For the last 7 years, the couple spent their Summers in Baldwin, in Lake County.

Police say the two boys ran away from a nearby detention center.

A neighbor says he spotted the teens breaking in to a house, near where the Brooks were staying.

He held them at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

The deputies then found the bodies of the Brooks, while checking the homes in the neighborhood.
