HARRAH, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities released new details about the case of a woman’s body being found in Harrah.
Earlier this week, deputies with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office were called to a home near S.E. 44th and Catfish Dr. in Harrah.
Investigators say they found the body of a 61-year-old woman.
On Tuesday, Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III announced that they have identified the victim as 61-year-old Anita Mears.
He says that her case is not being investigated as a homicide.
Initially, officials thought she had been stabbed multiple times.
However, the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner responded to the scene and determined she was attacked and killed by multiple dogs.
“That’s a sad way to die, to pass away. Our hearts go out to her family,” said Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III.
Mears’ dog was also injured in the attack.
At this point, they say they do not know where the dogs are located.
Officials say they do not know whether they were wild dogs or neighborhood dogs.
As a result, deputies are warning people to stay away from any pack of dogs that may be roaming the area.
