Back in March we reported the sad news that comics artist Norman Lee had disappeared while snorkeling the Cayman Islands, and was presumed dead. But in a strange twist, it turns out that an investigation into his disappearance is still open and the FBI has teamed with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service for the hunt. The news was reported by Cayman 27, and no further details were released and the FBI would not comment on whether foul play was suspected.
Lee, 47, was snorkeling with his wife when they became separated. He never returned to shore and several days of intense air and naval search did not produce a body. Reports at the time said that a strong current had hindered the search efforts. Lee’s body has never been found.
