Fed prosecutor investigating visa fraud cases found dead on beach in Wasserman Schultz’s district

A federal prosecutor from the U.S. attorney’s office in Miami who happened to be investigating voter fraud has been found dead along a Hollywood Florida beach, and it’s being investigated as a homicide.

According to Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman, although the “investigation is still very preliminary,” 37-year-old Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. likely suffered a head wound from a gunshot or other direct trauma. His body was found by a passerby washed up on the Hollywood beach shore south of Magnolia Terrace. It isn’t clear where the victim actually died.

For now, the FBI’s Miami office is referring all questions related to Whisenant’s death to Hollywood police, but if the death is found to be retaliatory or related to a case Whisenant was working on, standard procedure would mean the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office aggressively working together on the case.

News spread quickly on social media that Whisenant was involved in a recent fraud probe involving the DNC, though none of the news reports mentioned that as fact.

A graduate of the University of Florida law school, Whisenant has been a member of the Florida Bar since 2004, joining the U.S. attorney’s office in January 2017 in the major crimes section.

His office happens to be in Congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district.

According to the AP, Whisenant “had been handling several visa and passport fraud cases.”

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office family was deeply saddened and shocked to learn of Beranton’s death,” Acting U.S. Attorney Benjamin Greenberg said in a statement. “He was a great lawyer and wonderful colleague, and we will miss him deeply. Our thoughts are with Beranton’s family and friends.”

A father of three, Whisenant and his wife, Ebony, lived in Miramar.
