A young British soldier who died on holiday in Florida while attending Ultra Music Festival 2015.
Private Shaun Cole, 22, died after suffering blunt force trauma to his head on the same street as his Miami hotel. His body was found on the pavement of Biscayne Boulevard by a local man in the early hours of Sunday.
He has been described as a popular young man who was “full of promise” and had a “flair for life”.
A witness told an American news channel that he saw Shaun running along the street with blood coming from his ears before collapsing on the pavement.
Detectives cordoned off the street while a major investigation was launched, and the death is being treated as “unclassified”.
Officers in Miami say it will be several days before they confirm whether the death is suspected of being a murder or an accident.
