Tragedy strikes in Destin after a visitor falls to his death off a condominium balcony.
While doing his rounds, a security guard at the complex, located at 1002 east highway 98 in Destin, discovered the body of 27-year-old Justin Trepanier of Missouri.
Authorities said Trepanier was visiting the area with four other people. One person said he had last seen him sometime around 2 a.m. when he went out on the 8th-floor balcony to smoke a cigarette following a night out.
An investigator with the Okaloosa County sheriff’s office said there is no initial indication of anything suspicious and the fall appears to be a tragic accident.
