Coroner needs help identifying dead man

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Authorities are asking for help in trying to locate family of a man that was found dead on January 15 in Maxcy Gregg Park.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts identified the deceased as 50-year-old Bryan Gilbert Williamson. Williamson had no known address and was apparently living on the street for some time, according to Watts. 

Williamson died from natural causes and was found with personal items including paperwork that might suggest connections to New Mexico and Oklahoma. Watts only described Williamson as a white male.  There was no other description information released. 

A dog that was a mix of Collie and Retriever was also found at the scene and has been turned over to Richland County Animal Care.

Anyone with information about possible next of kin is asked to please call the Richland County Coroner's office at 803-576-1799.
