LUMBERTON — A man and a woman were found dead by their daughter this afternoon outside of their Lumberton home, according to Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey.
The man and woman, whose names are not being released until their families are notified, were found dead in the patio area of their home on the 1500 block of Old Whiteville Road, just outside Lumberton city limits.
Sealey declined to elaborate on the injuries the two had suffered.
According to Sealey, the 911 call came in at about 2:30 p.m. Four hours later, deputies are still on the scene “interviewing family and witnesses and canvassing the neighborhood trying to figure out what happened,” Sealey said.
