Local Surfer Dane Williams Found Dead

Dane Chandler Williams, also known as "Downtown Dane" for his ubiquitous presence in downtown Huntington Beach, was found dead in San Diego. He was in town on a company trip, having worked as an intern for Hurley since October. His body was found wrapped in a blanket in an alley in Chollas Creek.

Williams was last seen at Sixth and K streets leaving the Hard Rock Cafe around 2 a.m. Saturday, according to San Diego police Sgt. Garry Collins. If anyone has any information about his final hours please contact the San Diego Police at (619) 531-2000.

MySpace and Facebook pages have been set up in Dane's honor. A MySpace for a DaneWilliams, 23, in Huntington Beach, describes him as being "at work" and lists his mood as "stoked." May he forever be so.
