Frankie Macritchie Parents Statement

A mother whose nine-year-old son was mauled to death by a dog while she took cocaine and partied with the animal’s owner in a nearby caravan was jailed for two years today.  Frankie’s mother Tawney Willis, 31, and Totterdell, along with other friends, we’re drinking and listening to music in a separate caravan at the time of the attack.

When Willis returned to the caravan in the early hours of the morning, a holidaymaker nearby heard her crying out ‘my baby, my baby’. Simon Laws, QC, prosecuting, said Frankie was left alone in a caravan at Tencreek Holiday Park near Looe, with Winston, who had previously attacked another boy. The adults in his group drank, smoked cannabis, and took cocaine in another caravan, the court heard. Willis went to check on him at around 04:30 – around two and a half hours after she had last seen him, Mr. Laws said. “She told the police that when she opened the door she could see a lot of blood on the floor and she could see Frankie lying still,” the prosecutor said.

He said Frankie’s Playstation was still switched on and, as he was known to play standing up, raising his voice, it was possible this “innocent behavior may have had something to do with what happened”.

Frankie’s grandmother Pauline Elford said Frankie, who was born with a heart problem, had been well-known on the campsite where he was attacked. Ms. Elford was on the site on the night he died and rushed to be by her grandson’s side after the alarm was raised. “When we opened the door the horrific scene that awaited us was unspeakable,” she said.

“It was so heartbreaking to know what that boy had gone through that night. “He was just so innocent and so vulnerable laid there.” Ms. Elford said it was “unbelievable” that Frankie, the “sweetest, funniest, strongest, bravest little boy” had been left in that situation. She said: “The loss of Frankie is huge, absolutely huge, certain family members won’t recover and Frankie’s daddy is a broken man.” Frankie’s father Billy Macritchie, said he would forever miss his “brave soldier”. “All I know is my boy should be here loving life here with me,” he said.

Arrested

Tawnee Willis, 31, from Plymouth, admitted neglect and was jailed for two years. Sentencing at Truro Crown Court, Judge Simon Carr said leaving the boy alone with the dog was “the height of folly”. Willis’s friend, Sadie Totterdell, 29, from Plymouth, was jailed for three years and banned from having a dog for 10 years. She admitted to owning the “dangerously out of control” bulldog.

The court heard Totterdell fled “in shock” and took Winston across the fields before catching a train with him to Plymouth where she was later arrested. Winston was later seized by police and destroyed. He said Frankie, who weighed 47kg – just 2kg more than the dog – died from blood loss after sustaining 54 injuries, with the most serious to his head and neck.

She admitted a charge of child neglect and was jailed for two years. Judge Simon Carr jailed Totterdell for three years, describing leaving Frankie alone with the ‘extremely powerful’ dog as ‘the height of folly’.
