The Tribune-Review Thursday, January 10, 2008

A Greene County man was discovered dead in a crashed automobile less than a day after he was reported missing. Robert B. Cumpston Jr., 36, of Greensboro was found inside the passenger compartment of a Pontiac Sunfire that crashed into Dunkard Creek in Dunkard Township, said state police at Waynesburg. Cumpston was pronounced dead at 12:05 p.m. Tuesday by Greene County Coroner Greg Rohanna, police said. Results of an autopsy that was to be performed Wednesday by forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril H. Wecht were unavailable.

State police at Waynesburg said Cumpston was traveling north on Route 88 when he failed to negotiate a sharp left-hand curve. His vehicle continued through a grassy area and over an embankment into the creek. Cumpston had been reported missing at 4:50 p.m. Monday, less than 24 hours before his body was discovered. Police said the exact time of the crash is unknown.
