21-year-old Taiwan woman found dead in home
During a press conference on Saturday (28 Jan), the Taiwan police said that on 21 Jan, Chinese New Year’s Eve, at 6pm, Ms Huang and her boyfriend, who lived together, went to her family’s reunion dinner.
After dinner, Ms Huang felt ill and headed to their Taichung home to rest while her boyfriend went to work.
But when he returned home at around 10pm, he found that Ms Huang had passed away.
He notified the police, suspecting that she was bitten to death by her pet dogs.
When police arrived at the scene, she was pronounced dead on the spot.
ET Today reported that her body had been gruesomely mutilated by the dogs.
Her head, face, and thigh were bitten and gnawed at, to the extent that her skull and internal organs were exposed.
The case was later referred to forensics for examination.
Investigations reveal dogs ate body after her death
Ms Huang’s boyfriend told police that she had undergone kidney dialysis in the past two weeks.
After dialysis, she would develop epilepsy symptoms. Because of this, she had been taking medication for both epilepsy and liver disease.
In addition to that, the locked door of her home showed no signs of damage or fighting.
Preliminary investigations by forensics found that Ms Huang was only eaten by the dogs after her death, reported ET Today.
She was not killed by a dog attack.
Cause of death to be determined
Ms Huang owned five dogs — two French bulldogs, an English bulldog, a golden retriever, and a mixed-breed dog.
According to Yahoo News, the dogs are believed to have eaten her body to satisfy their hunger after Ms Huang’s death.
The exact cause of her death remains to be determined after taking blood samples.
