We have new developments in the Florida murders of Byrd and Melanie Billings, who adopted 13 children with special needs. A source with knowledge to the investigation tells CNN the state attorney's office believes it was a contracted hit, with robbery as the prime motive. Eight suspects are in custody in the case, including a 16 year old boy. We'll have the latest tonight on 360°.

In the Michael Jackson death investigation, Randi Kaye is digging deeper on the search warrants. She'll share what she's uncovered. There's a doctor's name that caught her eye. It's not Dr. Conrad Murray, who was with Jackson when he died. It's another doctor.

    Anderson was talking about the pythons in Florida, this python got into a little girl's crib a couple of weeks ago and it was wrapped around her neck and it killed her. This happened in Central Florida The girl's mother and boy friend had it as a pet.

    It is truly a shame that the pythons, which are innocent in all of this, must be killed. Isn't there any way to relocate them? Again, human activity causes animal suffering and danger to the ecosystem.

    I am very sad at the news of Michaels drug addiction,but again another
    celeberty treated as an object not a humanbeing.Meaning Dr's take an
    oath to help not hurt.Anna ,even though kept hush Heath and now Michael.These people are or were someone's child,mother, father brother,sister etc... I hope this sends a message to those who practice for only wealth not health that they will be held accountable.Because an addict never knows what's right for he or she only what numbs the pain they are feeling at that moment,weather physically,emotionally or just for pleasure.God bless Michael's family and his children and again maybe Michaels star will make a bad situation be paid attention to and not ignored.
