Authorities said they pulled a 12-foot gator from the water and found some human remains in its stomach.

The body of the victim, 47-year-old Shizuka Matsuki, was located at a lake Friday night, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

"The FWC will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident. We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Matsuki," said FWC spokesman Ron Klepper.
