Tonight, St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara announced the identity of the Port St. Lucie man found this morning inside a stolen car submerged in the Taylor Creek canal northwest of Fort Pierce.
He is Justin Michael Clark-Moore, DOB 9/24/89 (19 years old), of 2365 S.E. Hallahan Street, Port St. Lucie, Sheriff Mascara said.
This morning, deputies were sent to 45th Street and Grady Drive in northern St. Lucie County, Sheriff Mascara said. There, deputies found submerged in the Taylor Creek Canal a white 1983 Toyota Carolla, with Clark-Moore in the driver seat.
It appeared that Clark-Moore had been submerged in the canal overnight.
Fort Pierce police had received a report that the car had been stolen.
On the floorboard, deputies found a screwdriver that may have been used to steal the car. The car keys were not in the car.
The Treasure Coast Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy, which had not been scheduled by late tonight.
