There's a peculiar homicide investigation underway in Florida now after two alligators were reportedly found eating a human corpse.

Two fisherman found the body in a canal Monday. Even though police say it appears the alligators consumed part of the body, it's still being investigated as a homicide. A police captain told the Sun Sentinel the alligators aren't suspected of killing the person.

"Could it be a homicide, could it be a suicide, could it have been natural, a fisherman? We don't know," an officer told WFOR.

Officials say it looks like the body had been in the water for a while before it was found. They're currently working to identify the remains.
