Police are investigating after a 68-year-old woman was found dead with several dog bite marks on her body in the basement of her Staten Island home Tuesday morning, according to police.
Daisie Bradshaw was found with bruises and cuts to her body in the Simonson Avenue basement at about 9:30 a.m., police said. She was declared dead on the scene.
Neighbors said there were two mixed-breed pit bull dogs belonging to the woman's daughter inside the home.
Police said the woman had dog bite marks on her body but it's not clear if those caused her death.
The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
