A BRITON murdered on the first day of a trip to Florida could have been killed in a robbery, police said yesterday. Anthony Pike, 42, son of a wealthy hotelier in Spain, was naked and had no belongings when he was found shot dead in woods at Virginia Key.

Police contacted officials in Britain to confirm the identity after discovering a form with Mr Pike's name on it lying near the body, which was found on Monday - 12 hours after he arrived in the US on a business trip.
