— Wildlife officers captured an alligator Saturday they believe was responsible for fatally attacking a woman while she was out jogging.

The 9-foot, 6-inch alligator was trapped just under the bridge where Yovy Suarez Jimenez, 28, was last seen, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Dani Moschella said.

Two human arms were found inside the alligator's belly, Moschella said.

Authorities still aren't sure how the alligator attacked Suarez. Witnesses had reported seeing a woman matching Suarez's description dangling her feet over the water's edge on Tuesday, but no one saw an attack.
