• 2 people found dead in Cobb County home

    ACWORTH, Ga. - Two people were found dead inside a Cobb County home Wednesday afternoon.

    Officers were called to a home in the Brookstone community in Acworth on a report of a person down, Officer Mike Bowman with Cobb police said.

    “There is no reason for anyone in the area to be concerned,” Bowman said.

    A grieving relative told Channel 2's Jeff Dore her daughter said the two were dead in the basement.

    Dore learned a teenager came home around 1:30 p.m. and found the bodies.

    Neighbors described a home where more than just a single family lived.

    “It’s like a boarding house, renting rooms out,” Brett Mendenhall said. “You knew something was going to happen eventually.”

    Mendenhall said numerous cars were often parked in front of the home, which was circled in yellow crime tape Wednesday.

    Michele Parkinson, who lives across the street from the home where the shootings happened, said she and others had notified the homeowner’s association previously about the amount of activity at the home and vehicles parked on the street.

    As visibly upset relatives arrived at the crime scene Wednesday afternoon, Parkinson opened her home to some as the police investigation continued.

    The Cobb County Medical Examiner’s office arrived later to remove the bodies from the home so that autopsies can be conducted.
