Kentucky woman killed 'savagely' in dog attack identified

Two dogs attacked and killed a woman and left her husband injured in southern Kentucky, CBS affiliate WKYT in Lexington reports. Officials said the dogs did not belong to the couple.

Sheriff's deputies in Bell County, Ky., said Lorraine Brock Saylor suffered severe injuries and was dead at the scene Sunday morning. Police responding to the scene "discovered a woman and her husband had been savagely attacked by two pit bulls", according to a statement from the department.

"Johnny got a gun and shot both dogs, killing one of them instantly", said Steele. When he came outside, he shot one of the dogs in the chest as it lunged at him.

Bell County Sheriff Mitch Williams is asking the community to be alert and on the lookout for a brown pit bull. The other pit bull ran off.

At the time of the attack, Lankford was already being held in the Bell County Detention Center on charges including domestic violence and unlawful imprisonment, which he acquired on Friday, Dec. 22.

Investigators with the sheriff's office are warning residents no to engage with the unsafe animal if they come across it.

A pitbull that ran away Sunday morning after a fatal attack in the Wiser Branch area of Bell County, Kentucky was put down Monday afternoon.

The victims' will be released after their family is notified, investigators said. "They were both active within the community and just, like I said, two of the nicest people you would ever meet".

The Bell County Sheriff's Department determined the dogs do not belong to the couple.
