PICTURED: ‘Distraught’ owner of dog that mauled boy, 9, to death at caravan park

“It is still too raw we are all trying to still just process it”

Dog owner Sadie’s mum Denise

The 28-year-old’s mum has now claimed the tragedy has left her daughter “distraught”.

Speaking earlier today, 58-year-old Denise said: “Sadie is not good at all. It is just tragic.

“It is still too raw we are all trying to still just process it, especially for the family as well.

“It is just so, so sad.”

It is believed that the bloodbath was discovered by Frankie’s mum, who was heard shrieking: “The dog’s attacked my boy”.

Her screams alerted Sadie, who grabbed her dog and fled 22-miles away to Plymouth, where she was later arrested.

She was released under investigation by police probing possible offences of manslaughter and having a dog dangerously out of control.

The dog was taken to police kennels, where its fate remains undecided.

During a live televised press conference, Mike West, Detective Superintendent from the D&C Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “We believe that Frankie was alone in a caravan with the dog as he was attacked, whilst the adults that he was on holiday with, were in an adjacent unit.

“These two groups of people were all known to each other and all from the Plymouth area.

“The woman that we arrested in connection to this matter has been released under investigation and the dog remains in kennels.”

Henry Joce, of Tencreek Holiday Park, said: “It is with profound sadness that Tencreek Holiday Park management can confirm that emergency services were called to an incident in a static caravan just before 5am on Saturday April 13.

“Tragically, a child was pronounced deceased at the scene after being attacked by a dog present in the same caravan.

“Clearly our thoughts are very much with the family involved – they have our deepest sympathies.”
