Deputies investigating man's body found in Hudson canal

HUDSON — The body of a man was found Wednesday afternoon in a canal in the Sea Ranch subdivision.

Authorities have not released the name of the man, but the death does not appear to be suspicious, said Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

Susan Begin, who lives in an apartment on Sea Ranch Drive, said she looked out her window Wednesday afternoon and saw a man's arm hanging onto the dock. She called 911 and alerted the property manager, who ran out to help, thinking the man might still be alive. "I saw right away he was dead," said Marcin Gora, the property manager. He said the man appeared to have blood on his face and an injury to his head.

"I feel a little sick to my stomach to know something like this can happen so close to home," Begin said.
