    GA - Crawford Co., 2 bodies in burning rental car, Sep'15 - Names withheld

    Bodies found in burned...rental car behind...home

    A rented 2015 Kia Soul was found Sunday, burned with two bodies in the back seat, in a wooded area behind an unoccupied house in rural Crawford County....

    “The bodies were burned pretty extensively” and had not been identified by late Monday, said J.T. Ricketson, the agent in charge of the GBI’s Perry field office.

    Autopsies may not be performed until Wednesday, due to a backlog at the Macon crime lab.

    Ricketson said agents hope the autopsies will show if the people in the car were alive when the car was burned and what caused their deaths....

    ...Agents also are checking missing-persons reports....

    ...Anyone with information is asked to call the GBI’s Perry field office at 987-4545 or the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office at 836-3116....

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    Possible, I suppose, but two men versus one, and it's on the other side of Atlanta, several hours away, so it doesn't seem terribly likely. The car was rented and the article says the police have talked to the renter, so it wasn't George's car, either.

    Autopsy: Two men found in car were shot to death


    ...Investigators have possible leads on the men's identities and plan to use dental records and DNA evidence, he said. He also said investigators executed a search warrant in Macon County Wednesday searching for evidence in the case....

    Interesting about the search warrant in Macon County. Hmmm, must have been a pretty credible lead. (And, for non-Georgians, know that Macon County is NOT the location of Macon --the city-- GA, which is in Bibb County.)

    Was thinking news on this had completely dried up, but did find an older update that I had somehow missed:


    GBI investigating link between bodies in car, house fire

    The GBI is investigating whether the two bodies found in a burning Crawford County car last week were connected to a suspicious house fire in Montezuma the same morning....

    ...The house fire happened on the morning of Sept. 20 at 320 MLK Drive in Montezuma.

    That's the same morning the two men, who are still unidentified, were found in the burning car, a 2015 Kia Soul, in woods in Crawford County....

    ...Ricketson said they have leads on what happened and are working now to build probable cause....

    ...He said the GBI also believes they know they identities of the two men found in the burning car, but they're awaiting dental recoreds that they hope will confirm that....

    From December:

    http://wgxa.tv/news/local/two-bodies...nty-identified

    According to Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent J.T. Ricketson, the bodies have been identified and the GBI has met with the District Attorney's Office regarding prosecuting the case as several out of town venues may be involved.

    The names of the victims have not yet been released by law enforcement.
