WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A preliminary autopsy report is in for a New York investor found in a submerged car off Figure 8 Island.

The report says Benjamin Robert Williamson died from saltwater drowning. Williamson’s body was found in a car off of a boat ramp April 22.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office says there is no evidence of foul play. They do not expect the final autopsy report for several months.

    I can’t help but wonder if this gentleman had a bit to much to drink, got disoriented and drove into the water. Maybe he wasn’t able to save himself. Such a tragedy for him and his family.
