Investigators continue to gather evidence in Telfair deaths

Numerous areas of Telfair County have been searched Numerous areas of Telfair County have been searched
McRae, GA (WALB) -  Telfair County Sheriff Chris Steverson say investigators are looking to learn more about the last moments of Bud and June Runion in Telfair County.

 Sheriff Steverson is still waiting on autopsy results to determine if the bodies of a man and woman found near Webb Cemetery Road on Monday afternoon are that of the Cobb County couple who drove to McRae last week to meet with a man who answered Bud Runion's Craiglist Ad to buy a vintage Mustang.

A first appearance hearing could be held late Tuesday afternoon or early Wednesday morning for Jay Towns. Sheriff Steverson says Towns was the last person to speak with the Runions.

Towns surrendered at the Sheriff's office Monday morning and is charged with providing false information and conspiracy to commit theft by deception.

Sheriff Steverson says right now investigators have no other suspects and it is important for them to take their time and build a rock solid case before filing additional charges in this case.

The Runion's car which was found submerged in a pond is still being processed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Tara Herrschaft will have the latest in the investigation in live reports from McRae starting 5:00 p.m. on WALB News 10.
