Pinehurst resident, Robert Eugene Tweed, was found deceased floating in Pinehurst Lake by authorities Tuesday evening. After coming home, Lorraine Tweed, could not locate her husband, so authorities were dispatched to their house on Lake Point Drive and found him in the lake behind their house, according to Pinehurst Police Department.
Mr. Tweed was a former Board of Trustee member of Firsthealth Moore Regional Hospital and Mrs. Tweed is a former Pinehurst Village Councilwoman. They have been Pinehurst residents since 1996.
Foul play is not suspected, according to Pinehurst Police Department, but an autopsy from the state’s Medical Examiner’s Office will be able to determine the exact cause of death. Mr. Tweed was 82 years old.
