Two found dead within Clearwater block but unrelated, police say

CLEARWATER — Two bodies were found within a block of each other on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard within 24 hours, police reported. But they suspect no foul play and said the cases appeared unrelated.

Daniel Vespo Jr., 43, was found dead Sunday morning, authorities said, near the Hooters parking lot at 2800 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd.

Vespo doesn't have a known address, said Clearwater police spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts. Vespo was charged several times previously for sleeping in a right of way, court records show.

About 3 a.m. Monday, police were called to 2794 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. where another man was found dead in the wooded area near the road.

Officials are withholding the name of the second man until family members can be notified.

Completed autopsies of the men don't indicate foul play, Watts said.
