A software engineer from Andhra Pradesh was found dead under mysterious circumstances at the Miami Beach in Florida, after he told his friends that he was going for a walk.
The deceased, identified as 25-year-old Bommala Chaitanya Kumar, was reported to have recently completed his post-graduation from the Atlantis University of Florida in the United States.
Chaitanya was a native of Machilipatnam in Andhra's Krishna district.
Speaking to reporters, his father B Rammohan, who works in the Machilipatnam Municipality, said that Chaitanya completed his BTech (ECE) from Gudlavalleru College of Engineering near the coastal town, before he moved to the US for his post-graduation. He was reported to be looking for employment.
â€śOur son was hunting for a job in the United States, and he told us that he would return home after finding one. We were all hoping to see him soon. We donâ€™t know how this happened,â€ť his father added.
Chaitanya had last visited his hometown in 2016, during Christmas vacations, and had returned to the United States shortly thereafter.
Speaking to The Hindu, District Collector B Lakshmikantam said that efforts were being made to bring the body back home.
Last month, a techie from Telangana was killed in road accident as he was cycling in Miami in the United States.

He was rushed to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
"It is with profound sadness that I must inform all of you that we have lost a member of our IT family this weekend. Bharath Reddy Narahari, Reddy as we all knew him and loved him by was involved in an accident, which tragically took his life too soon,â€ť Allen Montgomery, the director of systems and development for Baptist Health, where Bharath was working, was quoted as saying.
