Renee Collins, 26, and Pieterson Delhomme, 25, were found dead July 17 in the Eagle Reserve Apartments on Cinderlane Parkway.

The boy, who was not injured, is now living with family members.

Orlando homicide detectives said the crime scene was one of the most violent they have ever seen.  Police described the killer as depraved.

Police said there are no leads in the case and asked the public to contact authorities if they have any information about the slayings.

Police said Delhomme and Collins moved to Orlando from West Palm Beach a short time ago.

Delhomme worked as a security guard, and Collins was a service manager at a bank.

Ray Collins tells Local 6 he buried his daughter this past weekend in West Palm Beach.

He says he's confident police will find his daughter's killer, but he's frustrated by the lack of people coming forward to help.

"The people that know something you really need to say something to the police to the hotlines, whatever it takes," says Collins.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by family and friends to help with the funeral and support for the child.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS. Callers may remain anonymous.
