Details revealed in Ibis home FBI search

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - New details are emerging in the investigation into chemicals found in the Ibis Country Club in West Palm Beach.

The FBI served a search warrant at 18-year-old Martin Morganroth's home at 10368 Osprey Trace within the Ibis Country Club last Friday.

According to a search and seizure warrant obtained by Fox 29, FBI investigators took several samples of chemicals, PVC piping and electrical tape from Morganroth's home.

Morganroth's attorney, Richard Springer, said the chemicals the FBI seized were hydrochloric acid, acetone and an advanced version of hydrogen peroxide.

Springer said Morganroth purchased the chemicals at a pool company near the Ibis Country Club.

It was that pool company, according to Springer, that tipped off investigators that something didn't seem right about Morganroth's purchases.

The FBI has not commented on the case, only saying the investigation is ongoing. "The ball is in the court of United States Attorney's Office," said Springer. "They are doing their investigation, deciding what to do. So I'm sort of on hold."

The chemicals taken during the search warrant process were detonated at another location other than the Ibis Country Club on Sunday, according to West Palm Beach city spokesman Chase Scott.

Springer said Morganroth is currently living in the Osprey Trace home with his morther, Margaret O'Shaughnessy.

Morganroth is in school, according to Springer, but which school wasn't revealed.
