Heflin police Chief A.J. Benefield said officers received a call from another resident of the home who went outside to walk his dog and found the bodies at 9:28 a.m. Benefield declined to release the caller’s name.
Benefield identified the victims as Krista Medders, 21, and Todd Robbins, 31. He said the two had apparently been shot.
“It’s my understanding she was in the process of moving out,” Benefield said of Medders.
Coroner Ben McKnight, who pronounced the two dead, said the police found a pistol at the scene. McKnight was unsure when the two died. He said investigators will have to rely on information from neighbors who might have heard or seen something to determine the time of the incident.
Benefield said police are still investigating, but they believe there is no suspect at large. He expects to have more information after the department receives autopsy results.
McKnight said he should receive the results of the autopsy in about a week, maybe two.
The bodies were taken to Dryden Funeral Home. The funeral home serves as the Cleburne County morgue, McKnight said.
