dont know why more canals are not searched, so many cars down there with a lot of mysteries im sure will be solved. Insurance fraud, bodies like this one, you name it. I bet someone could make a lot of money, like a PI or someone, by solving all these cases simply by searching the canals.

I think I saw Jimmy Hoffa and Elvis driving out of Burger King drive Thru, right into the canal. Elvis's weight made them sink faster

you have made an excellent point, like many families who have lost loved ones to canals here in Florida.

There is a high cost of doing this safely. From divers, tow trucks, support staff on shore with EMS, maybe a trapper or two for snakes and gators and DEP should also be on scene for water pollutants.

I don't think there is much $$ to be made in cases like this. If there is then SIGN ME UP, I'll toss a hook in the water and see what we can pull up, or get a real expensive sonar rig and camera that goes under water and BINGO, maybe we find HOFFA!!!

Doesn't it seem like there would be some type of technology we could use to make it a snap to search the canals? Metal detectors or imaging equipment of some type?

So does the dead man live in Malaluca Gardens? I mean this neighborhood only has 2 ways in and out and both are on New Griffin Road. I looked at the area on google maps and how do you get your car in a canal when there are houses on both sides of the street between the street and the canal? Great Reporting Sun Sentinel!

Just ask. Maybe the county will let you have it. You WILL have to pay tax on it, I'm sure.
