Police: Father, son in BSL died from medical complications


BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WWAY) -- Boiling Spring Lakes Police say they found a father and son dead inside their home yesterday, but investigators say they died of natural causes.

Sgt. Rick Parker says an out-of-town relative called police after not hearing from John Nestor Wilson Jr., 84, and his son Greg Blackburn Wilson, 47, for several days. Officers did a welfare check at the home on North Lake Road around noon yesterday and found the men both dead. Police say they had been dead for some time.

Investigators say the medical examiner has ruled both father and son died as a result of complications with existing medical conditions.

Father, Son Passing

I am so sorry to hear about the lost of two kind customers. They shopped at the Food Lion in Southport where I waited on them many times. They were never apart and always showed kindness with a smile on their faces or in words. My heart is heavy. My customers will be dearly missed. My condolences go out to the family.
