A toddler died on Monday after she was taken from an Ohio home that was deemed not suitable ‘for people or pets’ and had 16 dead animals inside.
According to dailymail.co.uk:
Arez Marie Isabella Scrodi, 21-months, was identified as the small girl who was found unresponsive when she was taken from a Dayton, Ohio home.
Local police did not comment on the cause of death of the toddler but investigators did clarify that the 16 dead animals – 15 snakes and 1 cat – were not directly responsible for her death.
‘We don’t have anything as far as the cause of injuries and stuff, exactly,’ Dayton police Lt. Gregg Gaby said to the Dayton Daily News.
‘We’re still under investigation at this point.’
While no arrest have been made, a Montgomery County Children Services spokesman said there was an open case involving an adult at the residence.
A police report said that there were at least three children in the home along with four adults.
Dispatch logs show that the grandmother went to check on the little girl and found her unresponsive as family members tried to revive her.
Oh, my God. C’mon baby girl,’ said one of family members.
‘I’m in the medical field, I shouldn’t be wigging out, but this is my grand baby.’
Animal control investigators found the dead animals on the scene. A living boa constrictor-type snake along with a rabbit and a dog were taken from the home.
‘Unfortunately, it was more of a recovery than a rescue,’ said Mark Kumpf, Montgomery County Animal Control director.
‘The conditions inside weren’t fit for people or pets. … The conditions overall were not fit, nothing provided for animals in terms of food and water.’
There was a rusty chain link fence surrounding the front yard of the two-story home. Litter and debris covered the front porch area.
One neighbor asked officials about what happened and commented on the home.
One neighbor said he asked officials about the situation.
‘That the home was deplorable and they were going to take the kids away and they did,’ said Gene Smith.
