Brunswick Trailer Park Murders

From First Coast News:
BRUNSWICK, GA -- Police have identified - and arrested - the person that called 911 yesterday after finding seven murder victims in a mobile home at the New Hope Plantation mobile home park.
Glynn County Police Chief Matthew Doering said Sunday morning that police are holding Guy Heinze Jr., 22, in the county jail for possessing marijuana and other drugs. Heinze's arrest is not related to the homicide, but it is related to the case itself, he said.
Heinze was the 911 caller that alerted police to the scene; he is related to one of the victims found in the home, police said.
The charges are possession of a controlled substance (Darvocet), possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and obstruction of an officer, which is related to making false statements to police.
This was the first news I saw on TV this morning. Seven people dead in a trailer park in Georgia. Gruesome. The arrest of Heinze does not make him a suspect. It looks like murder-suicide:
Police are investigating the deaths of seven people found Saturday in a mobile home as a murder-suicide involving mostly members of one family, a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation told the Florida Times-Union.
The law enforcement source and a woman familiar with the victims and the trailer park in the New Hope Plantation, said most of the victims were family members of Rusty Toler, a hard-working, soft-spoken man who loved his children.
Toler and three of his four children are among those dead, while a fourth child is hospitalized in critical condition, said the woman who knows the family. Another gravely wounded victim, said to be a grandchild of Toler's, is also hospitalized, the woman said.
Will try to keep an eye on this as more details develop.
