Florida authorities find remains of woman killed by alligator

Authorities believe a 12-foot, 6-inch alligator attacked and killed a woman who was walking her dogs in Davie, Florida, on Friday.

A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman told Local 10 the autopsy suggested the woman was attacked by the alligator, believed to be about 3.8 metres long.

As we previously told you, a witness told the police this morning he saw Shizuka standing near the water at one minute, and in the next she disappeared. The couple did not live in the neighborhood, but he said she liked to find different places to walk the dogs.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the dogs, but not the woman. Dale Engle told the Sun-Sentinel. The woman's dogs wouldn't leave the pond, said police, who confirmed the woman's identity. Another woman said that her poodle vanished near the lake on Christmas and she suspected the dog had been eaten.

Residents in the area said that alligators were known to be in the water, and they wouldn't let their dogs walk without a leash because of this.

Divers have found the body of a woman killed by an alligator while walking her dogs in South Florida.
