Burglar Versus Gator Yields Unsurprising Results (photo)

Matthew Riggins was reported missing on November 14th after a bungled burglary attempt in the Barefoot Bay neighborhood the evening before.

He and a pal were spotted that night by someone in the community, who notified police about the suspicious-acting men in black.

Officers and canines arrived and the pair of would-be thieves then fled the scene on foot together.

One of the suspects was subsequently apprehended, but Riggins had run toward a nearby lake … where he promptly disappeared.

Brevard County deputies and dive teams have been searching for the missing young burglar ever since.

He was finally found drowned with puncture wounds “consistent with an alligator attack.”
