Florida police report hunters have found what appears to be the remains of missing University of Florida student Christian Aguilar off a rural dirt road in Levy County.
Fred Oliver, a volunteer with the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, said hunters discovered a body around 2 p.m. Friday on the grounds of the Gulf Hammock Hunting Club — a private club with about 300 members.
The men found the remains eight miles off State Road 24 on Parker Boulevard, about six miles west of Otter Creek.
“Two young fellas were looking for firewood by themselves,” Oliver said. “They picked up the scent, the odor of something dead.”
Oliver said the young men thought they had stumbled onto the remains of a dead deer, and maybe they could get a set of antlers. What they found was a decomposed, partially buried body.
