'Tragic' Find After Woman Doesn't Return From Walk

(Newser) – All she did was go for a walk—but she never came home. Unidentified by officials, a 66-year-old woman was killed Thursday by two pit bulls while taking her daily walk in rural North Carolina, WSOC reports. Her husband and neighbors scoured their area of western Montgomery County when she didn’t return, but couldn’t find anything and called 911. Emergency personnel and deputies soon found her body on an unused road. They determined she had been attacked by dogs and found two local pit bulls “with physical evidence” reflecting their involvement, Sheriff Chris Watkins says in a statement, per the Courier-Tribune.

The dogs have been quarantined and the dogs’ owner is said to be cooperating. As the investigation continues, the woman is being sent to the state’s medical examiner in Raleigh for an autopsy. “This is a very tragic event, which has deeply affected the family, friends, deputies and first responders, our thoughts and prayers are being extended to all,” says Watkins.
