Police in Virginia have released new disturbing details about the grisly death of a 22-year-old woman who was killed by her own dogs. On Monday, Sheriff Jim Agnew called a late night press conference to share evidence with reporters, after getting the go-ahead from the victim’s family.
Agnew showed reporters photographs from the scene, according to NBC12. The images were so disturbing that no publication or television station is showing them to the public. They reveal that the two pet pit bulls ate parts of 22-year-old Bethany Lynn Stephens’s body.
Police also witnessed the dogs eating her, while they discussed what to do with the dogs.
“While we were thinking about strategies to catch the dogs, we had turned and looked, the dogs had gone back over to the body,” says Sheriff Agnew. “And I observed, along with four other deputy sheriffs observed, the dog eating the rib cage on the body.
