CCSO Conducts Death Investigation

Collier County Sheriff’s deputies are conducting a death investigation after fishermen found human remains in Goodland.

Just after 2 p.m. on Saturday deputies responded to S.R. 92 just north of the Goodland bridge, 6 miles south of U.S. 41 when fishermen reported finding what appeared to be human remains in the mangroves.

Investigators say they found partial human remains and were not able to identify the body due to its condition. The medical examiner responded to the scene to remove the body. An autopsy will be performed.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at 252-9300, or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
