‘Strong odor’ of alcohol on Jose Fernandez after crash
A search warrant affidavit says the bodies of Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and two of his friends had a strong odor of alcohol on them when they were recovered by divers following a boat crash off Miami Beach.
The warrant released by the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office Wednesday also says investigators found evidence that the boat was speeding when it slammed into a jetty Sept. 25.
Fernandez, 27-year-old Emilio Jesus Macias and 25-year-old Eduardo Rivero died.
The crash is being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
