Bloodbath in the woods: Woman mauled to death by her OWN dogs

Bethany Lynn Stephens

A 22-year-old Virginia woman appears to have been mauled to death by her dogs while out for a walk.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Bethany Lynn Stephens' body was found by Goochland County deputies around 8:18 p.m. Thursday in a wooded area.

As authorities in Virginia continue their investigation into the death of 22-year-old Bethany Stephens, many people online are questioning the manner in which she died. "There were various articles of clothing, underclothing scattered about the area not far from the body and torn into small pieces, there were patches of blood", Goochland Sheriff James Agnew told local Fox affiliate.

There are photos of Stephens on her Facebook page with a brindle pitbull, one she had written was named "Tonka".

A YOUNG woman has suffered a horrific death after being mauled by her own dogs in the United States.

She says that he tried to give her a massage, before chasing her around a hotel room at the Toronto Film Festival in 1995. Director Peter Jackson made the revelations this week after staying quiet on the scandal for months.

"It was an absolutely grisly mauling", Agnew told reporters.

It is believed the dogs had been bred for fighting.

However, Stephens' friends say the pit bulls would never have harmed their owner.

"Those dogs would not attack her", said Norris. They were her dogs.

The dogs were eventually tranquilized and removed by animal control, who are now in possession of the dogs.

"Dogs don't typically just out of the blue attack their owners, so there is typically some kind of provocation", she said, as per news outlets, inferring that provocation causes fear, which may have led to aggression.

While Bethany was found with defensive wounds on her hands and arms, she also had puncture wounds to the skull and had wounds on her throat throat and face.

Norris said that the dogs' kennels appeared to have been broken open, as if the dogs had escaped to help Stephens. "In my 40 years of law enforcement, I've never seen anything quite like it. Hope I'd never see anything like it again". "I wasn't able to see the body, so I can't tell you what happened".

Agnew said it is not clear why the dogs attacked Stephens.

There were no signs of strangulation, leading Agnew to say Stephens probably wasn't killed in a homicide, according to WTVR.

He quickly called emergency services, but when they arrived, police spent about 60 to 90 minutes attempting to catch the dogs, described as pit bulls.
