There have been numerous requests for confirmation that the victim of the dog mauling from last week, Triniti Harrell, has passed away. I feel confidant at this time that the information is correct and that she has passed away as a result of her wounds from this incident. There are still no charges expected in this tragic accident. We ask for continued prayers for her family and the first responders who were involved. We would also ask for restraint and respect for her family in this trying time, in terms of coverage. Please keep a distance from their family home and any funeral proceedings unless they invite you in.
Thank you all for your concern.
I don’t anticipate any further comment on this matter from our office.
