Three family members who were found dead in their Brunswick home Sunday had been shot, according to the GBI.

Autopsies performed on the bodies of Carson Holliman, 64, his wife Vondell Holliman, 63, and their grandson Christopher Holliman, 24, showed all died of gunshots, GBI agent Stacy Carson said.

“Somebody entered that residence and killed all three individuals,” Carson told the Florida Times-Union.

Carson wouldn’t elaborate to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on theories authorities might have or possible motives in the shootings.

“We’re encouraging people to come forward, whether it’s something small or something big,” she said.

Carson said authorities are not yet able to determine exactly when the slayings happened.

Members of Zion Baptist Church went to the Hollimans’ house to check on them after they uncharacteristically missed services Sunday morning, then called police, the Times-Union previously reported. The last time neighbors recalled seeing the family was Friday.
