Tributes for ‘caring’ woman mauled to death by Pitbull who ‘screamed for help’

A young woman who was mauled to death by a Pitbull in her sleep has been described as "kind and caring" by heartbroken locals.

Keira Ladlow, in her 20s, is understood to have been home alone when she was brutally attacked by a Pitbull.

A source told The Sun the "poor girl" was heard "screaming and shouting for help" during the "horrific attack".

The dog is believed to have belonged to a family member who also lived at the address in Kitts Green, Birmingham, according to reports.

According to the source, the girl was "very badly injured" and suffered horrific injuries to her arm.

Tributes have now flooded in for "kind and caring" Keira who was a keen kick-boxer and a former member of the Force Once club.

One local resident, who does not want to be named, said: "She used to be really into it and pretty good. She went to the same gym as my daughter who’s a couple of years younger than her.

"I haven’t seen her for years now but I remember she was a lovely girl. She was kind, caring and a really nice girl.

"It’s awful she died the way she did."

Maggie Moss wrote on Facebook: "RIP Keira Ladlow. Thoughts are with your family at this sad time god bless you all xxx."

Another friend said: "Keira Force one forever."

The source added: "The poor girl was heard by neighbours screaming and shouting for help.

"The screams were extremely loud. They could also hear a dog in the house barking incredibly loud. It was constant. The girl was very badly injured. It was horrific. It's heartbreaking. Her family are totally devastated."

In a statement, a spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "No one else was in the property at the time, and the woman’s family has signed the dog, believed to be a Staffordshire cross, over to police. It will be humanely put to sleep.

"The death is being treated as a tragic incident, but with no suspicious circumstances.

"A file will be prepared for the coroner in due course."
