I believe this is newsworthy because it of the fact that it was so close to home. Being in FL, we get plenty of immigrants from Cuba and Haiti, etc. but its not often that they turn up dead so close to our beaches. I personally believe that this has gotten so much attention for the fact that it is not certain if they were migrants or not. Officials have not yet been able to determine who they are nor have they found any other evidence that they were migrating.
Also, from what officials say, the bodies had to have been out there for more than just a few days in order to show the kind of damage they did. Plus, had they been out there on a raft, boat, stranded, etc. coast guards would have most likely been able to see them at some point. Which brings up the discussion on whether or not they were there accidentally. And when I say accidentally I mean if someone actually left them there. This is what some conspiracy theorists online are saying on the matter at hand, its certainly a possibility.
