McRAE, Ga.-Three days after Bud Runion posted an ad on the website Craigslist that said he was seeking to buy a 1966 Mustang convertible, he and his wife set out for a small farming community in southern Georgia to meet with a potential seller. Then they vanish. In Telfair County, where cotton and peanut fields meet dense woods three-hour drive south of Runions' suburban Atlanta home, days of searching by authorities and volunteers ended Monday with a grim discovery and arrest. Sheriff Chris Steverson said the couple's SUV had been found in a lake a few miles outside McRAE, tiny city of 5 700 about 80 miles southeast of Macon. Research discovered two bodies-man and a woman-nearby. This is not the outcome we had hopped for, sheriff told reporters at a news conference. But obviously, it's what we have to deal with. The same day authorities found bodies, investigators arrested 28-year-old Ronnie Adrian Jay Towns of McRAE on charges of giving false statements to authorities and criminal attempt to commit theft by deception. Towns had not been charged in the deaths or disappearance of 69-year-old Elrey Bud Runion and his 66-year-old wife, June Runion, of Marietta. But the sheriff said cellphone used to make last - know contact with Runions had been traced to Towns. He said the young man turned himself in Monday accompanied by family members. For now, he's only subject we are seeking, Steverson say. Arrest Stun Towns' family. He grew up on a farm beside long dirt road where his father grow soybeans, cotton and peanuts. Property isn't far from where the bodies were find. Towns lives in neighboring Wheeler County with his family-wife and young daughter that he supports doing construction work for a local homebuilder, said his uncle, Buddy Towns. He's good kid, and very smart, said uncle, who often saw his nephew's truck pass his McRAE business as Jay Towns headed to work. It just doesn't make any sense why this would even go down. It's hard for his parents. They're not understanding. On Tuesday, investigators were still waiting for bodies to be identify, and no additional charges had been filed against Towns, though he remains only suspect, said Jimmy Johnson, chief deputy at the sheriff's office. We still have questions and will probably have questions for quite while, Johnson say. And much remains unknown about what happened to Runions from the time the couple left home on Thursday until authorities found their SUV on Monday. The Sheriff do not say how the man and woman found nearby appear to have die. Bodies were being sent to the Georgia state crime lab for identification and autopsies, and the sheriff said he plans to keep some details of the case under wraps until it goes to court. The only potential motive offered by authorities has been theft. The Sheriff said investigators found no evidence that Towns own sort of classic car Runion was seeking.
