BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- A story of two brothers, one is accused of killing eight people, including his own father. The other is trying to confront the case against the very person he's looked up to his whole life. The arrest warrants were released from police today, but they don't go into detail about the so-called very brutal beatings.
Tyler Heinze couldn't believe what he was reading. We showed him the arrest warrant from police. He couldn't believe the words murder, blunt instrument and his brothers name were all in the same sentence, next to the names of nine of his friends and family members.
"How can he beat someone to death, especially my dad. My brother's innocent. He's gonna be proven innocent," said Tyler Heinze.
Tyler saw his brother Guy Heinze Jr. this past Sunday in jail. Heinze Jr. was arrested Friday for the brutal murders of his family inside a mobile home.
"He thinks everyone has given up on him," said Tyler Heinze.
Tyler says they haven't, but sitting in the jail Sunday facing his brother wasn't easy. "To just walk there and pick up a phone and look at the brother you sat next to your whole life...It makes it surreal," he said.
At just 16-years-old, this teen is dealing with a lot. He hopes he doesn't lose his brother, the man he's always looked up to.
"He's only 22. He doesn't deserve this. His family was murdered. He's lost enough," said Tyler.
But police don't agree. They say the evidence only points to him. They say the investigation is still ongoing, but believe Heinze Jr. acted alone.
