UNION CITY, GA (CBS46) -

A Union City police officer on routine patrol discovered three bodies in a car parked on an interstate ramp early Sunday morning.

Two bodies were found inside the car, and a third body was discovered in the trunk. The car was located on Flat Shoals Road near Interstate 85.

Police said the victims, Quinones King, 33, Cheryl Colquitt-Thompson, 32, and Rodney Cottrell, 43, were from Montgomery, AL.

"We have multiple leads and one lead does describe that incident happened in a different location but I can't give you any information about that lead," Union City police spokesperson Christopher Murphy said.

Authorities believe the victims may have known their killer or killers.

"There's no evidence that shows it was a random act," Officer Murphy said.

Union City police have called in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to help.
