2 bodies found buried at Effingham Co. home, suspected to be missing children The Effingham County Sheriff's Office said they're now looking into the deaths of two suspected missing children after a "gruesome discovery" on Thursday. A release from the sheriff's office said deputies went to the 400 block of Rosebud Place just after 10 p.m. Wednesday after getting a tip that 14-year-old Mary Crocker was missing and feared dead. That girl reportedly hadn't been seen "in weeks." Family members in the house told deputies that the teenager "had gone to live with her mother," and investigators determined they were being given conflicting information. According to the release, information that 49-year-old Elwyn Crocker gave to deputies gave them probable cause to search the property -- that's when investigators found two bodies buried in the yard. The sheriff's office said they believe the bodies to be the 14-year-old girl and her 14-year-old brother Elwyn Crocker, Jr. Mary reportedly hadn't been seen since October of this year, but her brother hadn't been seen since November 2016. Deputies said no one ever filed a missing persons report for either either child. According to the release, an autopsy will officially determine their identities. Investigators said they another child was found at the house and taken to a local hospital. The children's father, Elwyn Crocker, is reportedly charged with concealing the death of another and cruelty to children in the first degree. The children's step-mother, 33-year-old Candice Crocker, as well as their step-grandmother, 50-year-old Kim Wright, have both also been charged with concealing the death of another and cruelty to children in the first degree, the release said.
