Police kill alligator after it was found with missing woman’s remains in mouth

A Houston police officer shot and killed an alligator after it was found with the remains of a missing woman in its mouth Tuesday, officials said.

Houston officers were searching for the woman, who was believed to be in her 60s, Tuesday morning when they discovered the animal in the Horsepen Bayou outside Houston.

An officer then fatally shot the alligator “to prevent it from doing more damage to the remains,” in its mouth, Houston police said.

Police recovered the woman’s remains from the area, authorities said, and are waiting on autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

It is not clear whether the alligator killed the woman or if the woman was already dead when the alligator came upon her, police said.

The incident is under investigation.
