GILBERT, AZ (CBS5) -

The current regional director for the National Socialist Movement said the FBI has been to his home in Maricopa twice since Wednesday's mass shooting in Gilbert.

Harry Hughes said agents were there to look inside a shed, where he said he stores things for the man who police identify as the gunman, J.T. Ready 

Hughes said the items inside are harmless. He said the FBI agent also asked basic questions about Ready, like who did Ready talk to in the days preceding the shooting and what did they talk about?

Police say Ready, a purported neo-Nazi, is accused of killing five people, including himself, at his Gilbert home.

The victims are identified as Ready's girlfriend, Lisa Mederos, 47; Lisa's daughter, Amber Mederos, 23; Amber's boyfriend, Jim "Jambob" Hiott, 24; and Amber's daughter, Lilly, 16 months old.

Once inside home, investigators said they found something out of the ordinary. Ready had several 640 millimeter projectile grenades.

Car wash raises money for funeral expenses

On Saturday, friends of the victims' families raised money to help pay for funeral expenses.

"I lost my daughter. She was my first born," said the youngest victim's father, Jess Boggs. "I shouldn't have to burry my daughter," Boggs said about Lily Mederos.

He said will never get to see his little girl grow up.

"My daughter should burry me, when I'm old," he said. "I just wonder why, why is this happening, why did he do it?"

Dozens of family friends washed cars to raise money for funeral expenses that are expected to be in the thousands of dollars. Emotions were still running high as family members came to show their support. 

"It makes me feel good knowing that there are people out there that cared about Amber, Jim, Lily and Lisa," Boggs said.
