The Lyons Police Department is currently investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in the early morning hours of Thursday morning.  Lyons Police Chief Wesley Walker stated that one of his officers discovered the body while on patrol.

“Around 3 a.m. one of my officers was on routine patrol in the north end of town and came across a vehicle that was parked close to the shoulder of the road, running, with the door open.  He got out to investigate and found a female in the ditch that was deceased.  We identified that female as Dr. Nancy A. Shaw, 62 years of age with a Skyline Boulevard address,” said Walker.

Walker said, “The investigation is continuing but it appears from preliminary investigations that she was possibly attacked by an animal, probably some dogs that were seen in the area and caused the death of Dr. Shaw from those injuries.”

Walker added, “We are actively trying to locate some dogs that were seen running loose in the area around this same time to see if there is any evidence of that.  We do believe that a couple of the dogs do have collars on so we feel like they did belong to someone but haven’t had any luck yet.”

“We’ve asked for the medical examiner to do an autopsy to cover all the bases but it appears it was from injuries from an attack of an animal,” said Walker.

Chief Walker asks that residents of the area be careful and if they see any suspicious animals to call the Lyons Police Department.
