A horrifying Thanksgiving for a Hardin County family, as they find out what killed one of their family members.
Karen Gillespie, 53, was searching out in the woods -- somewhat near her home -- for an old, one-room schoolhouse she wanted to take pictures of. Photography was her hobby.
Karen lived in Eastview, Kentucky, which is in western Hardin County. Her husband reported her missing Tuesday night, when she did not come back home after dark. Wednesday morning, search crews found her body in a field near the family's house. The coroner's office conducted an autopsy on Thanksgiving Day and says Karen died of head injuries caused directly by a dog mauling.
The dog's owner, Howard Miller, lives just down the street from the Gillespies. The Millers told us their American bull dog is a stray they were feeding and he was not fenced in.
Neither family wanted to speak on camera.
Karen leaves behind her husband, Stephen, and their son, Everett -- their only child. She was a retired director of Grayson County Public Library. A memorial service is set for Tuesday.
Kentucky State Police are investigating the incident and they don't know if any charges will be filed. Hardin County Animal Control has the dog.
