It wasn't immediately clear how the man died, but an 9-foot-3-inch long alligator may have been responsible.

The reptile has been killed and is being stored in a cooler awaiting a coroner's examination for human hair or skin, said Brian Wood, owner of All American Gator Products, which is storing the gator for now. It will then be incinerated or buried, he said.

The man was allegedly burglarizing a vehicle in a resort parking lot Thursday and ran when police arrived, said Dexter Lehtinen, one of the Miccosukee tribe's police legal advisors. His name was not released.

The man's body was recovered Friday by tribal police divers from the lake at the Miccosukee Resort and Convention Center west of Miami. A sign there warns people: "Danger Live Alligators."

Another man was also arrested. The tribe, which is not obligated to follow Florida's open records laws, declined to release his name. Without a name, the Miami-Dade state attorney's office was unable to comment on whether the man has been charged.

This guy is the only fatal attack of 2007. Again, dramatically higher rate of being killed by a car accident, or a lightning strike. This dumba$$ jumped in the gator infested pond in the middle of the night. :rolleyes:
