Chambers County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook reported the death of 59-year-old Christine Rollins of Liberty, Texas.
Sheriff Brian Hawthorne reports that early this morning the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting a deceased female discovered in the front yard of a home in the 4000 block of State Hwy 61 in the rural area of Anahuac, TX.
Sheriff’s deputies identified the decedent as Christine Rollins, 59, of Liberty, TX. Preliminary investigation reveals Rollins was the caretaker of an elderly couple who lives at the home. When Rollins didn’t show up at the normal time, the 84 year old homeowner went outside and found her laying in the yard between her vehicle and the home’s front door.
When deputies arrived they found Rollins deceased, with multiple injuries to her body. It appears that she has an injury to her head that is consistent with a fall, but she also has numerous injuries that appear to be animal related.
Chambers County Justice of the Peace Pct 1, Yale Devillier, is doing an inquest and has ordered a forensic autopsy to assist in determining cause of death.
“At this time detectives are unable to determine if she collapsed due to a medical condition and the fall caused the head injury, or if the animals may have caused the fall and contributed to her death. But, at this time, we have no reason to believe that there is any foul play involved in her death,” said Sheriff Brian Hawthorne.
