Thursday, forensic investigators were searching the car for clues and finger prints. The Mustang was found on a dead-end dirt county road Wednesday Morning around 10am.

Authorities say Olson and McDaniel's bodies were found in the back seat.

"The male was shot with a shot gun and it also looks like a hand gun," said Sheriff James Estes, with Cass County. "The female was shot multiple times with a hand gun or some type of weapon."
