A nephew of Julian Robertson and a hedge fund manager at Chilton Investment Co. was found dead in North Carolina yesterday.
Benjamin Williamson's car was found submerged off of a boat ramp on Figure Eight Island. It took a New Hanover County Sheriff's Office helicopter unit to find the 2012 Hyundai Sonata.
Williamson was reported missing on Sunday morning; he had not been seen since leaving a party for his mother, Robertson's sister Blanche, on Figure Eight Island, near Wilmington, at about 2 a.m. on Sunday.
The Sheriff's Office said that foul play is not suspected in the death of the 55-year-old Raleigh native, who lived in New York. The investigation continues.
Williamson was a managing director and portfolio manager of hedged U.S. equities at Chilton.
Williamson's death comes less than two years after the death of Robertson's wife of 38 years, Josie, after a long battle with breast cancer.
