Grandson finds grandparents dead inside Barrow County home

BARROW COUNTY, Ga. — Authorities are investigating after two people were found dead Monday afternoon at a home in Barrow County.

Channel 2 Action News has learned a grandson found his grandparents dead inside the home on South Ridge Road and called police.

"I don't know what to think, it's just sad. It's really sad," neighbor Eddie Turner said.

Neighbors watched from inside their homes as investigators worked late into the night.

Investigators from the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office and Georgia Bureau of Investigation have interviewed multiple relatives and spoken with neighbors such as Turner.


“He just asked me if I saw any suspicious activity out here last night. And I said, ‘No, I hadn't really been outside. Didn't hear anything. No,’” Turner said.

Right now, investigators are focused on two homes in the cul de sac: The first one is where the grandson made the disturbing discovery. Neighbors told Channel 2's Michael Seiden that the second home wrapped in crime tape belongs to a relative.

Detectives won’t say if foul play is involved in the couple's death.

The sheriff said an update is expected Tuesday morning that could include the victims' identities.
