Lat monday night 3 of my friends were shot and killed. They were murdered by someone they knew and police are looking for them. They were all homeless.I knew them.I knew Rick the most.We have been helping him for the past 5 years.I am sad and so angry.Cops recieved 2 911 calls that night about shots fired.They now know one was from one of the victims.What makes me angry is that supposedly 16 cops were out that night and searched that area for 2 hours.Its not  ahuge area.They lived in an old abandoned horse barn.They saw the barn but didnt go look. Now the sheriff dept is doing an internel investigation.I have been busy getting together a vigil. With the help of a pastor at a local church its going to be tuesday night. I recieved donations of candles.The church is also going to have refreshments for after. I have been  with Todds family.Very nice people. Debbi's son has been in contact. Rick had a dd somewhere up north but noone knows where.I also have started a gofund me account to raise money  to help with their funeral expenses,Its up to $1,400.I will miss them so much. Rick was always telling us he loved us and would hug us. They were the nicest people.I dont know how someone culd do this to them let alone someone who was supposed to be their friend.

In this week's incident, deputies admit they didn't check the barn after one of the three victims called 911 around 9:40 to report a shooting.

Fifteen minutes later, someone else called 911 saying they also heard gunfire near the pond.

Sheriff Jerry L. Demings has ordered an internal review. He said he's not satisfied with the way his staff responded Monday night.

Two sought for questioning in Orange County triple murder

Posted: Mar 18, 2014 12:11 PM EST Updated: Mar 19, 2014 8:27 AM EST
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said the bodies of three shooting victims were discovered in a wooded area near Curry Ford Road and Excalibur Court on Tuesday afternoon.

The victims, two men and one woman, are described as transients.  They have been identified as Richard Button, 65, Todd Lemme, 57, and Deborah Watson, 54. 

"They lived in a type of barn, like horse stalls, and they each had a stall," said Sheriff's Office spokesperson Jane Watrel.

No arrests have been made, and authorities are searching for two men for questioning in this investigation, 60-year-old David Emmons and 47-year-old Leonard Lewis.

"I don't like the outcome.  I don't understand," said Bill Simmons, who lives just a few yards away from the wooded area where the bodies were discovered.  "If there's a murderer running loose, I hope they get to the bottom of it, that's for sure."

Authorities were first alerted to suspicious activity and shots fired on Monday night. 

"Units responded, searched the immediate area, tried to find the location of the shots fired and nothing was found at that time," said Captain Angelo Nieves with the Sheriff's Office.  

The bodies were found on Tuesday morning by a friend of the victims.  Capt. Nieves said they are conducting a review to determine why deputies did not find the bodies until the following morning.

"That's all part of the investigative process, to see how long they were out here, how long they looked, what areas they were looking at," he added.

Members of an Emergency Response Team spent most of Tuesday morning and afternoon searching the woods, looking for clues.

If you have any information about this case, or know of the whereabouts of the two men being sought for questioning, call 407-254-7000 or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
