The body of Alex Binyam Abraha was discovered on the homeowner’s front porch after being mauled to death by pitbulls

An intruder was mauled to death by a pair of dogs after breaking into a Georgia home last week, according to local authorities. 

The homeowner, who was not named, discovered the body of 21-year-old Alex Binyam Abraha on his front porch around 10:30 am on September 24.

Authorities said Abraha successfully entered the two-bedroom house in a rural area of Newnan the night before, and was immediately greeted by two pit bulls inside the home.  

The sheriff’s department initially called in homicide investigators from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation thinking that Abraha’s death was a murder.

However, the medical examiner eventually determined he died from injuries sustained during the dog attack.

Fox News reports that the homeowner told authorities he did not know Abraha nor did he know how he got in, adding the man had no reason to be inside the house. 

Both dogs were seized as a part of the investigation by the county’s Department of Corrections. As of Friday afternoon, it was not immediately clear what will happen to them. 

Pictures of both dogs were tweeted by Doug Evans, a journalist with local Fox affiliate WAGA-TV.

Abraha, who grew up in Worthington, Minnesota, had several active warrants in Fulton County at the time of his death, Fox News reports.

Meanwhile the homeowner will not face charges related to Abraha’s death, according to Fox News. 

A GoFundMe was started for Abraha following his death, and has raised nearly $1,000 with a goal of $25,000.

‘As horrible as dealing with death is, his family has to deal with confusing and unclear details from the police, with no concrete evidence or story,’ organizer Sara Abraha wrote.  

Abraha’s family claimed they were notified ‘days’ after his death, adding that they have received conflicting and confusing information from investigators. 

‘The family was told by an investigator on the case that they would be working on the autopsy, yet there was an article posted stating an autopsy was already finished and concluded,’  the GoFundMe page says. 

‘As the family searches for a sense of closure, we want to come together and support them financially with funeral expenses and planning his final resting place.’
