(WFIE) Kentucky authorities believe a group of wolf-dogs ate the body of a missing Ohio County woman.
The Ohio County Sheriff's Department says they believe Patricia Ritz lived on her property with more than 50 wolf-dog hybrids.
Neighbors called authorities on Saturday to say she hadn't been seen for about a week.
Sheriff's deputies went to Ritz's residence for a welfare check and found a human skull, and human jawbone.
Both were presumed to be Ritz's.
An official with the Ohio County Sheriff's Department believe there's a chance some of the wolf-dogs may have eaten part of Ritz's body sometime after she died.
Officials have no been able to recover any other remains.
