William Boyette and Mary Craig Rice are believed to have started their crime rampage on January 31 with the deaths of two women in a motel. They then allegedly killed another woman in Lillian, Alabama.
Yesterday, Boyette and Rice are said to have broken into a home and shot a woman near Pensacola and stolen her vehicle. The woman survived and her two-year-old son was unharmed.
Now that they have a vehicle they could be anywhere in the Southeast today.
It was originally believed that Rice may be a victim and not a suspect, but officials have changed that thinking. Boyette, 44, had a long history of violent crimes leading up to the homicides over the past week. Arrest records show a consistent violent pattern in which Boyette is accused of attacking girlfriends, threatening to kill them and on numerous occasions allegedly beating or stabbing them until they called for help.
