragged home human remains. The discovery of human remains is one disturbing event especially when that discovery comes from your dog gnawing on a human femur. This is one very grisly way to find that the bones your dog dragged home belong to a human cadaver. That is exactly what happened in Atlanta this week with a dog named Brix, according to WSBTV News on Oct. 30.
The two-year-old boxer dragged one bone home and left it on the porch. He later went out and brought home two more bones, leaving one on the living room couch and the other he left in the driveway of his owner’s home, Mike Page. That is when Page first saw his dog gnawing on a large bone and he recognized it as possibly being a human bone. Because the bone was so large he knew it was the size of a femur bone, he said. Once Page realized what his dog had in his mouth, he called 911, reports Mail Online today.
Staff from the medical examiner’s office identified the bones as human and the police are now treating the remains as part of a crime scene. Police started a search for the rest of the bones in the neighborhood using their canine unit, but police asked if they could use Brix to possibly lead them to where she found the bones.
Page said the police wanted him to take the dog around the corner to see if the dog would lead them to the spot where she found the human remains. The dog actually did find more bones and the medical personal deemed them human remains once again. Brix led them to a few more bones in an open field near John Street, but not a complete set of human remains.
Police told the media that their goal was to find the rest of the human skeleton that they believe could possibly be nearby. The remains were not enough to immediately determine if the bones were from a male or female. Finally the cadaver dogs located a skeleton behind a nearby house. The remains were in an “advanced stage of decomposition.”
Police need more information, but for now they are checking to see if anyone has been reported missing in the area lately. Page gave some details to the media saying that the bones looked to have been there for a long time. He said that there was no flesh left on the bone. Clothes were found nearby the skeleton, but police have not released any information regarding the details of those clothes.
Police do not know if the remains are male or female. They do not know the age or race of the person whose remains these are and they also don’t know how long the bones had been there. The investigation is on-g
