Florida Officers Find Alligators Eating Dead Body

May 31, 2016  | 

Investigators from the Davie (FL) Police Department returned to a scene at the edge of the Everglades on Tuesday – the place where a body was found being eaten by two alligators, reports the Sun Sentinel.

Officers were searching the canal bank for any clues that could lead to the identity of the person, or help determine how the person got there, said Davie Police Capt. Dale Engle.

"We are treating this as a homicide until we find otherwise," said Engle.

The alligators are not suspected of killing the person, whose gender had not been determined, Engle said.

wow, investigated many a homicide/death but got to say never had one like this in AZ. We have the occasional "desert drop" or buried body with post death animal "involvement" but wow, not only "actors" involved but seen by police in the process of destroying the evidence is a new one on the likes of me. Good luck with the evidence portion of this one brothers.
