Bodies found in Georgia storage locker

(WXIA/NBC News) The bodies of two men missing since December have been found inside a Georgia storage unit.

The bodies of Joshua Jackson and Derrick Ruff were found Sunday inside a unit at Extra Space Storage in Gwinnett County, according to Athens-Clarke County investigators.

During a press conference Tuesday, Corporal Michele Pihera with the Gwinnett County Police Department said evidence indicated the men were murdered inside the storage unit and they believe their deaths were tied to gang activity.

“We believe this is associated with the Gangster Disciples…and the motive was part gang activity,” said Captain Jerry Saulters with Athens-Clarke County Police. “There is an active investigation going on with active parties that could be responsible.”

Saulters said it is not clear at this time if the victims were involved in gang activity themselves.
