CSI: Windjammer

Expect this true story to turn up on CSI:Miami next season. How very bizarre; this occurred right after our return. It's not a pretty story, and there's been very little more reported since this story from early April: 

Millionaire Found Dead In Miami Hotel – News Story – WPLG Miami

MIAMI — It's not the place one would expect a millionaire to turn up dead. But that's what happened to Daniel Richard Burke inside room No. 209 at the Biscayne Inn.

In an area of Biscayne Boulevard long known for prostitution and drug use, Burke's death came as a surprise to his family — not just because of where he died, but also because they didn't know he was dead.

The president of his family's Windjammer Cruises, Burke grew up on glitzy Star Island. His most recent address was a waterfront estate off the Venetian Causeway, which is currently for sale at a listed price of $3.6 million.

It's funny, but sometimes the Florida papers and news stations mention this next bit, and sometimes they don't:

Burke was officially pronounced dead at the hospital, but it took nine days for his family to find out he had died.

Detectives made at least six failed attempts in five days to reach Burke's wife, Dahl Wiessman Burke, said Delrish Moss, a Miami police spokesman.

His parents eventually hired a private detective, who located the body at the Medical Examiner's Office.
