NEVER FORGET: Whistleblower Investigating Fraud in Broward County Shot Himself in the Head — But No Gun Was Found

A federal prosecutor’s body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach in May 2017.

Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr. was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district in Broward County at the time of his death.

He was shot in the head.

Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found in May 2017 by a random individual. Local police investigated to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.”

Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district.

Officials later decided Beranton’s death was a suicide and he shot himself in the head.
But no gun was ever found.

The Sun-Sentinel reported:

Detectives and a medical examiner found Whisenant had shot himself in the head, Hollywood police said.

Police searched for two blocks north and south of the crime scene but couldn’t find the gun or any other weapon.

He was assigned to the Miami office of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and been hired as federal prosecutor a few months earlier.
