According to WVUE, the victim was discovered at the residence in the 8700 block of S. Claiborne Avenue on Sunday, July 18 around 6:41 p.m. by the New Orleans Police Department.
Police believe he was attacked and killed by the family’s pit bull after climbing through the window of the residence.
The individual was a relative of the folks who resided at the house and was allowed to remain there, according to police.
The 66-year-old was discovered inside the residence with cuts on both arms. At the spot, he was pronounced dead.
After reportedly attacking the victim, the family’s pit bull had what seemed to be blood on its body, according to New Orleans Police spokesperson Juan Barnes.
The dog was taken in by the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LASPCA).
The man’s death is still being investigated.

The 66-year-old woman’s body was discovered by her daughter at 6 p.m. on July 18 in the 7200 block of Royal Arms Drive in West El Paso.
Despite the fact that the cause of the attack is unknown, the El Paso Police Department stated that “all indications are that the two pit bull dogs killed the woman.”
