Two South Carolina teenagers found dead Thanksgiving morning were shot in the backs of their heads execution-style, Georgia investigators said Monday.
Angela Brooks, 19, of Warrenville and Ashley Cushman, 17, of Beech Island, were kneeling or lying side-by-side on the ground when they were shot, Richmond County Sheriff's Capt. Scott Peebles said at a news conference.
Police are looking for Travis Lorenzo Berrian, 26, who was described as a person of interest earlier in the investigation but is now considered a suspect. Investigators also are looking for a second man who can be seen on surveillance video getting out of Cushman's 1999 Cadillac Escalade at a convenience store early Thursday morning.
The car was found abandoned before the bodies were found in a wooded area near downtown Augusta, police said.
Peebles says Cushman and Berrian had an off-and-on relationship and the teens went to visit him Wednesday night.
