Two bodies found in burned-out car in Crawford County

Two people were found dead in a burned-out vehicle in the woods in Crawford County on Sunday.

J.T. Ricketson of the GBI's Perry office says the bodies were badly burned and still unidentified.

He said, although their cause of death is unknown, they're investigating the case as a possible homicide.

"We're not ruling anything out, from accidental to homicide," he said.

The bodies were found around 9:30 a.m. Sunday in woods behind a home at 4901 Marshall Mill Road after a Crawford County deputy noticed black smoke coming out of the woods. Firefighters found the two bodies in the back seat.

The fire happened less than a quarter mile from a youth Motocross event, although Ricketson said there's no known connection.

He said the vehicle was a 2015 Kia Soul recently rented from the Enterprise Rent-a-Car in Warner Robins.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday at a GBI crime lab in Macon. Ricketson said investigators are still searching the car, which was taken to Crawford County fire headquarters.

Anyone with information on the case can call the GBI in Perry, GA at (478) 987-4545 or the Crawford County Sheriff's Office at (478) 836-3116.
