The body of a 17-year-old male was pulled from the retention pond beside Alumni Hall at UNF according to Action News Jax. 

Officers arrived at the scene around 6 p.m. and Dani Bozzini from Action News Jax reported the incident at approximately 8:30 p.m. Bozzini saw a dive team member from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office remove the body from the water.


Spinnaker’s Features Editor, Nathan Turoff, arrived at the scene at 9:25 p.m. and found officers cleaning up yellow crime scene tape.

Action News Jax reported that officers told them that the 17-year-old was not a registered student at UNF and his death is currently being called as undetermined. “Police say they do not suspect foul play and are working to notify his family. Evidence that was found at the scene helped police identify the male,” News Staff at Action News Jax stated.
