A mysterious death


Recommended Posts

I think a family estrangement goes quite some way to explain why it took so long to identify him. Because it's strange that no family came forward, given that it was a major news story at the time. But not all families are all sweetness and light. The focus was on him being a poor old man who died alone, but maybe he wasn't a nice young man back in the day.

More mystery: There’s a news report that says that he changed his last name, apparently following a family feud. His original birth last name ended in –berg, which indicates Central European heritage, but that his mother’s family are believed to be originally from Poland and of Jewish descent. It seems that the family name was subsequently anglicised, but then he changed it again.

It could well be that his family (apparently now just his mother and younger brother) didn’t know he was missing because he was estranged, and that might be why they didn’t pick up on the news reports after he’d died because he was already not in their lives.

It’s pure speculation on my part, but I have been learning about the history of Eastern Europe as well as the effects and aftermath of WWII. He was born in 1948, presumably in this country after his parents had survived and then fled here. Sometimes history (and WWII is still a recent history) can have effects that trickle down through the generations. (We still don’t treat soldiers with PTSD very well, let alone veterans.)

As it seems that his death was solely self-inflicted, that suggests a very self-controlled individual, and people like that don’t always make for happy families.

      William Eugene Boyette Jr, 44 years old is now considered a spree killer and is on the run here locally.  He is accompanied by   Mary Barbara Craig Rice,  37.  It was thought that she might be  a hostage, but it is now said that she is a wiling accomplice.
       
      Boyette  shot and killed 2 women in a motel in MIlton FL. One is said to be a girlfriend or ex,  who was pressing charges against him for  a vicious beating he gave her that landed her in the hospital.It's unknown how the other woman ws connected to  Boyette or anyone.  Apparently he went on  the  run with Mary Rice,  a woman he'd been  seeing for a few weeks. They ended up across the state line in Lillian Alabama, where they shot and killed another woman outside her home, and stole her car... She is in critical condition.  Her 2 year old son who was at home with her, was unharmed..  Then they came BACK to Florida,  to the Beulah area outside Pensacola, abandoned the stolen car, and camped in the woods.  They were spotted on a trail camera.  In Beulah, they broke into a home, shot a fourth woman, and stole her car. They then went to a gas station, and also had breakfast at a Hardee's.. Now their whereabouts are unknown.  
       
      Okay they were east of Pensacola, killed 2.  Drove west   of Pensacola to Lillian Alabama, and killed someone at random for her car.  Then back to  north of Pensacola, inbetween Milton and  the Alabama state line..   They are said to be hiding in  the woods, near Beulah.   His family is in protective custody, as he has threatened them..  He has stated he will not be caught alive.  
      He is a career criminal.  He'd been arrested for assault, battery, obstructing justice, kidnapping.  he should not have been walking free.  He's a spice user.
      6 days.  He's been on the run for 6 days and hasn't gone anywhere . I find that very odd.  
       
      His name sounds like a Millennium killer name.  this "plot"  sounds millenniumistic..  West, then back,  inbetween start point and west point.... waiting?  for what?
      I notice the 2 stolen cars  were white.  Don't know about the original vehicle he was in, but it was stolen too. So is it  a preference?  Or are there THAT many white cars around? If a preference, why white?
      I'm frankly on edge as is the whole are I am sure.  The couple are seeking out abandoned buildings, wooded areas, but could be any freaking where in a 3 county area...or gone.  Who  knows?  They are armed, and dangerous.  And I saw his weapon,  I don't think what I have is any match! My saving grace?  I don't have a car out there for anyone to want!

      Possible motive for the first victim. ( motel victims) I think the one was targeted, the other was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The 3rd and 4th were targeted for their cars.
      After Lillian AL murder  Okay his original vehicle was a black SUV.  He'd abandoned it in Lillian AL, an then killed a woman in her own front yard for her car.

      Images there taken form a trail cam they didn't know they were walking in front of.  

      Mary Rice has apparently died her hair orange according to reports.
       
      Anyone with information on any of these individuals is asked to immediately contact local law enforcement.
      Those who wish to remain completely anonymous are asked to contact the Santa Rosa County Crime Stoppers Program at 850-437-STOP or their website at www.srccs.com.
