19 year old drowns in country club pond

Jacksonville — A young adult is dead after being pulled from a pond at Royal St. Augustine Golf and Country Club, off 4 Mile Road.  The 19 year old was pulled from the pond after golfers said he arrived in a car and made some unusual statements to people in the area.  The young man was seen swimming in the murky water soon after, and golfers jumped in to help him when he appeared to go under the water and not come back up, but they couldn’t find him.  Rescue crews pulled him from the water a short time later, but he could not be revived.  The man has been identified as Tristan William Wingo Peralta.  Peralta is listed as a St. Johns County resident.

No foul play is suspected in the death, but deputies are waiting on toxicology results to see if drugs or alcohol played a part in the death.  The teen has not been identified.
