My name is Jimmie Lee Staley. When a high profile murder happened in my hometown of Pensacola, I was hooked. Even though I’m a crime junkie, this case hit close to home. The man arrested for being the ringleader of the assailants that murdered Byrd & Melanie Billings was a man I knew. Leonard “Patrick” Gonzalez Jr. married a friend’s sister. Patrick is a character that many people knew. He was many things to many people but “shooting” this couple seemed. Off. Patrick is a narcissist and he was raised in martial arts, practically from birth. Nothing about this case added up. It was all off. I started researching it full time in 2012. I could not let this go and I needed to do SOMETHING. Having a big mouth pays off every once in a while. I used that as my way to bring light to dark in this case. There is always something that can be done. I am proof of that. One person can make a difference.
