Police seek identity of dead man in canal

Detectives were trying to identify a man whose body was found in a canal Monday.

The body was found by a passer-by on the south side of the Jacaranda Retirement Home, 4250 56th St. N. Detectives don't believe the man's death was suspicious. The body appears to have been in the water about two days, Pinellas sheriff's officials said.

The man is believed to be Hispanic or biracial and looks to be in his early 20s. He is about 5 foot 7 and 150 pounds. He was wearing a soccer-style uniform with a V-neck style tan shirt with yellow or gold stripes on the shoulders. The shorts also are tan with yellow or gold stripes. The shirt has the letters "BWIN" on the front and on the back collar are the words "REAL MADRID."

He was wearing socks and no shoes.

Anyone with information about the man can call Sgt. Rob Snipes at 727-582-6200.
