MICCO, Florida – A maintenance worker called the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office after a body was discovered near the lake in Barefoot Bay.

There’s not too much information to go on at this time since detectives have not completed their investigation. Law enforcement believe it was a suicide.

A black SUV was towed from the site next to the lake, just east of what residents call “Building A.”

As of right now, the case appears to be a suicide. Residents saw a body removed in a black bag just before 8:00 a.m.

The name of the deceased is still being withheld until they contact the next of kin.

Brevard County Sheriff’s sources say it was a suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot.

“The death was ruled a suicide by investigators,” Sheriff’s spokesman Officer Tod Goodyear told Sebastian Daily.

Anyone who is suicidal may receive immediate help by logging onto or by calling 1-800-SUICIDE. Suicide is preventable, and if you are feeling suicidal, you must get help. So please visit or call 1-800-SUICIDE immediately.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said the Barefoot Bay victim was from Indian River County.
