A federal prosecutor in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Florida district committed suicide by shooting himself in the head according to the official verdict by police – however they also confirm that no gun was found, raising the question of how he could have shot himself in the head.
Beranton Whisenant, 38, was found dead by a on a beach in Hollywood, Florida near Magnolia Terrace shortly before 6:30 a.m. on May 24. The police have been investigating to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.”
After months of investigation, detectives and a medical examiner have now announced that Whisenant committed suicide by shooting himself in the head, Hollywood police said.
But despite searching for two blocks north and south of the crime scene they couldn’t find the gun or any other weapon that would explain how Whisenant apparently killed himself.
Are we expected to believe the prosecutor, who was named as a potential witness in the DNC fraud lawsuit being conducted in Florida, managed to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head – and then managed to dispose of the weapon?
“They are not even trying anymore”
Whisenant was working for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in the major crimes unit investigating visa fraud, an issue close to Wasserman Schultz’s heart, as recent revelations regarding the Awan brothers have proven.
Whisenant was a young, up and coming prosecutor with an insatiable thirst for justice, according to colleagues. He graduated from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2004 and was admitted to the Florida Bar the same year.
According to the Sun Sentinal, at the time of Whisenant’s death, Acting U.S. Attorney Benjamin Greenberg for the Southern District of Florida, said in a statement that his agency was “deeply shocked and saddened.”
“He was a great lawyer and a wonderful colleague and we will miss him deeply. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.” Greenberg said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined any further comment Thursday.
