Man found dead in dinghy offshore

Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the death of a man found in an inflatable dinghy offshore of Islamorada.

Detectives say there were no obvious signs of foul play found on the body. Two people on a flats boat in the vicinity of Shell Key found him at noon on Friday and called the Sheriff’s Office.

The U.S. Coast Guard responded and brought the dinghy and it’s occupant back to shore. An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of his death. He had no identification, and detectives do not yet know who he is. He is described as a white male, approximately 5’10” tall, 180 pounds.
