The body of escaped prisoner Unil Phillip, 47, was found floating near platform 14 of Trinmar’s North Field before 5 am on Monday. Workers on the platform contacted the Coast Guard, who retrieved the body.
The body, which appeared to have only one arm, was taken to the Forensic Science Center, Federation Park, where an autopsy will be performed on Tuesday.
Phillip escaped from the Carrera Island prison last week after overpowering a guard and scaling a fence. He jumped in the water and swam away.
