In Barreirinha, a municipality in the state of Amazonas, Brazil, fishermen recovered a corpse of a tattooed man from the water. The corpse was partially devoured by wildlife, and according to the fishermen, they tore it out from the mouth of an alligator.
I think they’re full of shit and are making the dramatic story up. An alligator would likely cause more damage to the body, in particular the skeleton, as it has jaws strong enough to chew though bones. This looks closer to what we’ve seen fishes do to corpses in Brazilian rivers.
The corpse was identified as that of 23 year old Thiago Carvalho, who had been charged with attempted murder in the city of Boa Vista do Ramos, after nearly killing partner of his ex wife – Felipe Neptune. Since then, he has been a fugitive and was wanted by the military and civil police.
