A 37-year-old homeless woman's lifeless body was discovered this morning at Hollywood Beach.
The couple along with two other homeless friends were sleeping on a blanket under a lifeguard stand in the 3800 block of Ocean Drive.
Dickerson, 40, told police he awoke sometime before 7 a.m. and noticed his girlfriend was not moving. When he realized her lips were blue, he tried to resuscitate her, then headed to a fire station to ask for help.
More than likely, a cause of death will not be determined until the medical examiner's report is complete or until toxicology results are evaluated.
Dickerson says that Garcia was a mother of four and had been sleeping under the lifeguard stand for several days while looking for work.
