Burglar Found in Alligator's Stomach

Matthew Riggins was attempting to steal from homes when police came around. So, he hid in a lake in Barefoot Bay, Florida.

In addition, he called his girlfriend to say he was being chased by police. Yet, he never returned home and was reported missing the next day. Later, rescuers found his body in the lake. They tried to pull it from the water but were almost attacked by a large alligator.

The alligator was later killed, and Riggins' hand and foot were found in its stomach. Resident Laura Farris said, "He hid in the wrong place."

The night of his death, he told his girlfriend he was going to steal from homes. His body was found 10 days later.
