Aiden McGrew, 2012


We will WALK for YOU, Aiden.  RIP little Angel. 




Meet Aiden McGrew, 2-months old from Ridgeville, SC
Aiden was viciously mauled to death by the family dog, a Retriever Mix that was recently adopted by the family. 

Aiden McGrew, 2-months old, was killed by the family dog while his mother was away and his father was sleeping. The mother found her son after returning from a doctor's appointment with her 7-year old daughter. The other child in the household, 3-years old, was asleep with the father during the mauling. The baby was left in a "bouncy chair" by his mother before leaving to the doctor's office. Initially awake that morning, the father, Quintin McGrew, fell back asleep. The recently adopted dog, described as a golden retriever-mix, pulled the infant from the chair and severed the baby's leg during the attack. Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nesbit ruled the death a homicide and that neglect led to the boy's death by "animal eating." The father was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The couple's two other children were taken into protective custody after the attack.

Please come and WALK with us for VICTIMS like Aiden, and so many others who's lives have been so tragically and unfairly taken in such a horrific way. 


R.I.P. Aiden
You did NOT deserve this.

  1. And here's a picture of said Golden Retriever mix:

    That dog looks like it has more than a little pit bull in its family tree.

  2. Yes the picture shows a PITBULL MIX.. It is wrong to help spread propaganda about dog breeds that are not the killers and just accept any unfactual reporting that gets on the web. The picture sure does look like a PITBULL MIX. CHANGE the headline please if you want respect for your organization. Just because the pitnutters are successful in hiding the pitbull mixes in the news that are killing doesn't mean you should help them! Change the title to to PITBULL MIX or take it down.

  3. Hi Jewel Jade and Walk for Victims!

    Unfortunately, I live too far away to attend this important event. I wish I could show support somehow.

    I read that you rented the park for the Walk. If you had to pay for this, I would be happy to make a donation to help cover the cost.

    You can email me at piecesofmargo@gmail.com if you are interested, just in case I forget to come back her and check the comments thread.

  4. @ Anon, I don't think The Walk's credibility is at stake due to the Retriever-mix headline. While I completely agree that the dog looks like a pit-mix, if all of the official documents pertinent to this case and the media reports say that the dog is a retriever mix, then it is reasonable to print that.

    I would put a picture of the dog in the blog post, however. The picture speaks for itself.
