Man found dead in dinghy is identified

A man whose body was found Friday in an inflatable dinghy offshore of Islamorada near Shell Key has been identified.

The body was found by two boaters. There was no identification found with the body and there were no signs of foul play in evidence. On Saturday evening, the manager of Dominos Pizza in Tavernier told Sgt. Mark Coleman an employee, 67 year old Robert Newbold, had not shown up for work. Newbold fit the description of the body found, and was known to live on board a sailboat anchored offshore of Islamorada.

Today, the Medical Examiner’s Office made positive identification of the body as that of Newbold. His family was notified of his death.
