Following the report, the victim's father, Carnell Jackson, said the boys could not get away because the dogs surrounded them from different directions. He also claimed that authorities had denied his wife from having any contact with her deceased child.

The father wasn't fine with the arrangement, but the police needed to investigate the case first. As investigations proceed, the Marion County Sheriff's Office noted that they had captured five dogs, but sadly this move has not yielded any information.
