Cancun, Q.R. — An adult male, believed to be a visitor to the area, was reported floating in the sea by hotel staff. The body of the man was spotted floating along the seashore on a beach in Puerto Juárez around 4:00 p.m. Sunday.
Hotel staff reported the deceased man to Emergency 911. Elements of the State Attorney General’s Office arrived at the scene to confirm the death and initiate an investigation. So far, the identity of the man is unknown. Police were also left to determine where he came from and where he drowned before being found on the beach since it is possible the body could have been carried from Isla Mujeres or the Cancun Hotel Zone.
The deceased has been identified only as an adult African-American male. He was discovered floating along the shore in a beach area of Puerto Juárez wearing only a t-shirt and snorkel fins.
