On the morning of March 8th, a commercial fisherman radioed the park and reported a body with a yellow flotation device on it floating in the water. Rangers and the captain of the M/V Fort Jefferson headed toward the location and found the victim. The body was recovered and lifted onto the FortJefferson and taken to Key West for transfer to the medical examiner there. The victim is believed to be an illegal immigrant from Cuba. The Coast Guard subsequently advised the park that they?d interdicted two boats from Cuba during the early hours of March 8th. The occupants of one boat reported that they?d had a death on board and that the person had been ?buried at sea.? When the Coast Guard intercepted the second boat, four of its occupants jumped into the ocean. It?s believed that the victim was one of the four. A search is underway for the remaining three people.
