Three people are dead in separate suspicious incidents that were discovered early Tuesday evening in Escambia County. Now, law enforcement is asking for the public’s help in locating a vehicle believed to be involved in one of those deaths.

Escambia County Chief Deputy Mike Lambert said local, county and state law enforcement are currently investigating the discoveries – one in the area of Ewing Pond Road in Atmore and another in Flomaton.

Lambert confirmed a body was located in the area near the Poarch exit. As with all manners of suspicious death, Lambert said investigators are treating the incident as a homicide.

“We have identified a person of interest in the incident and are asking people to be on the lookout for a 1992 silver Ford F-150, with the Escambia County tag No. 30BK659,” Lambert said. “It may have tool box and could have a maroon spot down the sides of vehicle. Unknown direction of travel.

Anyone coming into contact with vehicle, contact local law enforce or the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at 251-809-2154.”

In a simultaneous, unrelated incident, deputies assisted Flomaton police after reports of two deaths – one on Evelyn Street in the Holt Subdivision and another two miles away on College Street – were called into 911.

FPD Chief Bryan Davis said the case has been turned over the state bureau of investigation Tuesday night.

The Brewton Standard will update this story as more information becomes available.
