GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Geneva County Sheriff’s Office confirms the vehicle found burned Tuesday on Highway 167 under the Choctawhatchee River belongs to the mother of the man now in custody connected to the crime.

Investigators also believe the mother’s remains were found inside the vehicle.
