    AL - Duston Turner, 39, & Jennifer Phillips, 30, Quinton, 14 Sept 2016

    Duston “Dusty” Turner, 39, and Jennifer Leigh Phillips, 30, were last seen Sept. 14 near their home at 7190 Sharon Boulevard in Quinton.

    Their remains MAY have been found:
    The volunteers told deputies they were somewhat familiar with the area and had been provided a map by Walker County Sheriff's investigators that indicated the areas where the missing couple's cell phones were last used. They were walking the area and discovered the remains in the woods, Christian said.

    Once on scene, deputies found one set of partially buried human remains in a shallow grave. Deputies also found an area of disturbed earth adjacent to it that is believed to be a second shallow grave.

    The scene has been secured to await the arrival of a Forensic Recovery Team from the Jefferson County Coroner's Office, which will take place Monday morning.

    Christian said the remains have not been identified and he did not identify the missing couple. However, volunteers have been searching this weekend for a couple missing since Sept. 14. Duston "Dusty" Turner, 39, and Jennifer Phillips, 30, were last seen at their home in Quinton, according to family members.

    There's such little info - I wonder what happened to them and what was going in their lives. How did they end up dead & buried? (If that is actually them.)

    My first thought was murder-suicide but if both bodies were buried that's impossible, right?

    Unfortunately, I didn't read about their missing case until reading about the bodies being found. Seems there was very little press about them being missing since Sept 14.

    I hope there is Justice for Dusty and Jennifer. Prayers to their family members who loved them.

    "I'm sure that whoever murdered these two probably thinks they got away with it and we hope this sends a message today that 'you have not,''' said Jefferson County sheriff's Chief Deputy Randy Christian. "Our guys are pretty darn good at what they do, and they will not give up on this until they bring somebody to justice."

    Christian acknowledged widespread speculation that the deaths of Duston "Dusty" Turner, 39, and Jennifer Phillips, 30, could be drug-related. "That's not going to surprise us, and I don't think it will surprise anyone and I believe at the end of the day, that's what we'll find,'' he said. "But, regardless of the motive, there's never a good reason for this kind of violence. These two didn't deserve that kind of fate. They deserve justice, their families deserve justice and we're going to get it for them."

    Do more than belong: participate.
    Do more than care: help.
    Do more than believe: practice.
    Do more than be fair: be kind.
    Do more than forgive: forget.
    Do more than dream: work.

    From your link:

    "The main suspect in this case was murdered in an unrelated case,'' said Chief Deputy Randy Christian. "There are other suspects involved in our case and we are going to bring them to justice. Hopefully this reward will prompt someone with information to expedite those arrest for us."
