Probe of dog attack at standstill

Posted: Updated:

HOUMA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Houma police say the investigation of the March 24 death of a 4-year-old girl who was attacked by her mother's pit bull dog has made no progress.

Police Chief Todd Duplantis says it won't until the girl's mother and her boyfriend agree to talk to authorities.

Mia DeRouen and her mother were sitting on their couch watching TV when the dog attacked them. DeRouen did not survive the attack.

After nearly two months of trying to speak with Megan Touchet, the mother who was also injured in the attack, and her boyfriend, Kerry Dominique, Duplantis says detectives are still being told that they are reluctant to speak.

He says detectives have stopped trying.
