On October 22nd, 2013 an intruder entered the home that Newlyweds Chris (26) and Brittney Langford (24) shared. The intruder shot Chris, Brittney, and Brittany's dad Mike Tellone, whom was staying with them. Brittney and Mike were killed and Chris was wounded.

Chris and Brittney were married on June 28th, 2013. Chris truly met his soul-mate in Brittney and also had an amazing bond with Mike, Brittney's dad.They had just spent most of their savings to move into a different home with a shop so Chris could try and start a business repairing import cars, a passion Chris and Brittney shared.

Unfortunately this is the second tragedy Chris has had to overcome. Jan 6th, 2008 he and his girlfriend at the time,were working on his car and suffered carbon monoxide poisoning. As a result he had to have his leg amputated and she passed away. He has been using a prosthetic leg ever since that time. It took him many years to overcome these losses. Chris and his wife Brittney were off to a great start to a new life when these murders took her from him.


We are devastated that he is having to start his life over once again.

Since the murders of his wife and father in law, Chris has incurred medical bills as a result of his gunshot wound. In addition, his prosthetic leg has stopped functioning properly and he is in need of a new one. Between the loss of Brittney's income, no life insurance, medical bills, celebration of life expenses, his own inability to work while healing from his injuries, and moving expenses to move from the home the murders took place in, Chris is unable to pay for the medical co-pays associated with the replacement of his prosthetic leg.

Please find it in your heart to help my brother to be able to walk without extreme pain. He has endured so much in his young life and anyone who knows him would agree he is a worthy recipient of anything you have to give. No matter how big or small, your donations will be eternally appreciated.


This case is still unsolved by Douglas County Sheriff office. Clink this link Justice for Mike and Brittney for more information. If anyone has information on this case they are asked to call the Sheriff's Office tip line at 541-957-2099.
