HINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) -

Police in southeast Georgia are investigating after two soldiers were found dead in an apartment outside Fort Stewart.

Hinesville police Capt. James C. Reid said Tuesday that an anonymous tip made to a police department in another city led officers to the bodies late Sunday.

Reid called the deaths suspicious, saying there were injuries to the bodies, but declined to give further details about the deaths. He said autopsies were scheduled to be performed Tuesday.

Reid said the soldiers were identified as 23-year-old Spc. Marquez S. Brown and 21-year-old Pvt. Malika D. Jackson.

Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson confirmed the men were active-duty soldiers stationed at Fort Stewart, the largest Army post east of the Mississippi River.

He said the Army is cooperating with local authorities.
