HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Two of the seven mass murder victims were laid to rest Monday.

Family and friends gathered in Harvest to remember Warren Crutcher.

Authorities have said Crutcher was a central figure in the mass murder investigation because of his connection to the other six victims.

Crutcher's friend, Jeffrey Pope, was also laid to rest Monday afternoon.

Tuesday, Chabreya Campbell and her 1-year-old son, Rashad "Rico" Ragland, will be remembered. They are the final victims to be laid to rest.

Investigators have not released a lot of information about the mass murders since last week.

Legal expert Mark McDaniel believes that's because investigators are trying to be thorough with the evidence. In his experience, one wrong move or sloppy mistake could cost them a chance to put someone in jail for the murders.

"The investigators know that they have to dot all the I's and cross all the T's because they have one bite at the apple here," said McDaniel. "If they make mistakes at this point, they have what you call double jeopardy. You can't go clean it up."
