A little girl who was found inside an Ohio home filled with more than a dozen dead animals, including 15 dead snakes, has died over the weekend, police reported.
Arez Marie Isabella Schrodi, who was just a year old, was found unresponsive and not breathing at her grandparents’ home in Dayton, Ohio around 1 a.m. Sunday. The toddler was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
An autopsy is being conducted to determine the child’s cause of death.
Dayton police are still investigating, and no arrests have been made.
Authorities said the home had “cleanliness issues” and was unfit for humans or animals. Reportedly, at least four adults and three children lived in the home.
Animal Rescue Center investigators said the carcasses of 15 snakes and a cat were lying among several live animals. In addition, at least 12 of the 15 dead snakes found were pythons and were held in plastic trays.
A 4-foot snake, believed to be a boa constrictor, a rabbit and a dog were removed from the home and placed in animal rescue care.
