Family of 10-year-old Jack Lis killed by dog pay tribute to ‘beautiful boy’


share close

The family of a 10-year-old boy who was killed by a dog have paid tribute to their “beautiful boy”.

Jack Lis died after being attacked by a dog at a friend’s house in Caerphilly, south Wales on Monday.

In a statement released through Gwent Police, his family have said: “We are absolutely heartbroken. Our lives will never be the same without Jack.

“This is not something any parent should ever have to be writing. We have so many words we want to say about our beautiful boy, but they do not seem enough. We love him more than words can describe.”

They added that Jack “made us the proudest parents and family on the planet” and that he was “the sweetest of boys.”

“We will forever miss his quirky ways and his stories that he would spend so long telling us. He’s forever in our hearts. Sweet dreams Jack, our perfect boy.”

Matthew Young, who says he’s the cousin of Jack’s mother, also shared a new photograph of the 10-year-old on a GoFundMe page set up to help with the funeral costs.

Mr Young wrote: “Jack was a loving caring young boy who will be greatly missed, never forgotten, and always in our hearts.”

It comes as Gwent Police said a 28-year-old woman from Caerphilly had been released on conditional bail after being arrested on suspicion of being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control which resulted in Jack’s death.

They added two men – a 34-year-old from the Mountain Ash area and a 19-year-old from the Caerphilly area – had both been released after voluntarily speaking to police over being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control.

Chief Superintendent Mark Hobrough said: “The work to identify the breed of dog involved this attack continues.

“Once this is completed, we will be able to establish if the breed features on the list of illegal dogs to own in this country and any other criminal offences identified will be investigated fully by officers.

“I understand that there is a lot of interest about this in our communities.

“It is vital that people are considering the tone and language used in comments posted on social media about the identities of anyone involved in this matter as part of our enquiries.

“It is important that people think about how their social media comments or posts could impact the ongoing investigation, and Jack’s grieving family.

“Once again, my condolences and thoughts are with Jack’s family, friends, school friends and everyone affected by this within the community.”
