There is a big manhunt in the Florida panhandle and southern Alabama for a man who is a triple-murder suspect. His name is William “Billy” Boyette, 44. He is reported to be with a 37-year old woman, Mary Rice.
Billy allegedly killed two women last Tuesday at a motel room in Milton, Florida. One of the women, Alicia Greer (30) used to date Billy. It is not clear what the motive was for Billy to kill the two women.
On Friday morning, the duo killed a 52-year old woman/nurse on Friday at her Alabama home, leaving her body on the front yard while driving off with her. The car was found abandoned in Florida on Saturday morning.
Yesterday (Monday) morning the pair broke into a home in Pensacola (FL) and shot a 28-year old mother and stole her car while her 2-year old son was in the house. The mother is in the hospital in critical condition and the boy is unharmed.
The duo drove the stolen car to a gas station and then ate breakfast at a Hardees. That’s the last of them — they are believed to still be in the local area and is driving a white 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt (the one that was stolen).
The manhunt for him is intense with law enforcement in both states working together to try and track him down. There is a reward of $21,000. A sheriff warned Billy saying, “There are two places you can end up: prison or a cemetery. The choice is yours.”
I’ll keep an eye on the situation and hopefully they can catch Billy.
