Winston County Sheriff Rick Harris confirmed late Wednesday night that four bodies were discovered in a vehicle found on a logging road in the Black Pond community just south of Double Springs. A passerby noticed the vehicle and called police around 8 p.m.
When deputies arrived on the scene, they found the four bodies inside the vehicle, which reportedly has out-of-state license plates.
Officials from the Alabama Bureau of Investigations were on the scene Wednesday night, as well as a state forensics unit.
The names of the victims have not been released.
