Man found eaten by alligator actually died of meth overdose

An alligator didn't kill a man whose parts were found in its stomach.

FORT MEADE, Fla. (AP) - Florida officials say a man who was found partially eaten by an alligator actually died of a meth overdose.

According to an autopsy report from a central Florida medical examiner, Michael Glenn Ford II had methamphetamine in his system when he died, and that was the cause of his death.

The body of the 45-year-old was found in a canal in June in Polk County.

Ford’s hand and foot were found inside the gator’s stomach.
