Not So Goodfellas

The Broward County (FL) Sheriff’s Office is dredging the waters of Deerfield Beach. The operation’s objective is to find submerged vehicles… and possibly the bodies inside.

“There’s more water in Broward County than there is land, if you count the Everglades. Waterways are a pretty common place for vehicles or evidence or anything to go missing,” Alexander Beer of the Broward Sheriff’s Office dive rescue team said.

Divers from BSO and the Pembroke Pines Police Department will be spending the next three days searching through Sailboat Lake, where they believe at least eight cars are submerged with potential bodies inside.

“It’s a possibility. We know that for any number of reasons those vehicles are there. Whether it’s an environmental hazard to have them down there — we certainly know they’re not supposed to be there, so they could be stolen, vehicles that were used in a crime,” Beer said.

I mean, it’s not like any mobsters lived in Florida or anything… I’d wager at least twenty vehicles are in the lake, and I would also guess there are at least a few bodies inside the cars.

Well, unless the gators got them.

  1. If the gators got them, there won’t be many bones left. If they didn’t, the crabs and crawfish will find them and strip the bones clean. Either way, there won’t be that much of a body to recover. Newly deceased victims are actually the worst to recover. A day or two in warm waters like Florida’s and you could base zombie SFX on them.


  2. TXNick – I had a few years on when we got our first floater. Found in the Delaware River and split open when he was brought ashore. Not so good times.


    1. Back in 2001, I went to the casino that has Bonnie & Clyde’s car (along with Clyde’s bullet ridden & bloody shirt) it was pretty sobering to look at them & realize what happened. There was also another car there (maybe Dutch Schultz?).


      1. Bill O’Reilly has a book out called, “Killing the Mob.” My MIL lent me her copy, and to be perfectly honest, the book was fantastic. Did an entire chapter on Bonnie and Clyde.
