Probe continues into Florida man’s death in North Dakota

WATFORD CITY — Authorities here continue to investigate the death of a Florida man whose body was discovered Thursday near a construction site in northwest Bismarck.

Bismarck police said the man, identified as 31-year-old Clint Joseph Williams, had recently moved to the Watford City area.

Authorities believe Williams died in McKenzie County, where the sheriff’s office said Tuesday it had no updates to release on its investigation.

The Watford City and Dickinson police departments originally launched an investigation into reports of a deceased person who had overdosed on drugs and was being transported in the trunk of a vehicle to Florida, according to a news release Friday from the sheriff’s office.

Williams’ body was found Thursday near a construction site at Washington Street and Aspen Lane in Bismarck.

Authorities were awaiting the results of an autopsy.
