(WIBW)--- Around 8 p.m. Saturday night, 13 NEWS learned that the Topeka Police Department responded to a house located on the 800 block of SE Carnahan after a 911 call that 2 year-old Piper Dunbar was reported missing.

"We looked everywhere, I screamed her name so loud,” said Piper’s father, Donnie Dunbar. “Can’t believe that quick the most precious thing on earth can be taken away from you."
Police began searching the area and found Piper dead in her front yard underneath a tarp. Dunbar says he and Piper fell asleep earlier that evening and he told 13 NEWS he was unaware of what was happening.

"She figured out had to open a child safety lock with her fingers,” said Dunbar. “She could turn the knob and open a dead bolt that’s on the back door, she was so smart."

Throughout the course of their investigation, police say they obtained enough information to believe Piper had been the victim of an animal attack. Animal control responded to the scene and seized  TWO PIT BULLS  that Dunbar says belonged to Margaret Jaramillo, a family friend who had been staying with Dunbar to help take care of Piper since he is a single father. Jaramillo says she was running errands during the attack and made the 911 call as soon as she realized Piper was gone.


"I saw her from the distance they wouldn't let us close to see her, from what I understand they think her injuries were caused by the dogs,” said Jaramillo.
Jaramillo says the two dogs were in the backyard and doesn’t know how they made their way to the front where Piper was. Police are continuing to investigate the case, but both Jaramillo and Dunbar are torn by the loss of Piper.
"She just loved attention and loved to be hugged,” said Jaramillo.

Dunbar and Jaramillo were taken to police headquarters and interviewed and TPD detective Brian Wheelus. Wheelus says the police investigation will be submitted to District Attorney Chad Taylor's office.

Why do people keep pit bulls when they have children? PIT BULLS ARE NOT NANNY DOGS, AND SHOULD NOT BE ANYWHERE NEAR CHILDREN!

I wonder what the details will be as we learn more about this mauling death?

In the meantime, rest in peace little one.

Such devastating news! I wish keeping babies safe was taken more seriously.

WIBW has the story with information from her father confirming they were pit bulls. And those pits were living at the home fenced in the back yard. Somehow she was found in the front yard. A comment stream conversation on Facebook eluded to the fact that these were rescues previously and had been temprament tested. A lot of good that did.
God cradle her precious soul, safe forevermore.

"Jaramillo says the two dogs were in the backyard and doesn’t know how they made their way to the front where Piper was."

The fence in the video is only about three feet high. They could have easily cleared that. I'm not sure why so many people are surprised that dogs have legs and can climb and jump.

The police siezed two pit bulls owned by Margaret Jaramillo. She stayed with the single dad to babysit, but was out at the time of the attack, she said, according to wibw news.

Now that more information has come out, hopefully these two will be charged with negligence! At the very least, charged with something!

Looking at the picture of that little baby girl breaks my heart. She did not deserve to die that way.
