The town in Indonesia is now wondering how a witch doctor “summoned” a saltwater crocodile to return the missing man.
The missing man, identified as Syarifuddin, 41 years old, was bathing in a river with his friends when the crocodile get and dragged him beneath the water in Berau, Indonesia, on Tuesday at 6:20 pm.
According to the local report, the victim’s relatives desperately searched in vain for him and it was assumed that he had been taken into the depths of the Lempake River when authority failed to find him.
Local villagers have reached a local black magic wizard who specialises in ‘crocodile witch craft’ and it’s claimed they cast a spell for Syarifuddin to be brought back alive.
Astonishingly, his full body is said to have emerged yesterday morning, and caught via video the crocodile itself, have returned the body.
In a video footage, the predator is purportedly seen floating to the banks with the naked body of Syarifuddin in its jaws as the gathered crowd looks on.
The crocodile then dropped off the corpse sparking suggestions the saltwater crocodile, which can grow up to 5.2m as an adult, had actually been guarding the victim’s body from other predators seeing as it hadn’t been eaten.
