Identified! FL- Sawgrass Mills shopping center, human remains found in white ‘83 Oldsmobile, submerged in 24ft deep retention pond, 6 Jan. 2024 - Kareem D Tisdale

Any chance it is these missing men? speculation, fwiw..
I would tend to doubt that it is either or both of those two men. One was reported missing in October of 2003 and the other in January of 2004. If the former Sheriff's Deputy who is suspected of being involved with their disappearances actually was responsible it would be hard to imagine him driving all the way across the state to a way more populated area to dispose of the bodies.
What an absolutely fascinating case though.
 
Lengthy article with lots of pics from various 'finds' referenced here, and a lot of love for Adventures With Purpose.

''Around 630,000 people are reported missing every year in the United States - with 90,000 never found. That's nearly one million people who remain unaccounted for over the past decade.

In response, some non-profits are stepping in - hoping to change those statistics.

One such organization is Sunshine State Sonar, whose volunteer divers fearlessly scour the alligator-infested waters of Florida for those who vanished.''

''So far the team has recovered eleven bodies - including four just since the start of this year - and helped solve eight cold cases. Most recently the group uncovered the remains of mother-of-four Maureen Sherman who disappeared 38 years ago.

In an exclusive interview with Dailymail.com, Sunshine State Sonar founder, Mike Sullivan, sheds light on the danger involved in their incredible work.

'There is never a dull moment in our organization. What we do is extremely dangerous,' he said. 'We are diving in canals, retention, ponds and lakes, infested with alligators, water moccasins and other harmful creatures.'

'But to find someone that has been missing thirty-eight years is an incredible feeling,' he added.''

I hope these guys stay safe. They are doing some amazing work.
 
DNA Pending

A white, ‘80′s model Oldsmobile was submerged about 25 feet before it was recovered from the retention pond.

Sources told Local 10 News that 19 years after Tisdale went missing, an ID card belonging to Kareem Demarzo Tisdale was recovered in that white Oldsmobile, along with those human remains.

It's unclear from this article--are they now saying there was only one set of remains in the vehicle, not three?

Or perhaps it's a father and his two kids, and identifying the kids will be easy once the father is identified.

Agreed that the article could have been articulated a little better. My take away is that the ID card found with a name led the authorities to Kareem’s parents for DNA testing.

The statement “along with those remains” may mean one or more individuals (MOO). It‘s not clear how many sets of remains were located inside the car. Will be looking for updates with more information.

It also doesn't sound like the Oldsmobile was registered to Kareem. Several articles mentioned it was last registered in 2005 but they haven't said who it was registered to. I feel like that bit of information may hold the key to the identity of the other remains in the car.
 
Damian Dill’s last date of contact is December 15, 2005 as reported in NamUs. Not sure why it says Feb. 15th in the circumstance description. Maybe Damian knew Kareem and was with him at the time. (No mention of vehicle or transportation)

If there are 3 sets of remains, these two young men would be my first look. (MOO)

Damian Dill (20) was last seen at his residence in Montgomery, Alabama on February 15, 2005. He may have went to work with Job Corp in Florida.

Damian’s NamUs:

Antonio Gomez (15) from Oakland Park, FL also went missing at the same time.

Antonio was last seen in Oakland Park, FL in December 2005. DLC in NamUs is December 16, 2005.

Agreed. If he had any connection with that car it would have been reported missing along with him. The only possible exception that I could see to this is if it had been a very recent purchase that no one in his inner circle knew about yet when this tragedy occurred.

For the same reasons as above, I would doubt this scenario because presumably his kids would have been reported missing along with him and (hopefully) would have moved the case way up the priority ladder.
