Authorities say the bodies of two people have been found inside a Union County home and a third person was found in the woods nearby.
Investigators say it appears the two men and one woman were killed, but they didn't detail how they may have been killed.
Authorities say a neighbor found the bodies at the Marshville home around 8:15 a.m. Saturday.
Deputies say they have found a pickup truck that was missing from the home and spoke to the person who was driving it. They didn't identify the driver, calling him only a person of interest.
Investigators identified the victims as 61-year-old Jerry Marsh, 46-year-old Ronnie Overcash and 38-year-old Crystal Hicks.
