• Composite sketch released of man whose naked body washed up on beach


    FLAGLER BEACH, Fla. - The body of a naked man washed up on a Central Florida beach.

    Flagler Beach Police Chief Dan Cody said Tuesday the man had been shot to death. The body was discovered by beachgoers on June 8. 

    Police don't know who the victim was or where he came from. Police believe he was in the water for three to five days.

    "I found a dead… a dead body," said a witness to the 911 operator.

    "Is it somebody that you know?" the operator asked.

    "No ma'am. We were walking down the beach, down the beach with my friend, and just found a dead person," said the caller.

    Cody said the body could have been dumped from a boat out at sea.

    The man weighed about 150 pounds, was 6-foot-2 and was between 50 and 60 years old. He had salt and pepper hair and brown eyes. Cody says there were no tattoos or other identifying marks.
