— Cumberland County detectives will be in Spring Lake Tuesday canvassing for more information about the death of a 68-year-old man who was found inside his home on Rutherford Drive Sunday.

Authorities have not said how Williams died or why they suspect his death is a homicide. The state medical examiner will perform an autopsy.
