A woman in Pickett County died Wednesday after being attacked by a pack of dogs, police say.
Deputies responded to the call Tuesday around 5 p.m. in the 100 block of Evans Lane in Pall Mall, TN.
Pickett County Sheriff Dana Dowdy confirmed that 88-year-old Bessie Jill Peterson was attacked. She was airlifted to Vanderbilt Medical Center where she passed away.
Officials believe there were six dogs that allegedly belonged to a neighbor.
Earlier reports said that Peterson was attacked by a Pitbull, which was not the case.
Sheriff Dowdy has requested for the District Attorney’s Office to aid in the investigation.
