Mystery as human arm found in alligator's mouth as cops search infested waters for more body parts

A HUMAN arm was found in an alligator's mouth and now cops are searching infested waters for additional body parts.

The discovery was made in Martin County, Florida. Cops have descended upon the Hungryland Preserve in search of a body.

The remains reportedly belong to Dustin Davis Mills of St. Lucie County, cops announced on March 10.

The 42-year-old's identity was determined using fingerprints from his hand, which was found near "a large alligator that was guarding the body part," according to the medical examiner.

Abiologist on routine patrol spotted the gator with the arm in its mouth on Wednesday morning.

Since then, cops have allegedly found additional human remains about a mile from where the arm was located.

Search teams were deployed, including the Martin County Fire Rescue dive team.

According to WPBF, a sniper watched over the team as they searched for additional remains.

In addition, cadaver dogs and deputies on ATVs joined the search efforts, according to NBC2.

That area is infested with alligators and other wild animals, making search efforts difficult.
