The Florida Keys—the ‘fake your death’ capital of the world
Why do people go to the Florida Keys to fake their death? Because of the water: "all the water — the ocean, the channels, the bay — all plausible places for a body never to be found."

Florida Keys have been a place for many to stage their own deaths
from The Miami Herald

Some people come to the Florida Keys to dive the coral reefs or fish for tarpon. Others come to party in Key West. And then there are a desperate few who come to the subtropical island chain for a more sinister activity: faking their own deaths.
"We've had so many over the years," Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay said. "The underlying reason usually is a bankruptcy, a divorce, an imminent arrest or the feds coming down on them."
