One of the most tragic passings of the year was also the most mysterious, despite an outpouring of support from friends, family and the company the victim worked for: the unsolved death of Dane Williams, 23. Last seen alive Jan. 26 leaving a San Diego nightclub, the Huntington Beach resident and Hurley International marketing intern was found dead, wrapped in a blanket, three days later in an alley of the City Heights neighborhood. After autopsy and toxicology reports came back without a known cause of death — there was alcohol in his blood, but nowhere near a lethal amount — the police investigation ran out of easy leads.

About six months after her brother’s death, Hayley Williams felt a jolt when she thought she saw him at a bus stop. “There he is!” she remembered thinking, nearly crashing her car at the surprise. Of course, she realized a moment later, her older brother, Dane, wasn’t there. It was just one of many posters with his picture her family and the Crime Stoppers organization had posted at bus stops around Orange and San Diego counties offering a reward to solve the mystery surrounding his death.

Del Taco has stepped up to the plate and agreed to be the main sponsor of the surfing competition that Hurley International abandoned last summer. And since the show will go on and have new junior divisions it will be renamed the Del Taco Huntington Beach Pro/Junior Surf Series this May, said the series director Seth Matson.

In its own sad way, it came as a sigh of relief. The news this week that a man had been arrested in the case of Dane Williams, the Huntington Beach resident who disappeared during a convention in San Diego nearly two years ago and was found dead in an alley three days later, at least pointed to a possibility of closure in one of Southern California?s most baffling tragedies in recent years. The key word, of course, is ?possibility.? Philong Huynh, the man charged with Williams?
