Man with over 100 bites found dead after being mauled by a pack of dogs


A man in Florida was found dead with more than 100 dog bites on his body last week, authorities said.

Officials with the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office said following an autopsy that Melvin Olds Jr. likely died after being attacked by dogs, but an official cause of death has not been confirmed.

“Final determination will be made after toxicology reports are completed, which typically takes many weeks, but no wounds other than those caused by dogs were found on Olds’ body during an autopsy,” reads a Facebook post by the Highland County Sheriff’s Office.

Olds, 45, was found in a wooded area near Lake Placid on July 4, and the autopsy was conducted a day later.

Authorities said they captured six dogs whose bite marks match the size of those found on Olds’ body, but will conduct DNA tests in an effort to confirm whether the dogs are the ones who attacked him.
