DEL RIO-Officers with the Cocke County Sheriff's Office reported that they arrived at a creek near Old 15th Road in Del Rio, where they found an unresponsive Steve Allen Williams, of 114 Mountain Shadow Way, in Cosby, on Tuesday, July 9, at 7:50 p.m.

Dispatch reportedly received a 911 call on a possible drowning in the area. Minutes later, dispatch cancelled the Rescue Squad and said the nature of the call was blood sugar-related, according to the report by Deputy Sheriffs Heath Willis and Jody Ball, and Det. Jason Oury.

The Del Rio Volunteer Fire Department arrived on the scene and requested law enforcement due to a possible death, the report stated.

When officers arrived, they found Williams on the ground next to the creek. He had grayish pale skin, appeared to not be breathing, and was unresponsive, the officers reported.
