BAY CITY, Mich. – Mid-Michigan police say a woman found dead inside a Bay City home had been killed by one or more pet dogs.

Officers from the Bay City Department of Public Safety were called to a mobile home park Friday and found 41-year-old Brandy Joy O’Dell dead inside a residence.

An autopsy performed by the Bay County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that O’Dell had died “from several bites made by one or more dogs that were pets.”

Police say two “pit bull type dogs” were removed from the home and taken to animal control.

The dogs are being housed at the Bay County Animal Services and Adoption Center. Supervisor Craig Goulet says the two dogs are pit bulls and it’s unclear what will happen to them.
