|Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensioner
Human remains have been found inside a crocodile that is believed to have killed a pensioner in Queensland last week. The 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile was captured on Monday night at the Mowbray River near Craiglie in northeast Australia, close to where Anne Cameron went missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas seven days ago. The 79-year-old is thought to have become disorientated on a walk and wandered into dense bushland. Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. Wildlife officers set traps to try to catch the creature that is believed to have killed Ms Cameron. The captured animal was examined in Cairns on Tuesday, with human remains found inside.

Isabella Eggins, a granddaughter of Ms Cameron, said last week the family feared she had died in tragic circumstances. “It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my mother Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances,” Ms Eggins said on Facebook. Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres long and weigh more than a tonne, are a common feature of the vast continent's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year. A series of crocodile attacks in the region in recent years has prompted calls for the state government to order a cull – a move that has so far been rejected. Ms Cameron's family also said they did not want to see any crocs culled. "The crocodiles... are not responsible for being crocodiles, and doing what crocodiles do," her son Craig Eggins said, according to the Cairns Post.
