BRUNSWICK, GA (WTOC) - Police have released the 911 call of a family member of the eight people killed at the New Hope Plantation Mobile Home Park in Brunswick.

Glynn County police released the 911 recording Monday morning. On the call, 22-year-old Guy Heinze Jr. says he found the victims when he came home Saturday morning, "My whole family is dead!" He says it looks like they were beaten to death.

Seven people were found dead inside the mobile home Saturday and 19-year-old Michael Toler died Sunday at Memorial University Medical Center. Another victim is still in critical condition.

In the call, Heinze said his father, uncle and cousins were among the dead. He also pleads with a 911 operator to send help for one of two survivor whose face is "smashed in" but is still breathing.

Police still haven't released how the victims were killed or a motive in the case.

"I am absolutely certain, 100 percent, what happened," said Glynn County police chief Matt Doering. "I am absolutely certain how it happened. The question is who is responsible. Part of that is the motive. What would motivate someone to do this."

Police arrested Heinze on charges of possession of painkillers, marijuana, tampering with evidence and making false statements to police but are not calling him a suspect in the murders.

Autopsies of the victims should be completed in the next few days. The names of the seven found dead in the mobile home have not been released.

There is a $25,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. If you know anything about the murders, call the silent witness line at 912.264.1333.
