Hillsborough detectives seek public's help in identifying body

TAMPA — Hillsborough County sheriff's detectives need help identifying a body found floating in a canal on Halloween.

A park ranger discovered the body in the Bypass Canal on U.S. 301 south of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The body had been in the water for one to two days, and it has no signs of trauma, deputies said.

The man is described as Hispanic between the ages of 25 and 35, 5 feet 3 and about 160 pounds. He had a red mustache, closely cropped brown hair and silver caps around his top teeth, deputies said. When found, he was wearing only black gym shorts with white stripes.

The cause of death is unknown.

Anyone with information should call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
