Body Of British Businessman Found In Florida Pond

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The body of a British businessman has been found in a retention pond at a central Florida resort.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jeff Williamson says 43-year-old Simon Latham attended a conference at an Orlando hotel with his brother-in-law and about a dozen other people.

Latham was last seen in the Caribe Royale Resort lobby early Thursday. Williamson says the British citizen’s brother-in-law reported him missing when he failed to join the group Friday morning for a 7 a.m. flight to South Korea, where Latham lived.

Latham’s body was discovered around 8 a.m. Saturday in a retention pond on the resort property. Williamson says Latham’s brother-in-law was walking around the property and called authorities when he spotted the body.

An autopsy is pending. Detectives do not suspect foul play.
