DALTON, Ga. (AP) - Sheriff's officials in northwest Georgia are investigating after two bodies were found at a home.

Whitfield County Sheriff Scott Chitwood tells The Associated Press that neighbors reported the bodies, and officers found a man and a woman dead at a home in a subdivision shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday.

He said one body was found inside the home, and the other was in a small pool house at the residence.

Chitwood says it's too early to tell how they were killed, but said that investigators "are leaning to a double homicide."

The sheriff said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called to assist, and search warrants are being obtained as part of the investigation.

Few other details were immediately available.

Whitfield County is about 80 miles northwest of Atlanta.
