Christine Rollins Bio
Christine Rollins was 59 years old woman from Texas, who was attacked in Anahuac, east of Houston, outside a home where she worked as a caregiver to an older woman.
Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne told reporters on Monday: “In my 35 years I will tell you it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.”
The victim was found by the 84-year-old woman she worked for after failing to show up for her shift on Sunday.
Wild Boars Killed Christine
Christine Rollins’s mutilated body was discovered on Sunday morning by the 84-year-old woman who had been waiting for Rollins to arrive.
Police said Christine had arrived at around 6 AM while it was still dark, and had locked her car, but had been attacked before she made it to the house.
After an autopsy on Monday afternoon, Pathologist Dr. Selly Rivers officially ruled the death as “sanguination due to feral hog assault.”
Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said investigators initially believed it was a crime scene, but quickly realized it was an animal attack due to the bites.
While dogs were the apparent suspect, Sheriff Hawthorne said, “a lot of things didn’t add up”; detectives suspected a hog attack but didn’t want to announce it until the medical examiner had confirmed the grim news.
“Unbelievably tragic… this is a sporadic incident,” he said, adding that less than six had ever been reported in the United States.
“I don’t know how many we’ve had in Texas; I hope we never have another one in Chambers County.”
