Man's body found behind restaurant site

Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found behind a vacant restaurant building. A woman walking her dog found the body and called police about 7:30 p.m. Monday. The man was identified as 40-year-old Casey Steven Garber. Police said he suffered trauma to the upper body, and they don't believe it was a random act of violence. Police said Garber's current address is unknown. Pinellas County court records show he lived in Trinity in 2009. His body was found behind the closed Dogwater Cafe at the Clearwater Executive Golf Course at 2506 Countryside Blvd. Police said it's possible he had been dead since Saturday, but an autopsy was still under way Tuesday at the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office.
