HOT SPRING COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) -- Investigators continue to look into the deaths of two people found in the woods of Hot Spring County.
Investigators from the Hot Spring County Sheriff's Department said the crux of this case hinges on the identity of the man and the woman found in the woods.
Authorities tell THV 11 both were shot in the head and both are believed to be in their 40s or 50s, and authorities think the two were trail riding in the area and were in a relationship together.
Sergeant Jeremy Bennett told THV11 that teenagers riding four-wheelers off of Spot Efird Road came across the two bodies on Friday; authorities found a gun and a vehicle at the scene.
"We're going to follow every lead until we find out exactly what happened. The evidence is going to answer a lot of that question," said Sgt. Jeremy Bennett. "A lot of that we won't know until we get stuff back from the crime lab and the medical the examiner's office."
