“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.
It appears she was taken to the ground, lost consciousness, and the dogs then mauled her to death
It was an absolutely grisly mauling, In my 40 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. I hope I never see anything like it again.” Sheriff James Agnew
