October 24, 2019 - 3:55 pm Author: Category:

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the suspicious death of an adult male who was discovered on Sharon Lane in Rockledge early this morning.

The investigation began after a call was received from a citizen who advised an adult male was laying just off the roadway on Sharon Lane. Deputies responded to the scene and determined that the male was deceased. Homicide agents and Crime Scene investigators responded and began processing the scene for evidence and canvassing the neighborhood for possible witnesses. Based on the preliminary investigation it appears that the death occurred at another location and the male was brought to Sharon Lane and placed on the side of the roadway. A body of water near the location was searched by the Sheriff’s Office Dive Team in attempt to locate any evidence that could further the investigation. The victim’s body was transported to the Medical Examiners’ Office where an autopsy will be conducted.

At this time, the Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the name of the victim as next of kin have not been notified.

The investigation is ongoing and updates will be provided as they become available.
