According to the news website detik.com, villagers and authorities in Southeast Sulawesi province found a python as they were searching for the 54-year-old woman, identified as Wa Tiba.
They only found her belongings and suspected that the snake might have swallowed her.
“The villagers who were suspicious brought the python back to the village and cut it open. She was found dead inside the snake with the body intact,” local police chief Agus Ramos said.
In March last year, a man was also swallowed whole at a palm oil plantation in West Sulawesi.
