Body found in horse trainer's submerged car

The Associated Press

        MIRAMAR, Fla. — The car of missing race horse trainer John Tammaro was found at the bottom of a roadside canal Monday, and a body was found inside the car, police said.

        The 1987 Mercedes was found during a routine search of the canal by divers working for the South Florida Water Management District, said Miramar Police Capt. Bruce Keesling.

        The body, which had not been positively identified late Monday, was taken to the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office, Capt. Keesling said.

        “At this point we do not know how it ended up in the canal,” Capt. Keesling said. “The vehicle has been in the water for a while.”

        Mr. Tammaro, 75, was last seen Feb. 25, when he drove off from the stables at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach.

        Mr. Tammaro had liver surgery three weeks before he disappeared. He had told family members he had not been feeling well.

        Mr. Tammaro's sons, John Tammaro III and Mike, and daughter Cathy, are all trainers. Mike is now at Turfway Park in Florence, Ky. His siblings all spent some time there.
