Body Washes Up Near Set of ‘CSI: Miami’

September 17, 2006

MIAMI (AP) _ A man’s body floated up near where a crew was filming a scene for the crime show ``CSI: Miami,″ authorities said.

The body washed up early Friday in Biscayne Bay at Bicentennial Park, which film crews were using as a helicopter staging ground for aerial shots of a fictional offshore investigation for the CBS show, police said.

A homeless man spotted the body and alerted an off-duty police officer who was working security on the set, police said. The body had no signs of injury, and the death was not considered suspicious, according to authorities.

``Unfortunately, it’s not unusual during certain times of the year that people who have fallen in the bay, either homeless or people who were asleep or in some cases boaters who had a mishap, fall into the bay and turn up days later,″ said Detective Delrish Moss, a Miami police spokesman.

It’s not the first dead body to unexpectedly appear on a ``CSI″ set. One was found this week in a Los Angeles building where ``CSI: New York″ was filming. Police also didn’t consider that death suspicious.
