Toxicology Report Does Not Aid Case
Police still at a loss about what happened to Dane Williams.
5200 Landis Street
January 29, 6:30 p.m.
The Medical Examiner’s Office released the toxicology report on March 27 regarding Dane Williams, 23, an Orange County resident who went missing from the Gaslamp on January 26, 2008.
His dead body was found in the Chollas Creek neighborhood, lying on a plaid blanket.
The report states that Williams’ blood alcohol level was .17. The legal limit considered too drunk to drive is .08. Traces of depressant drugs to help with sleep and to relax from anxiety were also found. The report, however, did not indicate that anything in William’s blood contributed to his mysterious death.
Police are still baffled as to what happened to William during the three days he went missing; they are trying to piece together a timeline and determine what, and how, led to his death from the time he walked out of the Hard Rock Café downtown.
He was in San Diego for a clothing marketing convention.
Williams did not return to his hotel room or call anyone. He did not change his clothes or get money from his room. His strange disappearance prompted a three-day search undertaken by family and friends.
On the morning of January 29, 2008, at 6:30 a.m., a citizen left his residence on Landis Street and observed a person lying in the north alley.
This was Williams’ body.
