Pit bull attack leaves woman dead, husband injured, police say

Two pit bulls reportedly mauled a Kentucky woman to death and injured her husband during a gruesome attack on Christmas Eve.

It is unclear what drove the dogs to attack their neighbors, but experts say it's unlikely that pit bulls just turn bad.

Bell County Coroner Jay Steele, says Lorraine Brock Saylor, 66, was killed by two dogs Sunday morning. "The husband suffered wounds as well, but was able to shoot both dogs killing one while the other ran off near Country Lane". Also, the dog which was killed by Johnny will undergo a necropsy.

Animal control and the Bell County Sheriff's Department are now searching for the brown Pit bull.

The toddler had entered a fenced enclosure which housed two pit bull dogs when the creatures started attacking him.

'The dogs belonged to 42 year old Johnny Dale Lankford who was already lodged in the Bell County Detention Center on charges he acquired Friday afternoon December 22nd for assault 2nd degree - domestic violence, unlawful imprisonment - 2nd degree, and a bench warrant.

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

Responders pronounced Lorraine dead on the scene and Johnny was taken to a hospital with injuries to his arm and head.

The Bell County Sheriff's Department said it received a call at 10:20 a.m. Highway 66 in the Wiser Branch area of Arjay about the dog attack.

"I'd seen them, but I didn't think they'd be mean like that", James Saylor said.

An autopsy on Saylor is scheduled for this week. "She anxious more about neighbors and friends than she did herself, as Johnny's the same way, they're just a very giving couple".
