LYONS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia doctor was found dead in a ditch last week and authorities believe she was killed by a pack of wild dogs.

Dr. Nancy Shaw was found by a Lyons police officer around 3 a.m. last Thursday, news outlets reported. Shaw practiced internal medicine in Vidalia.

Lyons Police Chief Wesley Walker said an officer was on patrol when he noticed a vehicle parked on the shoulder of the road. The car was running and the doors were open, Walker said.

The officer checked the area and saw Shaw’s body, police said.

Walker said he believes Shaw was attacked by a pack of wild dogs that had recently been roaming the area. However, Walker said the investigation was continuing.

Police were searching the area for the dogs but have not found them as of Friday.
