Now a 9-foot-long alligator was captured in the same Florida lake where one was found holding remains of a human body in its mouth, officials said. Lakeland police said the gator’s stomach will be examined to determine whether it swallowed any parts of the adult male body. If not, the lake will be searched again for other gator.
