Fatal Beach Balcony Mishap

A 21 year old Callaway man died Monday night in a balcony mishap at a Panama City Beach condominium.

21 year old Justin Alexander Seamans of Betty Louise Drive apparently fell from the 10th floor of the parking garage at Laketown Wharf condominiums at 9851 South Thomas Drive.

Panama City Beach police found Seamans body lying on the floor of the parking garage between the garage and condominium buildings. He was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical personnel.

Panama City Beach Police say no foul play has been indicated so far in the investigation which is continuing.

    theres a video on youtube from a police office earlier this year when he was all messed up on that synthetic marijuana stuff they call "bath salts" if you go on you tube and type in "effects of bacthsalts" his video comes up :( very sad and his family is in my prayers.

    Another balcony fall. This makes how many now. There is at least one every six months. Since I moved here five years ago.

    This young man was a friend to my sons. He played soccer and worked with them. During those times I had the pleasure to talk to him he was also smiling and well mannered. He was loved by his friends and his teammates. Both my sons are finding it hard to understand and want to know what happen to their friend. This not a "Mishap" but a "Tragedy". Our hearts and prayers go out to his Family. He will be missed

    This is crazy b/c my husband and I just got back from Laketown Wharf on Sunday and were discussing how dangerous the condos are....meaning, the railing is a lot lower than other condos, the stairs are a mile from the rooms so if a fire started we'd probably burn up before getting there. Anyway, this is really tragic and am keeping his family in my prayers.

    Wasn't there another fatal fall between the parking garage and the condo building last year?

    If it's found he was intoxicated or had drugs in his system, wouldn't it be considered a "mishap"? Otherwise it would be suicide or murder, correct? The difference between your question and mine is I said "if", and you said "he was". Nowhere in you question did leave the possibility for maybe or if. Is there something you know about this?

    Although the likelihood of intoxication is great, it's not really fair and is also disrespectful to assume that the victim is fully to blame. So, now I ask Mark - when the toxicology report comes back and it's found that he WASN'T, I wonder if you will, in the future, not be an example of embarrassment by being so quick to judge such a tragic event for a person's family by disrespectfully being asinine? Even IF this person WAS under the influence, it would STILL be a mishap. SMDH

    When the toxicology report comes back and it's found that he was intoxicated or had other drugs in his system, I wonder if WJHG will do a follow-up report on the findings and still downplay this as a "mishap?"
