The hapless mother girlfriend, Elayne Stanley, ped to death after being attacked by her pets, American bulldogs. Elayne Stanley’s boyfriend said, “The animals were ‘never aggressive’ as friends say they could have been ‘spooked’ by a row between the mother, Elayne Stanley, and her daughter(21 years old)”.
Police were called to the terraced property of mother-of-three Elayne Stanley in Widnes, Cheshire, at 5.15 pm on Tuesday after the two huge dogs, DJ and Billy, attacked her.
One of Elayne Stanley’s friends told how the crazy animals could have unleashed the attack after an argument between Elayne Stanley and her daughter Louise, before piercing the part-time care assistant, who could not manage to carry on and ‘bled out’ at the moment.
Elayne Stanley’s neighbors suspect Elayne Stanley’s boyfriend, Paul Leigh, to be the owner of the two dogs but speaking at his home in Runcorn, Cheshire, yesterday evening, boyfriend Paul said the animals belonged to her.

Ms. Elayne Stanley had posted photos of two dogs (pictured) on social media. Today her partner, who is saddened by girlfriend’s death, said that he’d never seen Elayne Stanley’s dogs being aggressive.
Mr. Paul Leigh further added, “Elayne Stanley and her daughter Louise were having an argument but I don’t know exactly what happened. The police are still investigating.
“Billy and DJ were both Elayne Stanley’s dogs as she’s had them since they were basically pups. The dogs were never aggressive or acted like this. I can’t believe it. I never thought I’d be putting my partner in the ground”.
“We’ve been together for four years, and we’re both dog lovers. I was two minutes from seeing my dad in a coma when I got the call about Elayne Stanley’s death”.
A close friend of Elayne Stanley Bev Hall(39 years old) paid tribute to her friend of 22 years, who was a triumphant mother to her daughters, and revealed she and partner Jay attempted to draw back the insane dogs before Elayne Stanley ‘bled out’ in her living room due to serious injuries.
Police rushed to the Elayne Stanley’s house after being called by ambulance paramedics who found part-time care assistant Elayne Stanley, who also had twin 12-year-old daughters, in a serious condition and strived to treat her before she died at the moment.
DJ was shot at the house after officers attempted to detain and pacify him, resulting in failure, and Billy remains in a secure kennel, police confirmed.
A woman died in this residential street in Widnes, Cheshire following a dog attack, police said.
Bev, who lives opposite Elayne Stanley, said, “Elayne was at home with her daughters, she was arguing with one of her daughters”.
“We were here putting the tea on and next, her daughter Louise was screaming for help saying, ‘The dogs are attacking mom’. We both dropped everything and rushed over barefooted.
Dogs suspected of being banned are typically seized by the police, and they will be spending the rest of the time in kennels until they are treated.
‘The living room door was closed and Elayne was behind it so we couldn’t get in. I could hear a dog growling and scratching. We threw all sorts and budged on the windows to try and distract the dogs”.
‘Then the police were called, my partner and a couple of the neighbors started throwing bricks at the dogs from the side door. Once the dogs were in the back garden, my partner locked them out”.
“I have known Elayne for 22 years, she is more than a friend – she’s the godmother to my children”.
“By the time the paramedics came, there was nothing they could do, she had already bled out”.
“I have never expected those dogs to savage. My kids have slept with those dogs and used them as pillows, it is hard to believe”.
“They used to bark when you went in, and Elayne had started shutting her curtains because they would bark on people passing by. But I have never known the dogs to act with brutality”.
‘The police tried to calm down DJ three or four times but he wouldn’t calm down. He had the taste of blood so he went for the police officers, and they had to put him down. He was shot twice but Billy, the girl dog, was appeased and taken away”.
On Facebook, Elayne Stanley, who was 5feet 9inches, wrote formerly the dogs had previously been ‘p****d off’ when she wouldn’t let them play with one of her children’s teddy bears.
Neighbors said Ms. Elayne Stanley’s daughter raised the alarm, calling ‘The dogs are attacking mom’.
In another post, a friend appeared to refer to the dogs as ‘the terrible twins’. A neighbor, who asked not to be named, said, “Elayne kept herself to herself but she was a nice enough woman. She always said hello when she walked past”.
“I was sitting upstairs, and I just heard a girl shouting ‘DJ’. I heard the girl screaming ‘I can’t get to her’ and the next thing, someone was kicking the door in.
“She was only a young woman, she didn’t really stand a chance. They always seemed like they were nice enough dogs but they were never out of control this time”.
The terraced house in the street has been cordoned off as police continue to investigate.
“You don’t know what’s provoked it. I’ve heard people saying there was an argument but you just don’t know”.
“The police must have shot them because I heard the shots, it sent our two dogs crazy”.
In a statement, Cheshire Police Detective Inspector, Ian Whiley, said yesterday, “We understand people in the local community will be concerned when they hear about what has happened”.
“But I would like to reassure residents that we are doing all that we can to establish the full circumstances peacefully”.
“However, at this stage, it is believed that the dogs were known to the woman and were living at the address”.
“This has been an extremely distressing incident and our thoughts are with the woman’s family at this difficult time”.
