A 66-year-old woman from North Carolina who went out to walk daily was attacked and killed by two pit bulls.

Montgomery County Sheriff Chris Watkins said in a statement that the woman, whose name has not been disclosed, disappeared while performing her daily walk on Thursday.

When she did not return home, her husband called friends and neighbors who helped search the area around Lake Tillery, North Carolina, for the development in which they lived.

Unable to find it, they called 911, according to the statement obtained by the Montgomery Herald.

Sheriff's deputies and a search and rescue team were sent to the area. In a matter of hours, the woman's body was found next to a road not used in the development.

During the investigation, authorities found two neighborhood pit bulls who believed they had participated in the attack based on physical evidence reflecting their participation.

The dogs were quarantined.

"The owner agreed that the dogs were slaughtered so they could be examined forensically to see if they were suffering from rabies," Watkins told The News & Observer on Saturday, adding that forensic doctors also wanted to study the size of pitbull jaws. .

The woman will undergo an autopsy at the Office of the Medical Examiner of North Carolina in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The incident continues to be seen as a death investigation, not as a criminal investigation, however, it is said that the district attorney's office is reviewing the case, FOX8 reported.
