Default Horrible Murder in Florida

This is a very strange case:

'Perfectly Executed Murders' -- But Suspects Failed to Turn Off Surveillance Camera

Seven men who allegedly robbed a wealthy Florida couple with 17 children, then shot and killed them, were caught committing the crime on camera because the person designated to disable the security system failed to do so, police said Wednesday.

The news came as authorities revealed that a prominent local realtor police are calling a person of interest was located in Alabama.

Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said it is significant that the surveillance camera was not disarmed at the time of the robbery of Byrd and Melanie Billings, which he has described as "well planned" and "well executed."

Authorities believe it was someone's job to disable the equipment before the break-in was carried out, but that person apparently didn't show up.

"The execution of the operation was flawless except for the surveillance system," Morgan told reporters. "Why was the system left on in an otherwise perfectly executed murder?"

Seven men are in custody, charged in the Billings' murders last Thursday. The crime was captured by the elaborate surveillance camera system on their property the Billings used to keep track of their many children.

Morgan said Wednesday that an eighth person was supposed to turn it off but did not.

Investigators don't know the identity of the mysterious person assigned to turn off the camera system or why that person didn't show up. He speculated that maybe it was an attack of conscience.

"Who knows?" he said. It also wasn't known whether the shut-down was to have happened remotely or on the property.

Pamela Laverne Long, whom authorities have been seeking for questioning, was found at a marina in Orange Beach, Ala., and was heading back to Florida of her own volition with her attorney, according to Morgan.

"She is currently being cooperative," Morgan told reporters Wednesday afternoon.

She is not in police custody, he said. Detectives want to talk to her because she is friends with one of the suspects, Leonard Gonzalez Jr., to whom she rented property and whom authorities have described as a "pivotal person" in the operation.

"She's been observed transporting his wife and children at times," Morgan said. "There's obviously a friendship. We know she was associated with Leonard Patrick Gonzalez Jr. up until the day of the murders. We'd like to talk to her about that."

He said investigators believe Long has "significant and substantial information" needed to conclude the case.

Authorities don't believe Long, a well-known real estate agent in the Gulf Breeze area near where the robbery and murders occurred in Pensacola, was at the home when the Billings were killed.

She has several aliases and has been "in cognito" for two days, according to Morgan.

Authorities have been wanting to talk to Long as a witness, he said. Prior to finding her, they had had no contact with her for 48 hours, which had them "concerned about her personal safety," Morgan said.

He said detectives have identified at least one other person of interest in addition to Long whom he described as being associated with the security and surveillance system at the sprawling nine-bedroom Billings home.

He said all seven of the men who robbed and killed the couple known for adopting children with special needs are in custody, and classified the murders as "solved."

Yeah, they planned this for 6 months. It's the very apotheosis of "pre-meditated".

"Off with their 'eads!"
