A 22-year-old burglary suspect drowned after being attacked by an alligator while trying to get away from police, Florida sheriff deputies said in a news release. Matthew Riggin told his girlfriend on the night of November 12 that he planned to go with another man to commit burglaries, Brevard County deputies said. Residents in the neighborhood spotted Riggins and called 911, alerting deputies that two men, dressed all in black, were walking behind houses in the area. When deputies arrived, they say both male suspects took off on foot. .. A missing persons report went out the next day, and deputies later recovered his body in a lake just north of the neighborhood. Deputies say an aggressive 11-foot long alligator was guarding the body.
