    FL - Caller Says Handcuffed Woman Dumped In Bay - 2005

    Has anyone heard any updates on this?

    MIAMI --

    Divers search the waters off this point.

    Police divers searched Biscayne Bay near Bicentennial Park after getting a strange 911 call early Monday.

    That caller said a handcuffed woman had been dumped in the water. So far, no body has been found. The call came around 6 a.m.

    Officers did find a large quantity of blood on a seawall in the area. They tested it to determine whether it was human or animal. Tests confirmed that it was human.

    So far, no body has been found.

    Police are asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.

    An Update - Miami Herald Thursday August 4


    The blood was still on the seawall Wednesday, two days after Miami police got an anonymous call: A woman was dumped into the bay off Bicentennial Park. She was handcuffed.

    But when police got there, they didn't find a body.

    They still haven't.

    It's the sort of thing that sets your mind crawling. A woman was executed: She had a life in this city with you, maybe friends and a job. But she did something, or had something, and somebody decided she had to die for it.

    Or there was no woman at all: just a nasty, strange joke.

    There was a lot of blood on the seawall. It was an eight-foot smear, as if a body had been dragged. Lab tests proved it was human. ''If somebody was pulling a prank, they sure went to a lot of trouble,'' said Miami Police Lt. Bill Schwartz.

    The call came in at 6 a.m. Monday. Whoever made it could have spotted the dumping from the MacArthur Causeway, where it arches down into downtown Miami. But the caller must have been close when the woman was dumped, or had very good eyesight, because the sun didn't rise until 6:47.

    A passing boater would have had a better view. And somebody in the park could have seen, perhaps from the south, where an abandoned concession stand shelters a dozen or so homeless men who sleep there most nights.
