    FL - Marion County, Male body in rock quarry, Feb'06 - Larry Eddings

    Authorities in Marion County, Fla., hope a hotel key can offer clues into the discovery of a man's body in a rock quarry.
    Police said the body of a white man was found floating in some water at a rock quarry near Northwest Gainesville Road in Marion County.

    The man is described as being in his 40s with balding dark hair and a red beard. He is under 6 feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

    This case has been reported on our local news the last few days. The "key" shown on the news footage appears to be an older type hotel key - room 150.

    I hope someone calls in the necessary tip that identifies this deceased man. Sad case.

    A bit more about the location:

    KENDRICK - Authorities are investigating the death of a man found floating in a lime pit Tuesday evening.

    Two fishermen were driving in a wooded area in Kendrick around the 6800 block of Northwest Gainesville Road looking for a spot to fish when they discovered the body, according to a spokeswoman with the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

    With a helicopter flashing beams of light over the wooded area and the 84-acre lime pit, investigators were trying to sift through the area Tuesday night.

    He's not in Doe Network or Namus, whatever that means.
