Pit bull attack kills woman, injures man on Christmas Eve

Johnny Lankford

A woman has been identified after she was killed when two dogs attacked her and her husband Sunday morning in the Wiser Branch area of Bell County. "The deputies determined that the dogs did not belong to the couple".

Bell County Coroner, Jay Steele, told WYMT the woman who was killed in the dog attack is Lorraine Saylor, 66.

42, was arrested and charged with harboring a vicious animal after two of his pitbulls attacked and killed Lorraine Brock Saylor, 66, in Kentucky on December 24, 2017.

Steele said one dog died while the other got away. Johnny Saylor retrieved a.22-caliber pistol from inside his house and went back outside, where he shot one of the dogs in the chest as it jumped at him. Authorities have asked residents in the Arjay community to be on the lookout for the injured brown dog.

He fatally shot one of the pit bulls as it lunged at him, but the other managed to run off and is still missing, according ot the news station.

He already is in the Bell County Detention Center after being arrested Friday on charges of second-degree assault, domestic violence and unlawful imprisonment.

Johnny Saylor suffered injuries to his head and arm while fending the animals off.

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

"The ambulance kept trying to get him to go to the hospital but he wouldn't leave until I took her into our care", said Steele.

If you see a pit bull matching that description, in the Arjay or surrounding area, call Bell County dispatch immediately at 606-337-6174 or 911.

An autopsy on Saylor is scheduled for this week. "She was just a sweetheart" said Steele.
