    They mentioned comparing bite marks to the 5 alligators they caught, but didn't make it clear if it would be a comparison to Lane or his father.

    Yes. They said they would be comparing bite marks to determine if they have killed the gator already.

    Body was found about 10 to 15 yards out, and about 6 feet deep.

    I missed the presser :( has the ID been confirmed then, since he was intact? Wondering if it is time to move this thread :(

    Sheriff was asked if others were in the water, and if what the child was doing was permissable. He said no others in the water, and he thought it was permissable.

    Yes. It's easy for me to say this, and I realise the actual blessing would be the child being alive, but I think this is a great blessing for the family. To have a body that looks like their son that they can bury with dignity is so much better than what potentially could have happened.

    My opinion: Disney regularly removes alligators from the lake. The child was doing what children do... I just can't see placing blame here.

    it seem slike a morbid thing to say but if I couldn't have my child back, I at least want ALL of him back for my closure.

    I think this story is horrifying, and mysterious.

    BBM. Agreed, that gives no indication of gators, which Disney might be trying not to scare people, as it's "the happiest place on Earth".

    I'm about to read; forgive me if this has been posted...
    I have prayed for peace all day...
    And I hope this is as it appears. Unlike Maddie.

    All of the frantic activity that occurred just after the child was grabbed must have been enough to run the alligator off permanently.

    They just followed up on Fox News by saying that the boys body was not found in the same area from which he was grabbed. He was found just offshore in an area some distance away.

    I talked with a friend today who goes to the military "resort". Something Green? She said it is right next to this hotel in Disney. She said the military place has alligator signs all over , but she does not think Disney did. Even though she was staying right next door to Disney with the signs, she never dreamed about Disney having gators.

    Being a Californian who has set foot in Florida exactly once, and that was to board a cruise ship- I know in theory that gators exist in Florida. I thought swamps. I did not know that Disney World was built next to a lagoon where gators swim!!!

    Wow! I was surprised to learn of the size (average 13 ft.) and weight (average 790 lbs.) of an adult alligator. Articles say they prey on many animals including deer and bears! After reading a few articles I am amazed there are not MORE incidents than there have been.
