The FBI and Broward Sheriff’s Office made an unexpected visit to a new housing development in Broward County, Florida, arousing curiosity among locals. The agencies hired a John Deere excavator to dig up the ground in search of something that no one knew was lurking beneath the surface of the new property development: human remains.
Although police have not yet disclosed who they were searching for when they started digging up South Florida, they have confirmed that they found human remains. The body appears to have been buried in the ground in 2014 before the land was developed.
Police are aggressively seeking more information about the case but are not revealing any details about the case or who they are looking for. They also have not shared any information about who they think might have buried the person back in 2014.
“After several days of extensive digging at a site in Oakland Park as part of a criminal investigation, the Broward Sheriff’s Office, working in conjunction with the FBI, is asking for the public’s help in identifying human remains found buried at the location. Investigators unearthed the human remains during the search, which was located in the 4200 block of North Dixie Highway in Oakland Park.”
The location of the remains is next to a busy road where there are multiple homes and businesses. The human remains were found near a new property development in Broward County. Authorities were digging up the ground near the north side of the development, where there is a little lake.
It is unclear whether the police and FBI are working to close a missing person’s case or if they are following up on evidence from a murder case.
The media has reported on the discovery, and readers have shared their reactions to the FBI dig in Florida via comments on news sites.
“They have to know who it was since it was the whole reason they were digging there. This wasn’t some random bones tossed up while digging a foundation.”
“The investigators must have a general idea who the killer is? Otherwise, why would they know to dig in this specific area? It sounds like this story needs a follow-up in the next few weeks to get the entire truth. Either way, RIP to whoever died.”
“They obviously found exactly who they were looking for going by all of their reactions. You can almost hear them exclaim ‘JACKPOT’ when she pulls that piece of clothing out.”
“How can they ask the public for help without releasing any details?”
“The killer has got to be vomiting right about now.”
Police are still investigating the case, and the remains are pending positive identification and an autopsy to determine the individual’s identity and the manner of the individual’s death. Although the agencies have asked for the public’s help, they have not shared any details about the case. The investigation is ongoing, and more information will be released as it becomes available.
