Laura Hurst, 36, was found unconscious last night on the floor of her home in the northern city of Oxford here, with a snake wrapped around her neck, Indiana police sergeant Kim Riley said.

Individuals who found the woman managed to loosen the snake’s neck but paramedics failed to rescue the victim, Riley said. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

“The woman was obviously surrounded by snakes. We didn’t know the truth until the autopsy was performed”, Riley told the Journal & Courier.

The house has about 140 snakes with 20 of them owned by Hurst, who cares for them and visits the reptiles twice a week, Riley said. The homeowner is renovating his home to accommodate the collection of snakes.

Riley said the reptile was placed in a cage and kept inside the building. Property records show the home is owned by Donald Munson, Sheriff Benton County.

Munson told the newspaper he met Hurst and described the woman’s death as tragic.

Munson told the Journal & Courier for a story in 2001, when he was a county sheriff’s deputy, that he bred snakes for sale.
