Missing Mom Found Dead After Husband Sees Her Belongings Near Python with a Swollen Belly

The fifth recorded killing of a human by a python since 2017 took place Thursday when a woman from a central Indonesian village was killed.

According to CBS, the incident took place in Kalempang village in central Indonesia and involved a 16-foot-long python.

The woman who was killed was a mother of four children whose first name was given as Farida, according to an Agence France Presse report posted by Barron’s.

She was reported missing Thursday night when she did not return home as planned, village head Suardi Rosi said.

Her husband “found her belongings … which made him suspicious. The villagers then searched the area. They soon spotted a python with a large belly,” said Suardi,

“They agreed to cut open the python’s stomach. As soon as they did, Farida’s head was immediately visible,” he said.

Farida was found fully clothed inside the body of the snake.

According to a report in the Metro, the python had bitten her leg and suffocated her before swallowing her head first.

The report in the Metro quoted the woman’s husband, Noni, as saying he felt responsible for his wife’s fate.

“I am forever sorry that I let my wife go out alone. If I had been with her that day, the snake would not have dared to touch her,” he said.

“I feel sorry for the suffering she went through. I am sorry for our family,” he said.

Rosi said that finding the snake took several searchers.

“He found a snake with a large stomach. He immediately suspected that his wife had been eaten by the python. Several other villages then helped him to catch the python. The body of his wife was found in the stomach of a snake. She was taken away to his house before being buried,” he said.

CBS noted that reticulated pythons grab their prey with dozens of teeth to hold it in place, squeeze it to death and swallow it whole.

It noted that past fatal python attacks took place in 2017, 2018, 2022 and 2023.

Zoo Atlanta, which has the snakes, said that “while reticulated pythons have a reputation for being aggressive, they generally do not display aggression when handled regularly in zoological settings.”

“Despite heavy hunting pressures for the commercial skin trade, on top of opportunistic persecution by humans, this species manages to maintain relatively large populations even in heavily populated areas,” the zoo said.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
