Kayakers discover body near Goodland Bridge

Collier County sheriff’s deputies are trying to identify a man whose body was found off of Marco Island on Tuesday.

Around 4:15 p.m., kayakers about a half-mile off coast from the Goodland Bridge called authorities about a floating body. Investigators who recovered the body said it was a white man appearing to be about 50 years old, said Jamie Mosbach, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Office.

Nothing about the man indicated foul play, Mosbach said, but the condition of the body did not allow investigators to make an immediate identification.

No furthers details about the death investigation were immediately available.

I ask where is the yellow kayak i gave him? Why was he found in the condition he was found in? how long was brad dead before being found? What did the coroner find? Did alcohol play a part? He was going to AA and was doing good last i saw him! Brad was a vet. and a nice guy. My flag will be at half mast till some of the questions are answered.
Capt Jay looking for answers!

Is this the Brad Carscadden who (I believe)was originally from Lansing Michigan? Who also lived in NC for awhile?
I really hope not.
When I was a young boy he used to take me fishing with him. He was so kind to me and was like a big brother.
Please tell me this isn't him? Please?
