Monroe County Needs Help Identifying, Locating Families Of 6 Dead Men

Monroe County officials are asking for the public's help in identifying and locating the families of casualties of Hurricane Irma.  

The bodies of six men who died in the storm have yet to be claimed more than a week after its landfall in the Keys.  

Two of the men are identified as David Speraw and Robert Wheeler Jr.  

Speraw lived in Tavernier and died after he was released from the hospital. Wheeler died while in shelter at Marathon High School during the storm. Authorities believe both men died of chronic medical conditions. 

Authorities said the four others were white men who were likely in their 60s. One was found in Stock Island, another in Big Pine Key and another in Marathon. Authorities said the fourth man died at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
