GLYNN COUNTY, GA -- Investigators are piecing together exactly what happened inside a mobile home at the New Hope Plantation in Glynn County Saturday morning.

That's where seven people were found dead and another two injured. One of those died yesterday.

Police are releasing details about the crime very slowly, but we do now know the names and ages of all eight victims.

They are:
Russell D. Toler, Sr., 44
Russell D. Toler, Jr., 20
Chrissy Toler, 22
Michelle Toler, 15
Michael Toler, 19
Brenda Gail Falagan, 49
Guy Heinze, Sr., 45
Joseph L. West, 30

Sources say that a young boy named Byron is the only survivor.

On Monday, police released the arrest report for Guy Heinze, Jr. He's the relative of the victims who told 911 operators what he found. 

Now, authorities say he is charged with lying to police and tampering with evidence, including hiding a shotgun.

He frantically told a 911 dispatcher he found his family dead in a Glynn County mobile home. It wasn't long after the call was made that the 22-year-old was arrested.

His charges range from drug possession to obstruction of law enforcement and tampering with evidence at the scene.

According to the arrest warrants, obtained by First Coast News, Heinze obstructed law enforcement by providing false statements to two Glynn County investigators.

The warrant says Heinze gave, "false and misleading information about his whereabouts and involvement in the circumstances leading up to him calling 911 to report the deaths of his family members."

Another arrest warrant claims Heinze tampered with evidence from the mobile home.

This arrest warrant says Heinze took a shotgun from the home and then hid it from investigators in his car. The warrant says Heinze told police he believed the shotgun was stolen.
