    Suspects: Gonalez the Only Shooter

    Leonard Gonzalez Jr. pulled the trigger of the 9 mm pistol that killed Byrd and Melanie Billings, search warrant affidavits claim.

    Wayne Coldiron and Frederick Thornton Jr., both charged with open counts of murder and a count of home invasion, told investigators that they saw Gonzalez Jr. kill the couple, according to search warrants filed in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

    One of the Billingses was shot to death after their hands were bound by plastic zip ties, but the court documents didn't specify which.

    Here's an explanation on why Billings had the kids names copyrighted.

    From NorthEscambia.com

    The Bizarre Billings Multi-Million Dollar Copyright Story

    July 23, 2009

    Byrd Billings had a plan — copyright the names of his children and charge anyone, including the government, millions each time they used one of the names.


    Wednesday, Billings family attorney Crystal Spencer said she did not believe that Billings’ copyright claims were an attempt to get money, but rather an attempt to protect the privacy of his children.

    “I think that he was given some incorrect advice,” Spencer said of Billings’ reasons for filing the court papers.

    “I would not call them bizarre,” she said of his filings. “I would call them different…It was to protect the privacy of the children.”

    Murder suspect loses military pay

    BEULAH, Fla. - Sergeant Donnie Stallworth is still a member of the Untied States Air Force. However, he is not receiving a paycheck as he sits behind bars at the Escambia County, Alabama jail.

    "When members are taken into confinement, they are no longer entitled to pay and allowances," said Staff Sergeant Mareshah Haynes.

    Stallworth graduated from T.R. Miller High School in 1999. He's been active duty since 2000.

    Military representatives say an airmen with his rank and experience makes $2,670 a month.

    But when Stallworth was arrested more than two weeks ago in connection with the Billings murder, those payments stopped. If Stallworth is convicted, his time in the Air force will officially come to an end.

    July 25: Dispite what the Sheriff's Office Spokesperson is telling us that the investigation is over and no more arrests are expected, Sheriff Morgan is stilll interviewing POI's and says "he still believes there is a suspect that was tasked with disabling the security system at the Billings’ home in Beulah, and he expects more arrests to come in the case."

    NorthEscambia.com sat down with Sheriff David Morgan Friday afternoon at his office for an exclusive interview to learn more about what the days since the Billings murders have been like for him personally.
