 Deputies determined a missing Texas man was reportedly eaten by more than one of his dogs,  KTVT  reported. 
Deputies were called to a trailer home to perform a welfare check on 57-year-old Freddie Mack May 6; relatives said they had not heard from Mack since April 19.
According to KTVT, relatives couldn’t get close enough to check on Mack because 18 aggressive dogs were keeping them away. With the help of deputies, family was able to search a small area of the property, but they could not locate Mack.
Deputies said they tried again May 9, but because of the aggressive dogs, they were unable to thoroughly search the area. A drone was flown over the property, and Mack was listed as a missing person.
Family and neighbors said it was odd for Mack to leave his dogs unattended, according to KTVT.
On May 15, deputies said one of them discovered a piece of bone on the property; two days later, a search warrant was executed and several pieces of bone were sent to a medical examiner.
According to KTVT, 16 dogs were seized May 19 so the search could continue. This search turned up strips of cloth, dog feces containing bone fragments and suspected human hair.
Law enforcement began to suspect Mack had been eaten when relatives described clothing worn by Mack that resembled the fabric found in the feces.
Sheriff Adam King said Mack suffered from a medical condition, so it is unclear if the dogs killed Mack or if they just consumed him after he died.
According to KTVT, because of the dogs’ aggressive nature, they were put down.
On July 9, two pieces of bone fragment were positively identified as Freddie Mack.
Detectives believe a missing North Texas man was consumed entirely by his own dogs.
Freddie Mack, a 57-year-old man from Johnson County, was reported missing in the spring.
According to a news release from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies met with Mack’s concerned family members who said they had last heard from him on April 19.
Deputies went to Mack’s home on King Cotton Road near Venus for a welfare check but initially couldn’t get close because of  18 AGGRESSIVE DOGS. They were able to distract the dogs for a while but didn’t find any sign of Mack inside his trailer, the sheriff’s office said.
The deputies returned to the home in May and again couldn’t get close because of the dogs. They used a drone to search the property and again didn’t find any sign of the missing man.
Throughout the month of May, the sheriff’s office said detectives checked area hospitals and jails and sought help on social media. They interviewed family members and neighbors who all described Mack as a reclusive man who rarely left his dogs unattended.
It wasn’t until May 15 that a detective spotted a small bone fragment while searching Mack’s property one more time. The detective returned with a search warrant a few days later and found more small bone fragments in the trailer and shed on Mack’s property.
The sheriff's office seized the dogs, allowing detectives to conduct a more thorough search of the property. They cleared high brush and found dog feces that contained even more bone and clothing fragments. The fragments were sent in for forensic testing and positively identified as being Mack’s remains.
"During the course of our investigation, it was found that Freddie suffered from serious medical conditions.  So we will never know if the dogs killed Mr. Mack or consumed him after he died from a medical condition.  Either way, it is a very gruesome event and we extend our sympathy to Freddy Mack’s family,” Sheriff Adam King said.
The sheriff’s office said by the time the dogs were seized, two had been killed by other dogs.  Thirteen of the remaining 16 were euthanized because of their aggressive nature. 
Deputies began putting food and water over the fence for the dogs after Mack was reported missing, the sheriff's office said.
