What started as a missing person case in Lawrence County is now a homicide investigation.

Detectives have two persons of interest in custody after human remains were found.

The sheriff’s office says a family member reported a relative missing last week.

Authorities say the relative hadn’t been seen for several weeks.

The sheriff hasn’t released the victim’s name or where the remains were found.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office and the Newton County Sheriff’s Office helped with the case.
