The investigation into the gruesome weekend murders of eight people at a mobile home park in Southeast Georgia's Glynn County now has expanded into Florida.

A spokeswoman characterized the expansion into Florida as a natural progession of an investigation that began within a two mile radius and then moved to a 15 mile radius of the mobile home park just north of Brunswick. Police say, Georgia and Florida Bureaus of Investigation are now working together, but did not say where.

A news conference Monday did not produce any victims names, beyond the one revealed Sunday night, that of Michael Toler. Police say, they're waiting for autopsy identifications. Police also wouldn't comment on the 9-1-1 tape, made public today. The tape suggests that several of the eight victims might have been beaten to death.

Police defended questions related to the lack of information being provided. Police say, they too, have little to go on and are asking the public for help and telling residents to stay vigilent.
