HARDEEVILLE, SC (WTOC) -

Police in Hardeeville say the May 11 double murder has been a hard case to work.

Police collected dozens of pieces of evidence at the scene and as the investigation progressed, they sent additional evidence to South Carolina's Law Enforcement Division's forensics team in Columbia. That evidence is currently being tested and may lead police to the killer.

Back in May, police got a call to respond to what they thought was a car accident on Purrysburg Rd. in Hardeeville. A passerby called police to report a car crashed into a tree and the two people inside were dead. But when police got there, they realized they had a double murder on their hands. Dezmond "Buster" Brown, 25, and his girlfriend Octavia Scott, 26, were both been shot in the head.

Police chief Richard Nagy says the community was very cooperative in this case, which is helpful. 
 
Additional information about the investigation, including a motive and the name of the suspect, has not yet been released.
