Two Bodies Found In Rural Hancock County

Hancock County Sheriff's deputies are investigating what they say is a double murder. The bodies of a man and a woman were found Sunday evening in a shallow grave. Both bodies were badly decomposed.

The discovery was made by a couple who had just bought the 13 acres of land, located off Lower Bay Road in the Clermont Harbor area of Hancock County. They were clearing the property when they found the bodies.

Right now, we don't know the names of the vicitms or how they died. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday evening.

Sheriff's officials are asking help from anyone who might know of a couple that has been reported missing recently.
