BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Authorities are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the death of a couple and their autistic grandson.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said the reward was doubled Tuesday afternoon.
Brunswick police have not said how 64-year-old Carson Holliman his wife 62-year-old Vondell Holliman and their 24-year-old grandson Christopher Holliman died.
“All sorts of sketchy details, but hopefully this investigation will turn up the truth,” Tony Polite with Zion Baptist Church said.
Officers found the Hollimans dead during a welfare check at their Wolfe Street home Sunday.
Members of their church, who asked police to check on the family, say they want answers about what happened to the Hollimans.
“Our whole membership was shocked,” Polite said.
Church members and neighbors say they believe this is a case of mistaken identity.
“Some of the church members came over and they found out that the air conditioning unit was out of the window, so perhaps they entered the house that way,” Polite said.
Police say foul play was involved in what appears to be a home invasion.
Detectives spent Monday evening going door to door, trying to get answers.
Howard McKenzie, the nephew of Carson and Vondell, spoke to Action News Jax Monday morning.
“I have my own speculations as to what happened. Innocent people like this, they lose their lives, behind a situation like this,” McKenzie said.
