[Ed. – Head trauma. Doesn’t really sound like suicide. Betting it’s not an accident either. The guy’s colleagues say good things about him. I’m officially suspecting foul play.]
A federal prosecutor who was found dead this week on a South Florida beach possibly suffered head trauma, authorities said.
Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said the body of Beranton J. Whisenant Jr., 37, was found early Wednesday by a passerby on the city’s beach.
She said detectives are trying to determine if the death was a homicide, suicide or something else.
Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He joined the office in January. Court records show that he had been handling several visa and passport fraud cases.
