See How A Man Was Killed By A 13ft Alligator After It Swallowed Him

The bones, hair and flesh “of a Brazilian farmer who vanished while working near a river” has been found inside a monster 13ft alligator.

The fearsome beast, also known as a black caiman, is believed to have attacked Adilson de Oliveira, 47, as he camped on the banks of the Javae River, in Tocantins, northern Brazil.

Tests results released yesterday by Palmas Forensic Medical Institute suggest the farm worker was eaten around a fortnight ago.

Investigators found bones, skin, hair, flesh and plastic bags in the reptile’s stomach after the creature was hunted down and slaughtered by locals, a day after the victim went missing.

Mr Oliveira, from Belo Horizonte, South-East Brazil, was working on a farm in the area and had set up camp with other labourers when he is believed to have been dragged into the murky water on Friday, July 28.

The dangerous predators, which live in the Amazon jungle and surrounding forest areas, can grow to the size of some of the largest crocodiles on earth.

According to workmates, the victim was fishing late at night near the river’s edge when he vanished.

The alert was raised several hours after Mr Oliveira went missing as the incident is believed to have happened overnight – meaning his absence went unnoticed.

Fire officer Sergeant Ronaldo Barbosa, who was involved in the recovery mission, said: “The campsite owner told me he had gone to sleep earlier and woke up around 10pm on Thursday night (July 27).

“He said he didn’t remember seeing any sign of Adilson at that point.

“He went looking for him and found his flip-flops and a lighter near the river but as he wasn’t sure what had happened he went back to bed.”

Firefighters called to the scene took nearly 24 hours to arrive because of the difficulties in accessing the remote area.

Over 30 officers searched for nearly two days, from Saturday through to Sunday morning, up and down the riverbank and inside the dense forest.

The waterway was scoured by boat and firefighters risked their lives diving into the murky alligator-infested waters to search for the man’s remains.
