More Evidence Found In The Slaying Of Wealthy Florida Couple

July 17, 2009

Florida (ChattahBox) – The increasingly strange case of the murders of a wealthy Florida couple well known for adopting special needs kids is getting even stranger.

There have now been eight people arrested for the murders of Byrd and Melanie Billings, including Leonard P. Gonzalez Jr., Leonard P. Gonzalez Sr., Wayne T. Coldiron, Gary L. Sumner, Frederick L. Thornton Jr., Donnie R. Stallworth, and Pamela Wiggins. All but Wiggins, who is being charged as an accessory after the fact, are being held without bail. One member of the crew is underage, an unnamed 16-year-old male.

The apparent motive seems to be robbery, and the plan, despite being a huge failure that ended in the deaths of two good people, has been shown to be increasingly complex.

The newest evidence found is a large safe, which the police are refusing to comment on. Police have announced that the safe contained only jewelry, family documents and children’s prescription medication.

The full story of what happened is set to be released soon, as the police conclude their investigation.

“There are obviously a lot of loose ends to tie up, but we believe that this concludes the major part of our investigation. This was a home invasion robbery where the people stole a safe, and we recovered the safe, and I personally think it’s as simple as that in terms of the motive and what occurred,” Sheriff David Morgan was quoted by The New York Times.

All because one of the men involved forgot to disarm the alarm and surveillance system during a botched robbery. Unbelievable.
