Body of Shizuka Matsuki Found After Likely Alligator Attack in Florida

Police say they've found the body of a 47-year-woman they say was the victim of an apparent alligator attack in South Florida.

"After an initial necropsy, evidence was found that indicates that the victim of this incident was bitten by the alligator that was captured earlier today", FWC spokesman Robert Klepper said. "Human remains" were retrieved from the animal, according to a Friday report from the Miami Herald, who cited authorities.

In Broward County in May 2006, a 28-year-old woman was killed by an alligator at the North New River Canal in Sunrise, the FWC said.

They added that the fatal event will be investigated.

Matsuki, who lived in the nearby city of Plantation, was seen by a witness walking two dogs near the lake at the park on Friday before she suddenly vanished.

One of the dogs was found with a fresh wound, but Matsuki was missing.

The man "went to the area where he thought that they had been walking, and he immediately spotted an alligator", said Detective Viviana Gallinal. Dale Engle told the newspaper.

The nature park is popular among dog walkers and has two large bodies of water. Only her barking dogs remained at the waterfront of Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park. Animal control took the dog.

"The first thing you think that a gator is going to grab you and grab your dog", said Sharon Estupinan. Despite putting up quite the resistance against the trapper and inexperienced officers, the 8-foot alligator was eventually blindfolded, bound and muzzled.

According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, the state has averaged five unprovoked alligator bites yearly since 1948. The most recent death occurred in 2016, when a 2-year-old boy playing near the water's edge at a Walt Disney World resort was killed.
