A Georgia doctor was found dead in a ditch after being attacked by a pack of wild dogs, authorities said.
The body of Dr. Nancy Shaw — who previously worked in Connecticut — was found at 3 a.m. Thursday after police in Lyons spotted her car pulled over on the wrong side of the road with the engine running and a door open.
“Got out of the patrol car to investigate and found a female that was deceased in the ditch,” Lyons Police Chief Wesley Walker told WTOC.
Autopsy results confirmed she died after being attacked by animals, police confirmed to the station, which gave no further details. Police are trying to find the roaming beasts, the report said.
Shaw, a longtime internist at Meadows Regional Medical Center, would often stop at the police station to make sure officers were doing well, the chief recalled.
“When I realized who it was, it was devastating,” Chief Walker told WTOC of the doctor whose residency was at the Hospital of Saint Raphael in New Haven.
“She was that kind of person. She was a caring person. She was a friend of ours.”
