Brunswick Murder Evidence Turned Over to GBI

Updated: 7 years ago.
Guy Heinze Jr was held for tampering with evidence and lying to police. He will likely not be allowed to attend the joint funeral being held for his family members who he found slain.

Officials with the Glynn County Police department say they delivered a large amount of evidence to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Thursday. Police have yet to release a motive for the 8 homicides but they say drug or gang activities haven't been ruled out.

Meanwhile Guy Heinze Jr, the man who found the victims and made the 911 call, remains in jail. He was arrested for lying to police and tampering with evidence. Heinz, who was related to 7 of the victims, must remain in jail until a judge-ordered electronic monitoring device comes in.

As of yet police have no suspects. A reward of $50,000 is being offered to anyone providing information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for the slayings.
