Black Prosecutor Found Dead On Florida Beach

Police are investigating the mysterious death of a federal prosecutor whose body was found washed up on a beach in Hollywood, Fla., Wednesday, May 24.

Police identified the deceased man as 37-year-old Beranton Whisenant Jr., who authorities said might have suffered a head wound caused by a gun shot or other type of trauma, the Miami Herald reported. His death is being investigated as a crime.

“The investigation is still very preliminary,” Hollywood Police Department spokeswoman Miranda Grossman told reporters, adding that detectives and Broward County’s medical examiner’s office are “still looking at it.”

Whisenant, a graduate of the University of Florida’s law school, joined the major crimes unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami earlier this year, according to the newspaper. Court documents showed that he’d been working on visa and passport fraud cases before his death and taught a paralegal program at the University of Miami.

Colleagues, family and friends were shocked to hear of the prosecutor’s passing.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office family was deeply saddened and shocked to learn of Beranton’s death,” Acting U.S. Attorney Benjamin Greenberg said. “He was a great lawyer and wonderful colleague, and we will miss him deeply. Our thoughts are with Beranton’s family and friends.”

Lawyer Michael Feiler, a friend of Whisenant, described his pal as the “epitome of a gentleman and possessed an exceptional legal mind.” Feiler added that the husband and father of two was motivated by public service and planned to become a judge someday.

The exact cause of the prosecutor’s death is still being investigated.

  • I find the amount of people offended by this post kinda funny. someone shared a study. so what, i am sure it has merits but the human body has so many variables that no one thing is going to be true for everyone. Especially when you factor in the backgrounds and diets vary so much around the globe. I am the 13th child of 14 children. The closest of us is 11 months and the furthest apart is 2 yrs. Our mom breastfed but it didn’t stop the fertility. Having babies that close worked for her, she is almost 80 and can just about outwork me in a day, but for many woman to carry 14 children would have been a tremendous toll on their body. Mom didn’t have the greatest diet back then but neither was it the worst but somehow it was enough. We are all smart and sucessfull. I think now a days it is much more of a challenge to be healthy. Chemicals everywhere, high stress, political upheaval. EMF. We are surrounded by unhealthy things every day all day long. It takes a toll on the body and we pass it on to our children.
