Local deputies found the body of Bethany Stephens, 22, in a wooded area off of Manakin Road in Goodland, Va. around 8:20 p.m. on Thursday, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.

In a news conference Friday, Sheriff James L. Agnew said Stephens’ body was found guarded by “two very large, brindle-colored pitbull dogs.” He suspected that the dogs had been bred for fighting, Fox News reports.

Bethany Lynn Stephens’ body was discovered by Goochland deputies about 8:20 p.m. Thursday in a wooded area near the 2200 block of Manakin Road.

In an initial report, the medical examiner’s office said Stephens had defensive wounds on her hands and arms. But the first traumatic injury she suffered was to her throat and face, Agnew said.

“It appears she was taken to the ground, lost consciousness, and the dogs then mauled her to death,” he said, according to a local Fox affiliate.

It was not a homicide, Agnew said.

“It was an absolutely grisly mauling. In my nearly 40 years in law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” he said. “I hope I never see anything like it again.”

Stephens’ father had called the sheriff’s office after he hadn’t seen his daughter in a day.

While she had a Glen Allen address, Agnew said, Stephens grew up in Goochland and frequently walked the dogs in the wooded area where her body was found, which was near an old family farm.

 Her father went looking for his daughter and encountered the dogs aggressively protecting the body.

Agnew said it took deputies hours to wrangle the dogs, which he estimated each weighed as much as Stephens. Henrico County Animal Control was called for assistance and provided tranquilizers to subdue the dogs. The scene was strewn with blood and articles of clothing.

Agnew said deputies spent eight hours collecting more than 60 pieces of evidence.

The dogs are being held at Goochland County Animal Control.

Agnew said they were seeking to have the animals euthanized.

In my opinion these dogs were NOT Pitbulls. They look like Cane Corsos.

Rest in peace young lady.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
