Authorities said on Saturday that a 41-year-old woman’s body found in the jaws of a 13-foot alligator in Largo, Florida, had been identified.

What Happened?

The victim, later identified as Sabrina Peckham, was found dead in a waterway just before 2 p.m. local time on Friday, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies were called to an unincorporated area of Largo, which is in the Tampa Bay region.

JaMarcus Bullard, a neighbour, told CBS station WTSP that he found the body in an alligator’s mouth and dialled 911.

“It (the alligator) lifted up out of the water with the body, like it was just clamped onto it, and it kind of swam backwards, like, under to the bottom of the canal to the other side,” said Bullard. “I just couldn’t believe it was real,” he continued.

The alligator was “humanely killed” by responding deputies and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials, according to the sheriff’s office. The remains of Peckham were later retrieved from the canal by a dive crew.

The circumstances leading up to the discovery were not further described. According to the sheriff’s office, the Pinellas County medical examiner is still trying to identify how she died and what caused it, and the investigation is still ongoing.

A missing 2-year-old boy was discovered dead in the mouth of an alligator in nearby St. Petersburg in March, two days after the boy’s mother was discovered killed in their flat. Later, the boy’s father was accused with two charges of murder in connection with their demise.
