A disturbing story out of Pickens County tonight as authorities try to track a pack of wild dogs they believe may have killed a 96-year-old man and consumed his remains.

Israel Pope, Jr. was reported missing Monday night and police found his remains in a field on his property, about a quarter of a mile from his house.

Police believe Pope had been consumed by a pack of dogs authorities tracked to a den under an abandoned mobile home.

Investigators found pieces of Pope's clothing and what may have been human remains at the mobile home.

He said it was unclear whether the dogs killed Pope, or whether they found his body in the field and consumed it.
