The skeletal remains of a human body were found in a vacant lot on Summerland Key Monday afternoon.
Two men and a woman visiting the Florida Keys told Deputy Freddy Rodriguez they stopped at about 3 p.m. to explore a fenced empty lot at 23801 Overseas Highway. They said as they were looking around, they discovered the skeleton of a human. There was a stainless steel .38 caliber revolver next to the body. Some items found at the scene appeared to be male clothing.
The remains were turned over to the Medical Examiner’s Office for further investigation. Major Crimes detectives will be working with the ME’s office in an attempt to identify who the deceased is and how he/she may have died.
