ABILENE, TX -- After the Taylor County Sheriff's Office confirmed multiple people have been arrested in connection to the murder of Megan Kirkland, court documents are providing more insight into what happened on that summer night.
According to investigators, witnesses saw Johnson get knocked down to the ground during an altercation at the party. When he got off the ground he began firing shots into the crowd.
Investigators then located pictures on social media of Johnson holding a gun in the days close to the murder.
According to court documents, text messages between Johnson, Yahayra Gutierrez, and Kimberly Renee Limas show the trio discussed the fact that the media was naming the wrong suspect and that "the three needed to get their story straight when interviewed by law enforcement."
Johnson's mother, Stephanie Avalos, was also involved in the plot to obscure the truth from law enforcement. According to law enforcement, the four of them planned how to "get rid of the clothing George was wearing during the shooting."
A confidential informant told police Avalos had told him personally that "her son had confided in her that he had killed Ms. Kirkland."
Ramon Aguirres Jr., who has also been charged tampering with evidence, confirmed to investigators told he built the fire in which Avalos burned the clothes -- specifically a shirt.
The four suspects are currently housed at the Taylor County Jail. Johnson has been charged with murder and his bond has been set at $250,000.
Avalos, Limas, and Aguirres have been charged with tampering with evidence and held on a $100,000 bond each.
Yahayra Gutierrez remains at large.
