MIAMI – A search warrant affidavit says the bodies of Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and two of his friends had a strong odor of alcohol on them when they were recovered by divers following a boat crash off Miami Beach. The warrant released by the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office also says investigators found evidence that the boat was speeding when it slammed into a jetty Sept. 25.

The affidavit says officials found a receipt for alcohol from American Social Bar & Kitchen, where the trio had been before the crash.
