Decomposed body found in woods
...the case is being investigated as a suspicious death.
An ATV rider in Brevard County, Fla., discovered a partially buried decomposing body off a dirt road Thursday, police told Local 6 News.
Investigators aren't saying if the body is a that of a man or a woman or whether foul play is suspected.Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated. -Sun Tzu

FL - Found/Identified:Facial Reconstruction, DNA Helped Identify Victim John Gavin
Sad because I don't even know if anyone reported him missing.
PORT ST. JOHN, Fla. -- With the help of technology and a series of breaks, Brevard County police on Wednesday said they have solved a mysterious death that had lingered in their files for four years.
A former Port St. John resident was in jail Wednesday night, charged in connection with the crime. Police said they finally have the name of the victim, whose skeletal remains were found in October 2005.

From September 2009:
On Sept. 16, David W. Slaton of Lakeland turned himself in...
Through conversation with those who knew the victim, investigators learned that Gavin had met with some men, including Slaton, at the Siesta Lounge in Lakeland. It was there Slaton offered Gavin work in Brevard County, where he was renting a house in Port St. John.
Investigators think that Gavin went to Slaton's Brevard residence and that's where he was killed.
