A 2 year old Chicago girl, Jah'Niyah White was killed by her grandfather's pit bulls, Brownie and General Chico while she was reportedly left unattended in his apartment. The family has said the dogs are pit bulls and calls from reporters at the Chicago Tribune to Chicago Animal Care and Control have not been answered.

She was much loved by her parents and grandparents. Her mother and father, Kashairah Gardner John White of Missouri, are arranging to have her Christmas presents donated to the needy. Britt Williams-Nelson, Jah'Niyah's paternal grandmother, who called Jah'Niyah her Ladybug, said that Jah'Niyah was the smartest 2 year old she'd ever met.
The medical examiner's office determined that Jah'Niyah died from dog bite injuries with contributing factor being neglect and called the death a homicide, however the police department's investigation is so far non-criminal. The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the girl's grandfather for allegations of abuse pertaining to the child's death.
