A Florida federal attorney who was investigating against the DNC, specifically, Wasserman-Shultz district, was found dead on a beach with what authorities describe as “head trauma.”
A lawsuit last year against the DNC was filed in the Southern District of Florida by attorney Shaun Lucas.
A month after Lucas filed the papers to sue the DNC, he was found dead at the age of 38. 14 prosecutors have been killed in 100 years.
One of those was Lucas — the man who served the DNC papers.
The lawsuit was filed on June 28 by Bernie Sanders supporters against the DNC and then DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who resigned in the wake of the WikiLeaks email scandal.
And now a young federal prosecutor working in the Southern District of Florida is also found dead. Florida Prosecutor Beranton J. Whisenant Jr., 37, was investigating fraud and visa case in Wasserman-Schultz’s back yard district. Was he working on the case against the DNC?
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — The body of a federal prosecutor has been found on a Florida beach with possible head trauma.
Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said Thursday that the body of 37-year-old Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. was found early Wednesday by a passerby on the city’s beach. She said detectives are trying to determine if the death was a homicide, suicide or something else.
Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He had joined the office in January. Court records show he had been handling several visa and passport fraud cases.
Acting U.S. Attorney Benjamin G. Greenberg said in a statement that Whisenant was a “great lawyer and wonderful colleague.” The office declined to comment on the investigation.
