    Photo at site, not much of an update except for this:
    30-year-old Layla Dietz was last seen at approximately 12:45 a.m. Sunday when she left the club with a man attending a sailing regatta. But he apparently claims they parted ways on a dock, where her purse and shoes were later discovered.

    Yes,
    it was after the Blue Nose race...pretty much an all nighter. They have sent divers into the water but found nothing. The area around the Yacht club isn't the best. They have a gateman at the gate.

    Body found at Bayview Yacht Club marina

    The body of a white female was found Tuesday evening at the eastern end of the Bayview Yacht Club marina, near where Layla Dietz was last seen early Sunday morning.

    The death did not appear to be suspicious, said Detroit Police Cmdr. James Tolbert. The body has yet to be identified by relatives, police said.

    "We're trying to determine the cause of death," said James Tate, a spokesman for the Detroit Police Department. "There are no obvious signs of foul play."

    Interesting on how quick the body came up. The man she was with was found out of state.
    Just a thought, she might have been jumping onto a boat, and fell hit her head and drowned.

    Bayview is a yacht club located on the Detroit River in the City of Detroit. Between September 21, 2007, and September 23, 2007, Bayview hosted a sailing tournament. On the evening of September 22, 2007, a private party was held at Bayview for Bayview’s members, their guests, and the tournament participants. Defendant William Carleton, II (Carleton) was one
    of the participants in the sailing tournament and was present at the party.

    Plaintiff’s decedent, Layla Dietz (Dietz), was invited to the party as well. Dietz and Carleton became acquainted at the party and Carleton began buying alcoholic drinks for Dietz.

    According to plaintiff, Dietz consumed alcohol at the party “and as a result thereof was having
    difficulty with her balance and other physical and mental activities.” Also according to plaintiff,
    Dietz “stumbled inside the bar and exhibited other alcohol-related difficulties with her balance,
    and was requested by the agents of Bayview Yacht Club to leave the bar.” Carleton agreed to
    assist Dietz and take her out of the bar. Carleton testified that he and Dietz left the bar at about
    12:30 a.m.

    The bartenders working at Bayview that night testified that they had begun serving Dietz
    mixed drinks at approximately 10:00 p.m., and that Dietz was visibly intoxicated by sometime
    after 11:00 p.m. Therefore, the bartenders stopped serving her alcohol. One of the bartenders
    testified that Dietz had begun to show signs of intoxication, such as slurred speech. Another
    bartender and an unrelated witness recalled that Dietz had stumbled and fallen in the bar that
    evening and that Carleton had helped her up. Dietz’s sister, Tanya Neumann, was also present at
    the party on the evening of September 22, 2007. Neumann testified that her sister left the bar
    with Carleton at about 12:15 a.m.

    Carleton’s boat, the Tiburon, was docked in Bayview’s marina on the evening of
    September 22, 2007, and was tied to a rigid inflatable boat. Tied up near the Tiburon and the
    rigid inflatable boat was a third boat, the Cujo. Carleton testified that, after leaving the bar,
    Dietz wanted to see his boat and he therefore took her to see it. In order to get onto Carleton’s
    boat, it was necessary to first climb down the dock and then onto the rigid inflatable boat. It is
    undisputed that at some point prior to 2:00 a.m., Carleton and Dietz engaged in sexual activities
    aboard the rigid inflatable boat.

    A woman who was walking to the Cujo discovered Carleton and Dietz having sex.
    According to Carleton, Dietz was embarrassed about having been discovered and asked him to
    leave. Carleton stated that he left the area at about 2:00 a.m., leaving Dietz alone on the rigid
    inflatable boat. Carleton testified that as he was walking back to his vehicle, which was parked
    on the Bayview grounds, he could see that Dietz was still on board the rigid inflatable boat.
    On September 23, 2007, Dietz was reported missing by her sister. Two or three days
    later, the body of a young woman was found in the water near Bayview’s marina. The young
    woman was identified as Dietz. The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that
    the cause of death was drowning, and found elevated levels of alcohol in the decedent’s blood
    and urine. Other than small abrasions on the decedent’s knees and an abrasion on her left
    temple, the medical examiner discovered “no significant evidence of trauma or injury.” The
    medical examiner noted in the autopsy report that it was “not possible . . . to ascertain how the
    decedent got into the water.”
