Two sets of human remains were found Tuesday morning in a wooded area near a Stockbridge shopping center, and investigators fear there could be more victims yet to be uncovered.

The Henry County Police Department is working with the GBI to identify the two sets of remains, which were found near the intersection of Hudson Bridge Road and Oakwood Manor Drive. The immediate area is home to an apartment complex surrounded by several fast-food restaurants and a strip mall anchored by a Kroger.

Police did not say in what state the remains were found. At this point in their investigation, there are more questions than answers, according to a Henry police spokesman.

“We are investigating leads that we have of additional potential victims that may be out there,” Capt. Randy Lee told Channel 2 Action News. “We’re not ruling anything out. We’re taking this investigation where it leads us.”

Lee said investigators are considering the possibility the deaths are related to an earlier homicide case that resulted in three arrests. Dennis Lane, Cleounsee Fisher and Ronisha Preckwinkle are being held in the county jail on murder charges related to a July 9 death at the Hudson Bridge Townhomes, less than a half-mile from the scene of Tuesday’s discovery.

No further information about the July 9 case has been released, including the name of the victim.

Last week, Henry County police investigated in the area of Ga. 42 and Campground Road after another set of human remains was found. That discovery was believed to be related to a missing person case from 2014, police told Channel 2.
