Probe of fatal pit bull attack inconclusive

From The Clarion Ledger

A Hinds County Grand Jury reached no conclusion on assigning guilt in the Feb. 12 mauling death of Anataisa Bingham, 5, of Terry, the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department reported.
Anataisa died two days before her 6th birthday after a pit bull dog attacked her near the house where she lived with her grandparents.
DNA testing on a pit bull discovered at the scene showed the the dog did not attack the young girl.
Acting on a confidential tip, investigators also recovered the remains of a dead pit bull from a ditch near the area, but DNA testing on the animal was inconclusive, the Sheriff’s Department reported.
No one has claimed ownership of the dead animal.
Law enforcement officers continue to investigate tips that several residents in the area stage pit-bull fights.
