Woman found dead from possible alligator attack in Florida pond

VALRICO, Fla. – A woman was found dead in a Florida retention pond Sunday night from a possible alligator attack, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the woman’s body was found in the water just after 8:40 p.m. in a retention pond behind the Landing Bar and Grill on Lynx Paw Trail in Valrico.

The body was recovered by HCSO’s Underwater Recovery Team. Investigators said alligators are known to frequent the pond where the woman was found.

Deputies said the woman had suffered injuries consistent with an alligator attack, but a cause of death is undetermined as crews continue to investigate.

The Medical Examiner’s Office will make an official ruling on the cause of death.

An alligator trapper was dispatched to the scene by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Sunday.

“What a tragic ending to the 4th of July holiday for this woman’s family and friends,” said Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister. “I want to thank our local partners for their cooperation with this investigation as we work to learn what led up to her death.”
