HODGES, SC – More details are being released concerning the Tuesday night mauling that left a 65-year-old woman dead.

Officials say that Betty Ann Chapman Todd was watching her grandchildren at her son’s home in Hodges while her son and his wife went to dinner when the pit bull attacked her. One of the children called their parents, who in turn contacted 911. Reports indicate that the children then left and went to a neighbor’s house.

When deputies arrived at the residence they were greeted at the door by a black and white pit bull that had blood on its mouth, chest and paws, according to an incident report. Officials said that the son and his wife then returned to the residence and the dog ran into a bedroom where it was secured until animal control officers arrived and secured it in a cage. The dog was later taken to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter to be quarantined until the conclusion of the investigation.

Officials said that EMS personnel found Todd to be unresponsive with puncture wounds to her head, face and neck. Attempts to resuscitate her were unsuccessful, according to reports.

Officials said that Todd’s son told deputies that his mother had been to the home numerous times around the animal without the dog ever showing any signs of aggression toward her.

Officials with the coroner’s office said that autopsy results showed Todd’s cause of death to be neck and spinal injuries sustained in the attack.

Officials with the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office do not expect any criminal charges to be filed in the case.
