From Tampa Bay Online:

_A man found Saturday floating near an alligator that had been feeding on his remains drowned, according to an autopsy Sunday. . . .

Though the man drowned, he still may be a victim of a gator attack.

“That doesn’t tell us if the alligator did it,” said Gary Morse, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Alligators usually drown large prey, he said._
