LAURENS COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – The Laurens County Coroner’s Office said a woman died after she was allegedly mauled to death by dogs in Gray Court.
On Tuesday, sheriff’s office officials said deputies responded to Allegra Lane in Gray Court, where they found a deceased woman.
The sheriff’s office said several dogs were removed from the location.
Chief Deputy Coroner Patti Canupp identified the woman killed at Jacqueline Nicole Robinson, 32, of Gray Court.
Canupp said it appears that her cause of death was due to being mauled by dogs.
A neighbor told 7News the dogs ran loose and were aggressive. Toshianna Bennett, who lives near the scene, said she believes there were five or six of them.
“The dogs, they didn’t ever bother me or my kids or my aunt,” Bennett said. “Some of them was friendly, and some of them is mean and bark at you and growl at you sometimes.”
A spokesperson with the Sheriff’s Office did not respond to questions about what would become of the dogs.
“When I heard the news it shocked me because like usually when she walk through the area the dogs usually bark at her, but I ain’t never seen the dogs jump on her or nothing like that,” Bennett said.
Bennett said her prayers are with Robinson’s family.
“She was like a sweet and a loving person to me,” Bennett said.
The case is still under investigation at this time.
