Miami-Dade Police are trying to learn more about a grim discovery this morning – the body of a female white adult was found in the water and was retrieved by marine patrol officers. WSVN-TV reported the discovery was made by a fisherman near the Miami Seaquarium.
“We don’t know how. We don’t know where, and we don’t have a name,” said Miami-Dade Police Det. Andre Martin. He said the body is being examined by the medical examiner while detectives try to learn more.
He said at this point, suicide has not been ruled out.
Even if there were specific injuries that might indicate a homicide, standard police procedure would be to withhold those details as they would typically only be known to the assailant.
