The Union County Sheriff's Office is investigating the discovery of two bodies at a home near Jonesville.

Union County Sheriff David Taylor says that the body of a man and woman were found inside a home off of Furman Fendley Highway at 8:42 p.m. Monday night. According to Taylor, a neighbor had walked by the home a couple of times during the day and noticed the front door of the home was open. Out of concern, the neighbor called 911 for a welfare check and deputies responded.

Deputies tried to access to the bodies, but were unable to due to a large number of overprotective dogs. Animal Control officers were dispatched to the scene to help assist deputies with removing the dogs.

Taylor said it is too early in the process to determine how the people died. The deaths are being classified as suspicious and the State Law Enforcement Division has been called to assist with the investigation.
