GADSDEN, AL (WAFF) - Testing has determined that a dog skinned in Gadsden sustained the injuries in an animal attack.

Skip, a 9-year-old Dachsund, was found mutilated behind his house. A veterinarian examined him and believed his injuries were caused by a person.

A person of interest was identified in the case, but no one came forward with any information.

Skip's remains were sent for necropsy and it was determined he had been attacked by an animal.

Investigators are still looking into the case because of conflicting reports and further testing is planned.

Until other leads are discovered, this case will be in-activated and anyone who donated to the reward will receive a refund.  Reward donors will be contacted by the Criminal Investigation Division on the refund process.
