The body of 37-year-old Russian tourist Sergey Lykhvar was recovered in an isolated spot on the coast of Minyaifun island, four days after he had been reported missing.

One of Lykhvar’s hands was missing and there was a distinctive bite-mark on his hip. The head of the local search & rescue service, Pracetuo Budiarto, informed press that a large saltwater crocodile had been spotted close to where the body was discovered.

“We believe he was killed by a crocodile judging from the missing body parts and the extent of his injuries,” he said, adding that the Russian had been found in a location made dangerous by its strong currents and sharp rocks. Lykhvar was said to have gone off to snorkel alone, although he had normally been accompanied by a guide.
