Neighbors living near the scene of what Houston County Sheriff's Deputies term a double homicide are talking about the people who lived in the home on Chadwick Road.
Deputies say two people are in custody in connection with the shooting death of two males. They say the two were shot at the home then their bodies dumped in a wooded area just over 5 miles away near the intersection of Hwy 41, Hwy 49, and N. Houston Lake Rd.
"Really drives too close to home, I mean this happened not even 200 feet from us," said 22-year-old Joshua Young.
"Makes me wonder a little bit, but, I don't think it's going to change the way I think about living in the neighborhood," said 79-year-old Howard Smith.
Neighbors say the house was a rental home that many people lived in but aren't sure exactly how many. People living in the home were described by neighbors as "not the caliber of person" who normally lives in the neighborhood. They say occupants of the house would speed down the street, rev up cars, peel out of the driveway, play loud music, shout and argue.
"When I found out it was in that particular house, it didn't come as quite as much of a shock," Smith said.
Neighbors say early Monday morning, a man who lived at the home crashed his truck into a drainage ditch, taking out a neighbors mailbox.
Young drove past the scene as he was returning from work.
"Honestly I just didn't think anything of it, just drove on home, figured they would have called the tow truck to yank em' out," Young said.
Investigators say they learned of the double murder around 5 a.m. Monday, and they don't know how or if the crash is connected with the shooting. Investigators say they discovered the victim's bodies around noon Monday.
Identities of both the victims and suspects are being withheld.
