In an emotional interview with WATE on Tuesday, the Bells County man recalled the nightmarish assault that brutally ended a 38 12 months love story.
“She was a kind-hearted girl. I bear in mind the final time I kissed her on the brow not realizing that may be my final kiss,” he mentioned.
Lorraine was outdoors the couple’s house feeding their cats, one thing she did each day, when she was attacked by their neighbor’s two pit bulls.
Saylor advised the outlet that when he went to test on his spouse one of many canines pounced on him.

Saylor mentioned after the assault he discovered his spouse mendacity on their porch. She was pronounced useless on the scene.
“She was weak and about 105 kilos,” he mentioned. “I mentioned, ‘Oh God! Oh no! Please no!’ I checked her pulse simply in case.”
The assault left Saylor with greater than 20 bites on his arm and head. His left arm is in a solid.
Saylor mentioned he blames his neighbor Johnny Dale Lankford, the proprietor of the canines, for his spouse’s loss of life.
“I am certain he’ll see this,” he mentioned. “I hope does. He is accountable for my spouse’s loss of life.”
Lankford, who was already within the Bell County Detention Heart for an unrelated incident, was charged with harboring a vicious animal.
