Coral Springs Police have identified the dead body found yesterday near US-441 and Wiles Road. Weston Faulkner, a 20-year-old male from North Carolina, died of an apparent overdose. The cause of death is not expected to be verified for at least a few months.
Our research indicates that Mr. Faulkner is a graduate of South Rowan High School in China Grove, North Carolina, a suburb of Charlotte. He was a lineman on the football team weighing up to or over 300 pounds.
The young man was troubled by drug abuse and depression, and well aware that he was at risk.
It appears he was living in South Florida at least off and on for the past year or two, with at least some minimal connection to Boca Raton. We have not been able to determine more than that.
We’ve noticed some big changes happening at Promenade in Coconut Creek. First, as you can see above, they will be adding a theater:
Coming Fall 2014: Silverspot Cinema, a 47,000 square foot multiplex 12-screen theater with leather stadium seating, plus a restaurant.
Their map of the site shows the theater on the currently empty piece of land on the southwest corner of the property behind the south parking structure.
Also Promenade now has a green market on Sundays from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm:
Although Promenade is a few miles south of Boca, we go there and know quite a few others from West Boca who go there too.
Promenade is on the southwest corner of Lyons and Wiles:
Having it on Sunday here is a nice balance with the West Boca green market on Glades at Boca Rio, which is on Saturdays.
