If someone drowns over the Marianas Trench, their body will never touch the sea floor because the buoyancy of the elements in their bodies can't surpass the pressure of the deep sea. amirite?

The voters have decided that spurtle is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

Your fleshy parts would probably never reach the bottom, but once they rotted away, your bones certainly would. Bone density is about 3 g/cc, and sea water density at the bottom of the trench is about 1.08 g/cc.
 
Denser solids will always sink in a less-dense liquid.

They could....in the belly of a Great White.
