List of Suspects of Slain Couple That Adoped 12 Kids Growing

July 13, 2009

Florida (ChattahBox) – Three men have so far been arrested in the murders of Byrd and Melanie Billings, a wealthy couple that adopted 12 of their 16 kids, all of which had special needs.

Wayne Coldroin, Leonard Patrick Gonzalez Jr., and Leonard Patrick Gonzalez Sr. (Shown in a booking photo from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Pensacola, Florida, and posted by the NY Daily Times), are being charged in the killings, but their involvement isn’t the whole story.

The deaths were a horrible tragedy, and were originally believed to have been a robbery gone wrong. While robbery does appear to have been one of the motives, Florida Police Department are saying that it is far from the whole story.

“We are very anxious to share this story. It’s going to be a humdinger, I’ll tell you that,” David Morgan, the county sheriff, was quoted in the NY Daily News.

He didn’t elaborate on that statement, but he did reveal that several more men are being looked at for their part in the murders, and that each had a complicated to tie to each other. Neither of the victims seem to have known any of the men.

We will keep you posted on any developments.
