A Brooklyn dad killed his young daughter and fed her to a pit bull in 2006, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
Edward Brown allegedly punched and drowned his daughter Serenity, who was almost 2 years old, because she was laughing too loudly, sources told the Daily News.
Serenity's mother told investigators Brown then cut up the girl's remains and fed them to a pit bull, which he later killed.
A probe into the incident didn't begin until October 2011, when the Daily News reported that social workers visited the girl's mother, Paula Johnson, because she was reportedly keeping her 12-year-old son home from school.
Johnson told investigators Brown killed Serenity soon after social workers discovered she was missing.
