When Siriati failed to return home, her concerned husband, Adiansa, started searching with the help of relatives. Adiansa discovered her slippers and pants about 500 meters from their home. Not far from this spot, he encountered a python with a noticeably oversized belly, raising suspicions. With the assistance of villagers, they cut open the snake and found Siriati’s lifeless body inside.


Local authorities reported that the snake had likely constricted and paralyzed Siriati before consuming her. The attack left visible bite marks on her leg. This marks the second fatal python attack in South Sulawesi within a month. Just weeks prior, another woman was found dead inside a python.
