OHIO COUNTY, K.Y. (NBC33) -- Right across the Indiana state line in Fordsville, Kentucky, police believe a group of wolf dogs ate the body of a missing woman.

67-year-old Patricia Ritz lived on the property with more than 50 wolf dogs and had not been seen for a week. This weekend investigators discovered a human skull and jawbone believed to be that or Ritz.

Authorities say the animals were malnourished and a few of them were dead.
