Autistic Boy Says He Witnessed The Billings’ Murders

August 18, 2009

Florida (ChattahBox) – The slain couple, Byrd and Melissa Billings, who were known for taking in disabled children, were slain in front of one of their children, police now say.

The unnamed autistic boy was allegedly in their bedroom with two men in masks entered and woke Byrd Billings, telling him that he was ‘going to die’.

One man then counted to three, and shot the couple, killing them instantly.

The details show a new, disturbing level of brutality to the death of the generous couple, in what was originally intended as an elaborate robbery.

The age of the boy has not been released, and it is not clear if the men were aware of his presence at the time of the slayings.

All suspects involved have plead ‘not guilty’, and are awaiting trial.
