45 year old Michael Ford had a bad day. Newsweek reports his family hadn’t heard from him in 4 days. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office found his remains in June. A nearby gator, almost 12 feet long, was considered to be the prime suspect. They found one of his hands and feet inside the gator. However, the gator will not be charged. The autopsy showed Michael overdosed on meth. The gator just was gnawing on his remains. They don’t know what Ford was doing in the area. Maybe he was fishing. Maybe in his state of mind he thought he’d cool off and take a dip.
