On Wednesday, Long was charged in Cherokee County with four counts of murder and one count of assault in the shooting at Young's Asian Massage. In Atlanta, he faces four additional murder counts.

Long's parents came forward to identify him after they saw surveillance footage of him in the media. Long has allegedly confessed to the slayings and told police he has a sexual addiction, authorities said at a Wednesday press conference. He frequented two of the spas he's accused of targeting.

Long allegedly told authorities that he had planned to travel to Florida to kill more people.

Long has not yet entered a plea to any of the charges against him, and it's unclear whether he has retained an attorney authorized to speak on his behalf. Relatives have not responded to PEOPLE's requests for comment.
