Australian wildlife police believe the remains could be a missing angler.

That angler was snatched from his boat last Saturday while fishing with his family on the South Alligator River in Kakadu National Park.

The man’s wife and daughter in-law drove nearly two hours to find help, while the son stayed behind to search.

On Sunday, wildlife officers tracked down and killed a 15.4-foot crocodile that fit the description of the attacker.

They found human remains in its stomach. Police are still testing the remains, but they believe they are what’s left of the fisherman.

This is the second fatal crocodile attack in Kakadu this year. A 12-year-old boy was killed and his friend was mauled by a croc in January while swimming in the park, according to the Associated Press.

Another attack occurred last August, when an Australian crocodile ate a man swimming in a river during a birthday party, according to the BBC.
