Florida Couple Found Dead

Byrd and Melanie Billings, a Florida couple that parented 16 children (12 were adopted), were found dead in their Beulah home on Thursday night. Police responded to calls around 8 p.m. regarding shots heard at the house, but it was an employee of the couple who found their bodies. Eight children were found in the home—all alive—and ranging in age from an infant to about 11-years old. The Billings were apparent victims of a home invasion. Police are looking for three males in a red van.
