    The victim's body was found with a female, 1220UFFL, and a male 2507UMFL in C-51 Canal, eight miles west of U.S. 441 on New Hope Sugar property in Belle Glade.

    The body was wrapped in a dark blue quilted bed comforter with a black plastic garbage bag over the head and feet. It was tied with fishing line and rope. Masking tape covered his mouth and eyes. The victim had been handcuffed. The handcuffs had the word "STOP" printed over the keyhole.
