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!
Via Old Griffin Rd. Officer Fondo is still signing autographs in that part of the hood.

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.
Canals are Florida's tool of Darwinism. It would take too much of my tax dollars to search canals. Let the cars sit down there for decades. Make insurance companies pay for the recovery, dont use my precious tax dollars.

YEs, that would be the only way to get into the canal from there. But the Stupid Sentinel doesnt tell you that it was in the 1200 block of Old Griffin Road which would tell everyone where the location actually is. Instead they tell you Melaluca Gardens. Such great reporting on the Sentinels part. That makes 2 cars in the canal so far this year. One was lucky enough to get out and the car was only partially in. I drive the road daily on the way to pick up my kid.

Ummm, hello??!!?!

They FOUND this one; it was in the canal less than a day, probably closer to 12 hours. Are some of you suggesting that there be some sort of intrusion alarm on every canal? Why not, we have them for pools, after all?

Perhaps one of the smugglers' subs retrofitted w/ sidescan sonar will come out on sinko de mayo to seek out the 'disappeared' masses. Hallelujah!

Here is the updated story. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/local/browar...

Only thing is that this happened on OLD Griffin Road not Griffin Road.

Now here is my thought on the whole thing. Why was a 61 yr old man going out to dinner alone? Especially when he had family that he told he was going to dinner. Why was he in Dania Beach? Where did he eat and did he eat before this or was it after he ate? Maybe he wanted to come to Dania Beach to get a little action on US-1 and eat at the Y and have a box dinner? Maybe they should put up guard rails all along Old Griffin Road?

I taught him how to float face down. He never got the hang of anything else.

Bring em to Dania Beach Blvd and US-1 and bear them for all to see and I will kiss them gladly. Better yet goto Triangle Village and bear it for all them to see. I am sure someone there will take you up on your offer of kissing your balls.

Just made the cross-alley and back trip today. Saw at least 50 gators with big-belly smiles.

Exactly! Precisely!! If racism, ball-kissing, and Elvis are involved, just imagine how many cars would be in the cross-FLA canal w/out the fence in place. The same fence traps most of the otherwise roaming animals right into gator feeding holes, with no chance of mechanical misfunction/loss of control results interupting the meals and sunning!
