Vigil planned for local man following ‘suspicious’ death

From the Las Vegas Optic

A well-known fixture in the Meadow City was found dead Friday afternoon. Las Vegas Police confirm that the body of William Smith Jr., better known to most in Las Vegas as “Skip,” was found in an alleyway between 5th Street and 6th Street, just south of Robertson High School. Smith was 71.

Police have not said how Smith died, but according to Chief of Police David Bibb, Smith’s death is being treated as suspicious.
“The nature of where he was found makes it suspicious, but we’ll know more after the autopsy,” Chief Bibb said.
