Parents Of 16 Children Killed In Florida

Authorities in Florida are seeking three men in connection with the shooting deaths of the parents of 16 children.

They say Byrd and Melanie Billings died last night during a home invasion. They were the parents of 16 children -- 12 of them adopted.

A sheriff's office spokesman says the children living in the home were found safe after the attack. He says they range in age from infants to 11 years old.

The couple were known for their generosity and had taken in children with disabilities and from troubled backgrounds.

Investigators say they want to talk to three men spotted in a red full size van. They were seen last night leaving the home, which is just west of Pensacola.
