The police were forced to stop investigating the murder after the alligator disappeared with the body of a dead man.
Police and firefighters rushed to the scene in Braille after the body of an unidentified man was seen floating in the river.
But they were puzzled when they could not find the body after arriving at the Arroio Fundo watercourse.
Later, videos appeared showing the alligator wandering around the body while it floats on the surface.

Later, the alligator dragged the man’s body to the bottom of the river.
More than 24 hours later, the body was found after the firefighters returned to search.
Firefighters said they were able to recover the body without any damage – despite the alligator still floating.
Authorities then took the body to the Medical Law Institute (IML) for an autopsy.
One firefighter told local media, “We are used to seeing alligators in the area, usually while rescuing other animals, so we already knew how to deal with similar situations.”

The investigation into the man’s death is ongoing, and there have been no further updates on the autopsy results or how much damage the alligator did after the corpse was dragged to the bottom.
Alligators usually drag their victims to the bottom to kill them by drowning, and store all the killed there to be eaten later.
However, it is believed that this time the corpse was mostly intact.
