The masked killer whom Susan Campbell saw was wearing gloves. Clearly, he did not want to leave fingerprints. But in the other room, near where her husband, Stephen Beglane, was shot to death, Seminole County deputies found something the killers left behind by mistake: a McDonald's bag.

The masked killer whom Susan Campbell saw was wearing gloves. Clearly, he did not want to leave fingerprints.

But in the other room, near where her husband, Stephen Beglane, was shot to death, Seminole County deputies found something the killers left behind by mistake: a McDonald’s bag.

Inside were a half-dozen zip ties like those the killers had used to bind Campbell’s wrists and the one found on her husband’s right hand.

A crime-scene technician checked the paper bag for fingerprints and spotted one inside. Back at the Seminole County fingerprint lab, an analyst made a match: Tests showed it belonged to Carrington Ivory, a 25-year-old Orlando man with a history of drug arrests.

Ivory, 25, is now in the Seminole County Jail accused of murder, robbery, home invasion and burglary.
