LOWNDES CO., AL (WSFA) -

More than 18 hours after authorities confirmed the investigation of an apparent homicide in Lowndes County, very little information remains confirmed.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation and the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department continue to investigate but say the senative nature of the investigation is keeping them from releasing any details.

No suspects or victims have been identified, nor has a specific location or possible motive in the case.

The investigation is in the same county where twin 9-year-old brother and sister Jordan and Taylor Dejerinett, along with their 73-year-old babysitter, Jack Mac Girdner, disappeared Sunday. No connection has been made to the three at this point.

WSFA 12 News went to the home of the twins again Wednesday where there were numerous cars in the driveway. Several family members confirmed that the children's mother, Terrye Moore, was at the home, but said that she did not wish to speak at this time.

A family member said Moore was release from a hospital Tuesday evening, though he would not say why she'd originally checked into the facility.

Moore said in an interview Monday that she and Girdner have been friends for approximately three years and that she does not believe he would harm her children.

The Alabama Department of Public Safety still has an ACTIVE missing persons alert regarding all three individuals.

WSFA 12 News remains in close contact with authorities. We'll share any information that can be confirmed as soon as possible.
