A mother was purportedly choked to death by a gigantic eight-foot python in a home loaded up with 140 snakes, police said.
Laura Hurst, 36, was discovered dead with the snake folded over her neck in a home in Battle Ground, Indiana on Wednesday night, October 30.
The house is allegedly possessed by Benton County Sheriff Don Munson and is set up explicitly for the snake gathering.
As per an announcement by Indiana State Police representative Sergeant Kim Riley, Hurst kept around 20 of her own snakes in the home and for the most part visited it two times every week.
Sheriff Munson lives nearby to the reptile house and supposedly observed Hurst at the home on Wednesday evening. Riley said an individual discovered Hurst soon thereafter on the floor with a reticulated python inexactly folded over her neck. Metro UK reports.
“She seems to have been choked by the snake. We don’t have the foggiest idea about that for a reality until after the examination,” Riley told the Journal Courier.
Munson considered Hurst’s demise a “sad mishap with loss of human life,” including that he was “by and large completely helpful with everyone.”
Specialists said they intend to lead a dissection on Friday.
