Surveillance video captured the entire crime and murder of Byrd and Melanie Billings.
Surveillance video captured the grisly moments before the Florida couple Byrd and Melanie Billings were murdered in their Beulah home on July 9, 2009 as their children slept. A judge has ruled that the video cannot be released as it is part of an ongoing investigation. According to Sheriff David Morgan, “it was apparent again from the tape, when you viewed the tape that they meant business from the moment they entered that home”.
Dark, grainy surveillance camera images from inside the home of a slain Florida couple show the moments before their deaths as gunmen dressed in black storm their house. The images, taken at the home of Byrd and Melanie Billings, were shown Thursday to representatives from several news organizations. The Beulah, Florida, couple, known for adopting special-needs children, were shot to death in their home July 9.
Eight people have been arrested with regards to the murder including 56 year old Leonard Gonzalez Sr, Leonard Gonzalez Jr, Wayne Thomas Coldron, Gary Lamont Sumner, Fredrick Lee Thornton, Donald Ray Stallworth, an unidentified 16 year old juvenile, and Pamela Long.
Authorities are investigating the surveillance video for further clues. Investigators are working with the FBI to enhance the images an identify the suspects more clearly.
