MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A child in Goulds was mauled to death by at least one dog Wednesday morning.

Police have identified the boy as 4-year-old Javon Dade, Jr.

Police were originally called to the home because Javon was missing.

“According to investigators, at approximately 10:09 a.m., police received a phone call advising of a missing 4-year old male. As officers arrived they did an area canvas where they discovered a black male, four years of age, deceased in the back yard,” said Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Det. Robin Pinkard.

Chopper4 over the scene spotted the tarp covered body lying in the fenced yard of a home on SW 123rd Avenue about a block south of SW 228th Street.

Neighbors told CBS4’s Gary Nelson that the boy was staying with his father, Javon Dade, Sr. in the home and the family had at least two dogs who they described as being very aggressive. They said when the family’s dogs were out in the yard they didn’t go near the fence.

“They always bark so we try to keep them away because they’re pit bulls,” neighbor Janet Howard said.

Jason Brown, 24, was arrested July 9 and charged with six felony counts of torturing or maiming and killing an animal in the troubling case that has sparked public outrage.

Authorities said they were called to the motel in a busy area across the street from a shopping mall in suburban south Reno after a maid reported the discovery in a room Brown had been renting.

Officers also found two bloody kitchen knives, the scissors of a Swiss Army knife, two dog collars with rabies tags registered to Frank along with her dogs’ dishes, blankets and tennis balls she had given Brown to help make her pets happy.

On Wednesday, a half-dozen animal protection activists with signs demonstrated outside Reno Justice Court, where Brown’s status hearing had been scheduled but was continued to Oct. 16.
