ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Nearly a year after an Orange County couple was murdered in their home, newly released reports are detailing how it happened.
Autopsies show Nancy Petrozzino, and her husband, Michael Patrozzino, were shot multiple times last November.
Investigators concluded their son, Sean Petrozzino, 30, was the shooter, who then killed himself after being pulled over in Tennessee.
A new report explains how Petrozzino, a quadruple amputee who lost his hands and legs from a rare form of meningitis, was able to commit the crime.
He was seen using his parents’ ATM card after the killings and quickly became a suspect after physical evidence was connected to the crime.
In a 12-page report, investigators found despite his physical capabilities, Petrozzino was an avid gun user and altered his weapons to accommodate his disabilities.
A family friend told investigators Petrozzino owned an M-16 assault rifle and tripod which he’s seen him fire, among several other weapons, at a gun range.
The report also found Petrozzino may not have left right after the murders because no shell casings were found at the scene.
Another finding from the report describes how Petrozzino appeared distraught over a break-up with his wife of four years.

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — An American Airlines plane flying from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Palm Beach International Airport developed a hydraulic leak Saturday afternoon.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews responded to the airport after the plane landed safely at the gate at about 1:07 p.m, according to Capt. Albert Borroto.
The plane -- which was scheduled to land at PBI -- did not need to make an emergency landing, and there are no reports of injuries, Leonard Serratore of PBI said.
It is unclear if the plane experienced the leak before or after the plane took off from Charlotte.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Prodded by actor Sylvester Stallone, President Donald Trump said he’s considering a posthumous pardon for boxing's first black heavyweight champion, more than 100 years after he was convicted by an all-white jury of accompanying a white woman across state lines.
Jack Johnson, who died in 1946, was convicted in 1913 for violating the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for "immoral" purposes.
"His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial," Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon from Mar-a-Lago. "Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!"

Johnson's family has tried to get a posthumous pardon for years. The tweet comes a week after Trump pardoned I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a top aide to former Vice President Dick Cheney.
