Howard said it is too early to determine how the children ended up inside the car. The house isn’t the girls’ family home, but they often spent time there, according to police.
Howard told the newspaper that the toddlers were last seen Saturday night when they were put to bed. A caregiver made the 911 call, he said.
The children’s bodies were taken to the GBI Crime Lab for autopsies.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Hinesville police detectives at 912-368-8215.
