Body found on south end
Two Fernandina Beach residents driving on the beach at Amelia Island State Park on Tuesday afternoon spotted the body of a white male lying on top of one of the dunes, according to a case report on the incident issued by the Nassau County Sheriff's Office.
Reporting to police that "something just did not look right," at first the couple attempted to get the attention of the man by honking and waving. When he did not move, they called 911.
When NCSO deputies arrived they found Christopher David Woods, 31, who appeared to have committed suicide with a small-caliber handgun, according to the report.
Funeral services for Woods will be held at Spring Hill Baptist Church on Saturday, June 3 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers please donate in honor of Christopher to the Boys & Girls Club.
