LOGANVILLE - Walton County authorities said a man and woman - both in their late 50s or early 60s - were found dead in a Loganville home Friday morning.
A family member found the bodies in a ranch-style, brick home at 7008 Memory Lane about 10 a.m., police said. Investigators were still notifying family members late Friday and could not identify them.
Police had not declared a cause of death but had not ruled out homicide, said Chief Deputy Bruce Wright of the Walton County Sheriff's Office.
Wright declined to offer details about the appearance of the scene where the two bodies were found.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the case "to determine if we have a crime - we may not even have a crime," said Wright.
Police are calling the deaths suspicious. An autopsy - to be performed at a GBI crime lab in Decatur - should yield more clues, Wright said.
"We'll know more once we get the bodies to the crime lab," he said.
The case marks the second suspicious death in Walton County this week.
Police arrested 17-year-old Daniel Luke Ferguson on Friday for killing a man who lived across the street from his Monroe home, said Wright.
The victim, Tom Daniels, was 94-years old and "still driving a car," said Wright.
Wright said the motive in Daniels' murder is still unclear.
