BUTLER COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

Saturday evening, two bodies were found alongside a dirt road in south Alabama.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office called it a double homicide and said initially heard about it from a passerby around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

"A subject had found two bodies off in the woods off a dirt road. The subject met us at a location and carried us back and showed us where they were at and so we have been working on it and it was confirmed that we do have a double homicide here in the south end of Butler County,” said Butler County Sheriff Kenny Harden.

Harden confirmed the homicide happened in the Garland District near where Covington County and Conecuh County meet.

The sheriff's office spoke with potential witnesses, looking for clues as to who a possible suspect could be.

“We worked it all night, and rain hindered us some but we were able to get through processing the scene so we’re moving forward and talking to people and trying to come up with a motive why,” Harden said.

Names of the victims have yet to be released. Harden said family members of the victims have yet to be notified.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Butler County Sheriff's Office.
