Man From Broward Found Dead in Tampa Bay Area

A 49-year-old man named Scott Michael Barry, whose last known residence was in Broward County, was identified yesterday as the man found dead this weekend in a Pasco County lake. From the St. Petersburg Times:

Neighbors along Wagon Wheel Lane found the body floating face down in the lake Saturday morning. By the water's edge were a backpack, bicycle and pack of generic cigarettes. Sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll also said investigators found a jug of vodka that was nearly empty. On Saturday, Doll said it appeared the man was homeless.

Barry didn't leave much of a trace in Broward County. The Clerk of Courts page shows a 1992 felony conviction for cocaine possession.
