Virginia woman, 22, is mauled to death by her own pit bulls after taking them out for a walk: Father finds the dogs guarding his daughter's remains two days after she went missing in woods
A Virginia woman was mauled to death by her pair of pit bulls while taking them out for a walk in the woods. Bethany Lynn Stephens, 22, was found dead in a 'grisly' scene on Thursday night, two days after she was last seen heading out to walk her dogs in the woods near her Goochland, Virginia home. Authorities said she was found by her father, who was searching for her in an area where she was known to take the dogs out for walks. The dogs — described as being 'very large, brindle-colored pit bull dogs' — were said to be aggressively guarding her body when Stephens' father came across them, according to Goochland County Sheriff James L. Agnew, the Richmond-Times Dispatch reported. t's believed that the dogs had been bred for fighting. Initial medical examiner's reports indicated that Stephens, who stood 5-foot-1 and weighted 125 pounds, had defensive wounds on her hands and arms. Her wounds, which also included puncture wounds in her skull, were consistent with having been mauled. 'The first traumatic injury to her was to her throat and face,' Agnew said, adding that, 'It appears she was taken to the ground, lost consciousness, and the dogs then mauled her to death.' Source
