Man Found Shot To Death At Palm Beach Downs; Was Groom In Pletcher Barn

An unidentified man was found shot to death early Saturday at Palm Beach Downs Training Center near Delray Beach, Florida, WPTV reports.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the man's body was found about 4 a.m. (ET) near  the 10300 block of Atlantic Avenue.

Trainer Todd Pletcher confirmed that the victim was a groom who began working for his stable last November.

A spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office said the family of the victim invoked Marsy's Law, a 2018 Florida constitutional amendment that provides certain privacy rights to crime victims.

Briana Nespral of WPTV in West Palm Beach reported that the man's body, discovered near a dormitory, has “one or more gunshot wounds.” The 85-acre training center has been closed to the public.

Sheriff's deputies said that there is no suspect as yet or motive for the shooting.
