Long Wiggins, 47, shot to national attention when the safe belonging to Byrd and Melanie Billings, the couple murdered on July 9th in Beulah, FL with 9 adopted children in the house, was found buried under a pile of bricks in her own backyard. At that time, we saw photos of private investigators escorting her off of her yacht in handcuffs. The yacht, Classy Lady, was harbored at The Wharf in Orange Beach, AL.
Pamela Long married Jimmy Malden, Jr. in Alabama on May 5, 2007. Malden said he has been trying to divorce her for months. Long Wiggins married Hugh Gregory Wiggins in December 2008 and the “mastermind” of the Billings’ murders, Leonard Patrick Gonzalez, Jr. and his wife Tabatha signed the marriage certificate as a witnesses.
Pamela Wiggins is out on bond of $10,000 on charges of “accessory after the fact” in the murders of the wealthy Billings who adopted 13 children, 9 of whom were in the house the night of the murders. The low bond on “accessory” charge has been questioned. Her bond is $5,ooo on charges of bigamy. She is still jailed at this time.
