Police believe a 45-year-old man was attacked and killed by ONE OF HIS OWN PIT BULLS  in St. Louis County.  St. Louis County police were called to the 2200 block of Redman Avenue near Spanish Lake about 10:30 a.m. Monday, authorities said. Police say Adonis Reddick, 45, was found dead and had bite marks on his body.
On Tuesday, authorities said “penetrating and perforating wounds to the victim’s neck” had caused his death.
Two of the man's relatives who had not seen or heard from him since Saturday went to his home to check on him and found him dead, said Vera Culley, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis County Police Department.
The man's relatives also found two pit bulls in the home, one of which was acting aggressive. Authorities believe that dog bit the victim.
Culley said investigators aren't sure how long Reddick had been dead.
Culley said officers shot and killed the aggressive pit bull inside the home because police and animal control officers could not control it. The other pit bull was calm and taken into custody for evaluation.
