In Feb 2008, a witness came forward and provided the Police Department with an investigative lead into the suspicious 1977 disappearance of Jeffrey Walter Klee. In March of 2008, Klee’s remains were recovered from the C-14 canal inside the same van he was last seen driving. The Coral Springs Police Department has identified the suspects.
The case was sent to the Broward County State Attorney's Office for review. The State Attorney declined prosecution for manslaughter on the basis of statutory limitations in affect at the time of Klee's death.
There will be a press conference held at the Coral Springs Police Department on November 20, 2008 at 2:00pm. In attendance at the conference will be members of the Klee family who will read a prepared statement.
