    FL - Miami Beach, WhtMale UP6736, 30-40, 6'7" & 335 lbs, drowned, Dec'09

    This one bothers me very much. This is a VERY large man. 6'7, 350 pounds? Full set of hair. Found shortly after death in the water at Miami. Someone must be missing this man and there cant be that many missing men with this characteristics. I have done searches, to no avail yet. The estimate time of death was pretty short before finding. This one seems like it should be easy. Perhaps one of you has methods/resources that I dont have. Just seems to haunt me. I thought of the possibility that he floated in from Cuba, but Im not sure how long that would take.

    Large man found floating on SoBe dies
    A large man was found floating face down off South Beach early Thursday, Miami Beach police said.

    Police were trying to identify the man, who was six feet nine inches tall and weighed 275 to 335 pounds.

    About 2 a.m., two passersby saw the man floating near 16th Street, pulled him ashore and tried to revive him. Miami Beach Fire Rescue arrived minutes later and could not resuscitate the man, whom police described as white and between the ages of 35 and 45.

    Police did not say whether there were any signs of trauma to the man's body.

    Investigators asked anyone with information to call Miami Beach police at 305-673-7900.

    I don't think he floated in from Cuba wearing New Balance sneakers.

    the lack of hair on the lower legs and ankles is interesting. not quite sure what to make of it though.

    I took the "hairless" to mean he had shaved his legs.IDK... which led me to think (based on his size) he could be a bodybuilder or a world strongest man competitor..

    Maybe he fell off a cruise ship that was out in the "water way straight" that go around florida and no one missed him because he was traveling alone.

    Here is a website that shows how often this happens

    This is the only person I could find who looks even reasonably close. Lots not adding up but similar facial shape, size and height.

    NAMUS says "Height (inches) 79, Measured " -- which is 6'7", which is only off by 2".

    He looks very close to me, even facially.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    the UID seems to have a rounder face than Daniels but there are not that many missing men who are that tall.

    Something keeps on popping in to my head about 2 family guys who set out to sail from Miami to the Bahamas but never arrived and have been missing since. I am almost certain it was around that time but I can't for the life of me remember the names! Anyone? I don't think there was ever any height or weight details given for them though.

    Just a random thought!
