After further investigation, detectives learned that on Wednesday, December 22, Vensly and a friend met up after school, when according to the friend, Vensly started to not feel well, so the two started walking home from Crestwood Middle school.

For unknown reasons, Vensly began to act in an unusual manner. The teens separated, with the friend continuing home and Vensly remaining behind in the area of the Recreation Center. Vensly was not seen again until his body was discovered on Christmas day in a retention pond located at 100 Sweet Bay Lane in Royal Palm Beach.    

In conjunction with the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office, police say preliminary investigative findings have not revealed any signs of trauma or injury to the decedent. Foul play is not suspected, and initial findings indicate that Vensly may have suffered a medical episode prior to entering the water. Drowning was not a factor. This investigation is continuing and ongoing.
