The GBI has identified the two people found dead Friday at a home in Oglethorpe.
According to GBI Special Agent Terry Howard, the female victim was 77-year-old Ruthe Bracknell and the male victim was identified as her son, 53-year-old Mark Abbott.
The two lived at the home on Erie Street where they were found dead.
Neighbor, Dot Woodard has lived on Erie Street since 1997. She wasn't home Friday night, but says she was shocked when she learned her neighbors were dead.
"I was shocked because nothing happens like this in Macon County. I mean, we're just kind of a quiet little town," says Woodard.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday afternoon and Howard says they’ll have a better idea of what happened once it’s been completed.
"I'm not really scared. But it's kind of like you want to know who did it, or what happened, so you'll feel more prepared around your house... because it's almost like you don't feel safe anywhere, anymore," says Woodard.
At this time, it is being referred to as a ‘death investigation.’
Agent Howard says it could take days, or weeks, for the autopsy results to come in.
