An 85-year-old woman allegedly killed in a dog attack is photographed for the first time.
Lucille Downer’s family said they would “miss her a lot” after her death at the Rolly Regis on Friday, according to West Midlands Police.
The grandmother was seriously injured as a result of a continuous attack in her back garden.
Police believe two dogs managed to breach a hole in a neighbor’s fence around 3.20 p.m. Thursday.
Locals rushed to the park to help her, but her death was confirmed at the scene shortly thereafter.
In a heartbreaking statement, her family said: “Lucille was a mother, grandmother and grandmother who spent her years as a chef at Bromford House Care Home in West Bromwich.
“Lucille was born in Jamaica and immigrated to the UK in her early twenties. Since arriving in the UK, Rolly Regis has always been her home and her family will miss her a lot.”
The grandmother suffered a dog bite injuries, and the autopsy was carried out in time.
A 43-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of being the person in charge of a dog that is seriously out of control and causing death.
He was sent on bail to a suitable address, with conditions pending further inquiries.
Police investigate and resume anyone with information they did not actually contact to contact Live Chat or 101, citing Record 2501 on 2/4/21.
