Manhunt under way for suspect in slayings of twins, elderly babysitter

(CNN) - Alabama authorities warn that a 22-year-old man wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of 9-year-old twins and their elderly babysitter should be considered armed and dangerous.

The warning Thursday by the Alabama Bureau of Investigation came as warrants were issued for the arrest of Deandra Marquis Lee.

"Today, murder warrants were obtained for Lee," the bureau said in a written statement.

The announcement followed news earlier this week that the bodies of the twins, Jordan and Taylor DeJerinett, and 73-year-old Jack Mac Girdner were found on a dirt road near Hayneville, southwest of the capital city of Montgomery, state investigators said.

    Good Morning SayWhat and Banasy...

    I agree. Such a senseless crime. But with a massive manhunt and no picture of the suspect? Tips could be rolling in...
