Investigators say the circumstances leading to the deaths are under investigation and did not disclose whether foul play is suspected.
A neighbor told First Coast News an elderly couple and their teenaged grandson lived in a home where police are focusing the investigation.
"They didn't bother nobody," neighbor Sheila Anderson says. "They were very friendly, nice people."
The tight-knit community of long-time neighbors says they are in shock and afraid as their community has begun to deteriorate significantly in recent years due to crime.
"I don't understand it," says Anderson.
Captain Angela Smith with the Brunswick Police Department says members of the deceased church called police when the family did not attend Sunday service.
Neighbors say they can't think of any reasons why anyone would want to harm the family.
Because of the nature of the investigation, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been brought in to assist with the case.
Zion Baptist Church in Brunswick has planned a prayer service for the Holliman family on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
