COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The Collier County Sheriff's Office has identified the body found near Alligator Alley on Tuesday as 77-year-old Herman Schol, of Carrabelle, Florida.
His death is not considered suspicious.
The report reveals that Schol was found floating in shallow water, wearing only underwear, and that a blue Ford Ranger was found stuck in four feet of water a quarter of a mile from the body.
Five hunters discovered Schol in the area of Benfield Rd. and Beck Blvd. They thought they saw a blow-up doll floating in three feet of water, but soon realized it was a human body.
The body was removed from the scene at 2:25 a.m. on Wednesday.
