1 found dead in Fort Myers Beach apartment; deemed homicide

A body was found Tuesday morning in an apartment on Old San Carlos Road, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded Monday to an apartment building on the 600 block of Old San Carlos Boulevard, and the investigation revealed it was a homicide.

Jim Booth, a parking attendant, said the area is usually quiet.

Most of the time, even during spring break when the young people here party quite hardily … but not here,” Booth said. “Most of the time it’s pretty quiet.”

The victim’s identity is unclear pending next-of-kin notification, according to deputies. The investigation is ongoing.

The circumstances leading up to this homicide were unclear.
