The three people found killed early Sunday afternoon at 2220 Wolfe St. were identified Monday morning as a couple in their 60s and their 24-year-old grandson, according to Brunswick police.
Police identified the dead as Carson Holliman, 64, and his wife, Vondell Holliman, 63, and their 24-year-old grandson, Christopher Holliman. Stacey Carson, Special Agent in Charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Kingsland Office, confirmed at around noon Monday that the three were victims of homicide. She would not comment on how the three were killed.
The bodies have been taken to the GBI Crime Lab in Savannah for autopsy.
"We're working this as a homicide investigation at this point," Carson said. "We're in the early stages of this, trying check all avenues and leads. And there is nothing more we can release at this time."
Brunswick Police discovered the bodies at 1:13 p.m. Sunday after responding to call to check on the family's welfare. Their next door neighbor, Reginald Beckham, said the pastor of the church the Hollimans attend came to check on them because they did not attend church that day. The pastor called police when the did not answer the door, he said.
"They usually go to church on Sunday morning," said Beckham, 45, who said he has lived next door to the Hollimans for two decades. "The preacher came by and asked did I see Mr. and Mrs. Holliman this morning. I said, no. He was worried because they didn't show up for church.
"They was good people," Beckham said. "Good people."
