Submerged vehicle with unknown person inside found in Southern PBC

On Saturday, Sept. 9, deputies were alerted to a partially submerged vehicle located in a canal in southern Palm Beach County (PBC). The vehicle became uncovered in the canal as a result of the city or county lowering the water levels in preparation for Hurricane Irma’s landfall. A deceased person was located inside the vehicle. Identity is unknown at this time. The vehicle was removed and preserved in preparation for an autopsy and further investigation.

More information will be released when the unknown person is identified.
