"Her brother waited a long time, but the victim didn’t arrive. Consequently, he contacted the victim’s husband, who revealed that Siriati had been missing since early morning. Subsequently, the husband embarked on a search for his wife and discovered her sandals on the forest road. Suspecting a snake attack due to the presence of snake tracks, he found the victim dragged about five meters from the spot," read the report in part.

He courageously killed the snake, retrieved her remains, and contacted the authorities.

Walenrang Police Chief, Adjunct Police Commissioner Idul, reported that the mother of five's body was discovered undamaged, except for a leg injury believed to be from a snake bite.
