Five people are in jail tonight as an investigation into a mysterious murder in Berrien County continues.

GBI agents aren't saying much about the investigation but we do know a Valdosta man who was pulled out of a truck after it was purposely set ablaze in Berrien County Tuesday June 21.

This was the scene last week after a body was recovered from a burned out truck on Barker Road in Berrien County. Now, Len Kawhama Davis and Tavarus James Johnson are charged with the murder. These three suspects Euradell Terry, Brandy Stone, and Sabrina Naraine also face charges ranging from arson to tampering with evidence. Carla Robinson believes the murder victim is her son and Teresa Morrison's friend.

"He's been missing," said Teresa Morrison. "The truck he was driving that's the truck they found."

GBI Agents will only tell us they believe the murder victim is a man from Valdosta. Robinson says investigators have talked to her about their investigation, but have not told her whether they think her son 31-year old Carlos Robinson is the victim. She hasn't seen him since last Monday night June 20. She tells us she's holding up the best she can.

 "The best I can, through family and friends, they help me through it," said Robinson.

Robinson grew up here on Paine Street in Valdosta. His mother tells she has a gut feeling her son was in the burning truck. Morrison says she wants to know what happened.

"Me and his brother Edmond we did grow up together," said Morrison. "He was a good kid and what happened to him he didn't deserve it."

GBI agents won't tell us how they think the person was killed but they say they have a good idea. Jade Bulecza WALB News 10 Valdosta.

Investigators are still awaiting preliminary autopsy results and idenfiication of the man.

Here's a press release with all the charges:
