Father, son on scavenger hunt find woman's body


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A father and son on a scavenger hunt found a woman's body in a beachfront park, forcing the evacuation of the recreation area, sheriff's officials said.


The woman was in her 20s or 30s, and was from the area, said sheriff's officials, who declined to identify her until her family could be notified.


Detectives believed foul play was a factor in her death, said Palm Beach County Sheriff's spokeswoman Diane Carhart.


The woman, who was found in the woods near the parking lot, appeared to have died recently. An autopsy was scheduled for today, said Capt. Kenneth Deischer.


Police wrapped yellow crime-scene tape across the park's entrance, searched vehicles, and told about 50 beachgoers to leave the area.


The father and son who found the body were not identified, but Deischer said they were participating in an Internet-based scavenger hunt.

It's got to be this cache


I found another news story:




Body of woman found at Gulfstream Park



Posted June 14 2004


The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is investigating the apparent homicide of a woman whose body was found Sunday morning at Gulfstream Park.


A man and his son discovered the body about 10 a.m. Sunday in the woods at the beachfront park on State Road A1A near Briny Breezes, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Diane Carhart said. It appeared as if the body was there "not very long," she said.


Deputies closed the park, which was expected to be open this morning, she said. Carhart said the woman appeared to be in her late 20s or early 30s.
