Steven Charles Behre, a 52-year-old resident of Middlesex, NJ, died of apparent drowning at Lake Sequoia Tuesday evening, July 7.
Moore County Sheriff's Detective Kathy Williams told The Times that Behre was found in the water near the dock at 122 Overlook Drive by family members, who began CPR.
The home is owned by Roger Behre. Mr. Behre and his late wife, Claire, retired to Seven Lakes in 1993.
Williams said the emergency call came into the 9-1-1 center at 6:17 pm. Seven Lakes EMS, Seven Lakes Volunteer Fire and Rescue, and West End Fire and Rescue all responded to the scene, taking over efforts to revive Behre.
Williams said the incident "looks like a bad accident" but could not speculate on whether the cause of death was drowning or some other medical event.
Behre was transported to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital. The cause of death will be determined by an autopsy conducted by the Chief Medical Examiner's Office in Raleigh.
