HUDSON, Florida -- A fatal fire investigation, at first thought to be accidental, has now been labeled a double homicide. Jessica Keith and Amber Lynn Jordan, both 24 years old, were found dead in the fire early Monday morning.

Investigators say they have now uncovered clues that indicate the fire was no accident.

"We still have deputy sheriff's and forensics investigators sifting through debris, and the attempt to destroy all evidence was not effective," said Pasco Sheriff's Criminal Investigations Commander, Capt. Mel Eakley.

Detectives say the two victims both had criminal records and that their murders were possibly linked to drug activity at the home.

"We had tips there was a lot of drug activity going on, a lot of cars coming in or out," said Sheriff Chris Nocco. "No one ever deserves to die in that way. It doesn't matter what you've done in your past."

The sheriff's office has not yet released the names of any potential suspects, but investigators say they are confident arrests will be made.

"If there's a message to the suspects -- we're coming for you," said Sheriff Nocco. "We have a very good idea who you are, we know where you've been. Hopefully, we'll be two steps ahead of you and we'll be waiting for you."

Detectives are looking for anyone who spotted a dark-colored car leaving the area the morning of the crime. They are urging anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $3000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
