Police release name of North Topsail Beach drowning victim

NORTH TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WWAY) — North Topsail Beach Mayor Dan Tuman said a man in his early 60s died while surfing alone Wednesday afternoon.

Tuman said investigators were alerted to the drowning by a witness who found the victim unresponsive in the surf in the Village Sound area just before 3:30 p.m.

Police say the victim was Michael Moore, 63, of Sneads Ferry.

An autopsy in Jacksonville this morning indicated a heart-related medical problem most likely led to Moore drowning.
