Man’s body found in the water just off Stock Island Friday night, more details expected soon
MONROE COUNTY, Florida – On Friday night, a man’s body was found in the water near Stock Island.
Adam Linhardt, a spokesman for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, said that deputies were called around 7:30 p.m. because someone had gone overboard a boat and couldn’t be found.
Linhardt said that a good Samaritan found the man dead, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission took him to the Key Haven boat ramp.
The Key West Police Department also helped with the search, according to the people in charge.
Detectives said they don’t think there was any foul play, but they are still waiting for the autopsy results.
Authorities say that they won’t be able to figure out who the man is until his next of kin are contacted.
