BRUNSWICK, Ga. - The only survivor among four siblings attacked in a Glynn County mobile home massacre died today, increasing the carnage to eight dead, police said tonight.

Wonder how they died? Guns, Poison??
There are RUMORS that the murders are related to this murder for revenge...
I think they were shot according to another message board.
I had heard that the surviving child was 6 or 7, but I don’t know how accurate my information is. Had not heard about the 2nd arrest, but according to the reports so far, the Heinze man arrested is the son of one of the victims, and apparently the victims were Rusty Toler, his 4 children, his brother and sister, and a daughter’s boyfriend - it’s not clear who the 8th victim would be.
The pizza hut murder was directly across the street from the entrance to FLETC, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
Supposedly they arrested someone in that case and in the other robbery case, but I haven’t heard any names.
Like I said, I’m not claiming to know ANYTHING, just repeating what is said somewhere else. You probably have as much correct information as anyone.
Law enforcement said that the bodies were so mangled they couldn’t tell what the cause of death was. Some neighbors said they didn’t hear anything, but at least one said someone kicked in the door and shot all of them.
As close together as the mobile homes are, and since the trailer where it happened apparently didn’t have air conditioning (picture of a box fan in an unscreened window) it does seem that someone would have heard gunshots. Of course, it looks to me like killing that many people would raise a ruckus, unless you could do it very quietly while they all slept?
Oh, I understand that...just adding what I’ve heard, which may or may not be accurate.
In fact, what I heard may be TOTALLY off, because I’d heard that both of those in the hospital were children under 12...and obviously the one who died was older.
Local TV news has police chief saying they have been called to the trailer in question before yesterday’s murders, but he won’t say why.
Definitely a lot of people...must have been miserable, too, because they apparently didn’t have any air conditioning.
Sounds as if your message board source is correct about the age of the surviving child.
Have you heard how they were killed yet?
I heard on Fox News, I believe, that they were maybe BEATEN instead of shot?!
I heard that the muzzle was right up against the head “point blank” for all of them. This made them look as if they had been beaten per the 911 call.
BTW, if you are really into this case, I don’t think there is a better place for crime news than the following:
What’s odd is that they aren’t even releasing the manner of death yet. Usually in shootings that’s the first thing released.
In the 911 call, Guy Heinze says they look like they’ve been beaten to death. The autopsy results should be completed, but the police chief isn’t releasing them yet.
I think it’s kind of interesting that he is in trouble for removing a shotgun from the trailer - I wonder if he knows who did it and wanted the gun either for protection or revenge, or if it’s the gun BunnySlippers heard was used point blank?
I still have trouble understanding how you could beat 9 people to death (or shoot them, for that matter) without someone in that trailer park hearing something - a scream, a shot, or something! - or without someone making a phone call or jumping out the window or something.
Bunny, thanks! That IS a good site!
