KAUFMAN (CBSDFW.COM) - A woman was found dead at her home in Kaufman on Monday afternoon, and police believe that pit bulls are responsible for the killing. It was around 4:45 p.m. when authorities were called to a residence in the 1400 block of East First North Street.

When police arrived at the scene, they discovered 85-year-old Dorothy Hamilton dead in the living room of her home. Investigators also found a pair of aggressive pit bulls inside of the house. A statement released by the Kaufman Police Department on Tuesday stated, “It appeared that the animals had attacked Hamilton.”

Authorities said that the dogs were being held in a bedroom, but it looks as though they broke down the door in order to attack the woman.

The victim’s son had been keeping a group of pit bulls at the home for several months. A total of eight pit bulls — including the two dogs thought to have attacked Hamilton — were taken from the property. There have been no charges filed in the case at this time.

An autopsy will determine Hamilton’s exact cause of death.
