WINDER, Ga. -

A pair of twin brothers is being questioned by police after a body was found buried and encased in concrete at a home in Winder.  Police Chief Dennis Dorsey told FOX 5 they made the gruesome discovery after serving a search warrant on Monday morning.

The property where the body was found is located in the 200 block of Sixth Avenue. Police say they were called there after getting information about a missing person from police in Pensacola, Florida who was last seen with William and Christopher Cormier.

Investigators say the body was found buried in the ground and encased in concrete.

Police say the body has not been identified yet, and the cause of death will be released pending an autopsy at the GBI Crime Lab.

According to police, the 31-year-old twins are being charged with concealing a death.

Chief Dorsey tells FOX 5 that the men told their father they were moving back to the area from Florida with a friend, and they asked him if they could bury their friend's dog in the backyard of his house— which is the same house where the body was found.

The twins' father told FOX 5's Julia Reynolds that the man found buried had been friends with his sons for a long time. He said that he had been very sick. The father said that he hoped that the man had died and the sons had panicked.

Police are conducting an autopsy on Tuesday to determine the cause of death. Charges could be pending against the men depending on the results of that autopsy.

The search warrant was prompted after a missing person's case was filed with the Pensacola Police Department. The body was taken to the crime lab to be identified.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
