FBI joins probe into comic book artist's disappearance

The disappearance of a comic book artist who went missing while snorkeling off Grand Cayman’s East End in March has now drawn the attention of U.S. federal investigators. 

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service confirmed Monday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is working with local police in connection with the “open investigation” into Norman Lee’s disappearance. 

A police spokesperson said the FBI’s participation is similar in many “investigations involving missing persons from other jurisdictions.” 

Mr. Lee, 47, went missing while snorkeling with his wife off the eastern coast of Grand Cayman, near the former Reef Resort and Morritt’s Tortuga on Thursday, March 5. According to police, Mr. and Mrs. Lee were separated during the swim. Police said Mrs. Lee said she swam back to shore, but could not find her husband and “raised the alarm.” 

Mr. Lee was reported to have vanished about 250 yards off shore. 

He has never been found and police have since presumed him to be deceased. 

The RCIPS has not commented regarding whether Mr. Lee’s disappearance was considered suspicious.

  1. The waters off Cayman is beautiful very clean and clear and enchanting, almost spell bounding to a point, but the ocean floor is tricky with layers from high to quick drop offs. One minute you can be here and the other minute disappear in the ocean.
    Really sad about Mr Lee’s disappearance, like so many others, from this enchanting waters; and hopefully Mrs Lee will find some peace in her heart as she watch the ripple waves.
