PALM COAST, FL – The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the death of a male found in the water at Graham Swamp at approximately 7:45 a.m., September 28th, 2020. The subject has been positively identified as that of Giovanne Sylvain, an 18-year-old male who had been missing since the evening of September 25, 2020.
FCSO Major Case Squad is currently investigating the death due to the suspicious circumstances and the autopsy results. The determination of cause of death is awaiting testing from toxicology and anthropology. Detectives have been in contact with Giovanne’s family since this morning and they have been cooperative with law enforcement throughout the investigation.
The FCSO wants the public to know that this is common practice in death investigations and does not necessarily mean the subject was the victim of a violent act or that there is any threat to the community. Death investigations are inherently complex as they involve multiple disciplines and take time to ensure that proper conclusions and information released are accurate and verifiable.
“We are always committed to demonstrating transparency but we do not want to release any information that later may be determined to be inaccurate,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “We understand that the public has concerns and we will provide more information as the investigation progresses.”
