Missing Australian Man’s Remains Found In Crocodiles:
The police reported that they found the remains of an Australian man, identified as Kevin Darmody in local media, inside two crocodiles after he went missing on a fishing trip in crocodile-infested waters.
The 65-year-old victim was part of a group that had gone fishing in far north Queensland and had scared away a crocodile so they could start fishing, according to police.
Cairns police inspector Mark Henderson said that while fishing, Darmody’s companions heard him “yelling, screaming very loudly, followed by a large splashing of water.”
Rangers Shot and Killed two Crocodiles
Rangers shot and killed two crocodiles using rifles following the incident, Rangers found them from the upstream of the group’s fishing location within Lakefield National Park.
One crocodile measured approximately 4.2 meters and the other 2.8 meters.
Police have confirmed that examinations revealed human remains in both of the predators.
Henderson, the Cairns police inspector, described the incident as a “tragic, tragic ending.”
The victim, identified as a “very nice fellow” named Kevin Darmody, was from the rural town of Laura in north Queensland, which has a population of about 130 people, Henderson added.
Following the incident, Queensland state wildlife official Michael Joyce urged people to be cautious.
“This is croc country. If you are in water and especially if you are in Lakefield, which is declared specifically for crocodile conservation, you should expect crocodiles in that water. “
