Police say William ‘Billy’ Boyette, 44, is on the run with Mary Rice, 37, after he shot and killed his ex-girlfriend Alicia Greer, whose body was found last week with another woman, Jacqueline Jeanette Moore.

They are also wanted in the killing of hospital worker Peggy Broz, stealing her car and later abandoning it. Their latest victim is a young mother, Kayla Crocker, who was shot Monday morning during a home invasion.

A relative found the young mother and her son, the killer couple stole Crocker’s car, she is now in hospital in a critical condition.
The bodies of the first victims Greer and Moore were found at the Emerald Sands Inn in Milton, Florida on January 31.
Greer’s family told WEAR-TV that she had been in a relationship with Boyette since Thanksgiving that grew increasingly violent.
Her father, Wayne Lane, said that two weeks before his daughter’s death, Boyette: “choked her down to the ground, kicked her in the face, hit her in the head with an unopened two liter bottle of soda, so bad she had to have stitches in the top of her head, had to have an MRI of her skull”.

The pair are believed to have split up and five warrants were issued for Boyette’s arrest after that incident, which Mr Lane believes sparked the start of the murder spree.
He victim’s father explained the charges, saying: ‘Assault, kidnapping because he [Boyette] kept her in a hotel room against her wishes, wouldn’t let her leave over in Milton at the Blackwater Inn for two days, crushed her phone so she had no contact with the outside.’
Mr Lane said the last contact he had with his daughter was a text message conversation in which he asked her if she was back together with Boyette – to which she never responded.

 It is not known what Greer’s relationship was with Moore, but authorities believe that Boyette knew her as well.
Greer, 30, was a mother of three children under ten, and had been staying with a relative two days before her death to evade Boyette, though despite pleas from family members to stay away from him, she agreed to see him.
Her mother, Kim Lane, told Fox 10: “This man murdered my daughter so bad, and shot her so bad, that we cannot have an open casket for her.
“I can’t even see my daughter one more time ever again.”

He said his agency has been ‘chasing a lot of shadows and a lot of rumors’ in the search for the pair. He warned residents to stay alert.
‘When you go to work, when you come home, make sure a friend or family member knows where you are,’ Morgan said.
He added that while the measures may seem extreme, ‘we’re dealing with an extreme situation here.’
