MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – An investigation is underway after the body of nude man washed ashore on Miami Beach.
Since the man, described as being in his 20s, was naked he didn’t have any identification on him, according to police spokesman Bobby Hernandez. The body was found on the beach at 25th Street around 2 a.m.
Hernandez said investigators don’t think the man was homeless and are waiting for the results of an autopsy which will determine how he died. They are also checking to see if anyone has reported him as missing.
Investigators don’t know if the man lived here or was just visiting for Spring Break or possibly the upcoming Ultra Music Festiva, according to Hernandezl.
As to how he ended up in the water, Hernandez said there are a number of possibilities including he may have gone for a late night swim in the nude; he may also have fallen or been pushed off a bridge or boat.
