The Chilton Investment Co. managing director killed in a car accident in North Carolina in April had been drinking and using cocaine, North Carolina officials said.
Benjamin Williamson was found in his submerged car off of Figure Eight Island, near Wilmington, on April 22. He had been attending a party for his mother, through whom he is a nephew of Tiger Management founder Julian Robertson.
According to the state medical examiner's report, Williamson drowned. But alcohol and cocaine were listed as contributing factors to his death.
