Toddler Found Dead In Home With Boa Constrictor and 15 Dead Snakes

BOA Constrictor

A toddler in Ohio died shortly after she was found on Sunday in a home filled with over a dozen dead animals, including 15 dead snakes and a living BOA Constrictor, authorities said.

The 1-year-old toddler, identified on Tuesday as Arez Marie Isabella Schrodi, was found unresponsive and not breathing at her grandparents’ house in Dayton just before 1 a.m. Sunday, FOX45 reported.¬†She had been rushed to the hospital, where she later died. An autopsy should determine the cause of death. At this time no arrests have been made.

“We do not have anything so far as the origin of accidents and stuff, just,” Dayton police Lt. Gregg Gaby told Dayton Daily News. “We are still under investigation now.

“Police said the house had “cleanliness problems” and was not fit for humans or animals. At least four adults and three children lived in the house. In the house lived several live animals but also the carcasses of 15 snakes and a cat were found. The snakes were most pythons and were kept in plastic trays, Animal Rescue Center researchers told WHIO.

A 4-foot snake, what looked like a boa constrictor, a dog, and a rabbit were removed from the house and placed in animal rescue maintenance.

“It is kind of shocking,” a neighbor who lives across from the white, two-story home told WHIO. The home, with a rusty chain-link fence surrounding it, also contained garbage and miscellaneous debris covering the front yard and port.
