A former Carthage resident and son of a Carthage developer was found dead on a construction site in downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas on Thursday.
Fayetteville police Sgt. Craig Stout said on Friday that Breck Joseph Wilson, 48, was found dead Thursday morning by a city worker near the intersection of Spring Street and Block Avenue near Fayetteville's downtown Square.
Stout said Wilson's death appears to be an accident, but they are still investigating.
Stout said officers were called to the scene at 8:30 a.m. Thursday when the body was found. He said officers checked surveillance video of businesses in the area and determined the accident happened around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. Stout said Wilson apparently fell through an orange construction fence and struck his head on a concrete retaining wall.
He said no foul play was suspected and the body had been sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab in Little Rock for an autopsy sometime this weekend.
Neel Baucom, with Knell Mortuary in Carthage, said Breck Wilson was the son of Bill Wilson, who built the Breckenwood Addition on Macon Street just south of the Carthage Municipal Golf Course. Baucom said Knell would be handling the services, but he had no details as of Friday because police had not released Breck Wilson's body.
Breck Wilson had a career in movies for some time, staring in the movie “Nixon,” opposite Anthony Hopkins, according to his biography on IMDb .com. He also had a modeling career overseas. The biography says he was born in Carthage and attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville before heading west on Route 66 to Hollywood.
