    (CNN) -- Eight children were found in the Florida home of their slain parents, who apparently were the victims of a home invasion, police confirmed to CNN Friday.

    The couple was found shot Thursday night in their Beulah home, said Escambia County Police spokesman Sgt. Ted Roy. One of the parents was shot in the head, he said. Beulah is about 17 miles northwest of Pensacola.

    The victims were identified as Byrd and Melanie Billings by Jeff Martin, director of the District Medical Examiner's Office. Autopsies have not been completed, he said.

    The Billings have 16 children; 12 of them adopted, some of whom have special needs, the Pensacola News Journal reported.

    Nancy Markham, a relative of the family, told CNN affiliate WEAR-TV that her son was inside the Billings' home when the shootings occurred.

    "He said that Bud and Melanie had, both of them had been murdered," Markham said.



    Emergency personnel and police went to the home Thursday night after receiving a call just before 8 p.m. about shots being fired, Roy said. An employee of the couple found their bodies, he said.

    When police arrived they discovered the children also in the house, he said. The children, who ranged in age from infant to about 11 years old, were unharmed, he said.

    Authorities are looking for three males in a red van in connection with the slayings, Roy said.

    Why does this crap always happen in Florida?

    Can't we just break Florida off and give them one big push into the Atlantic?

    I'm actually in Florida right now, so we might need to wait until I get back into the real United States.

    We should take an overall consensus and vote Florida off the island!

    Oh, and last week, a 2 year old was killing by a pet Python. Not pretty.

    Florida's the only thing keeping Georgia attached to the mainland! Don't you know anything? (old, old, old, Florida joke). Let's boot Texas instead.

    As to the op, yeah, very very sick. I don't understand this at all. What will happen to all of the babies now.

    Not the WHOLE world. Most people are extremely disgusted that this happened.

    The people who did it are sick. The rest of us are fairly good.

    Also, you can't really blame the world itself for this. You might be able to say that if a volcanic eruption or a hurricane occurred, but this was purely a sick person's will being imposed on a part of the world.

    Couples get killed all the time, why is this so much worse then all the other times?

    Don't really see why the media has to bring their kids into it. Are they trying to guilt trip the murderer?

    Wow, I was thinking the same thing, fluff. It's sad for sure, but it's always sad. I hate sensationalism. I also hate (love) sharing a brain with you, fluff!
