UPDATE (10:15 a.m.) – Authorities believe wanted fugitive Billy Boyette is responsible for a Monday morning home invasion in Beulah.

cobalt12The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a 2006 White Chevy Cobalt that was stolen from the home in Beulah Monday morning. Deputies believe Boyette, wanted for three murders along the Gulf Coast, escaped in that vehicle and is still in the area.

The license plate reads “9613BJ” and is from the state of Florida. There is also a sticker on the back that looks like a skull and crossbones. Authorities believe the vehicle might have heavy damage to the passenger side door.

Crocker is a random target and does not have any ties to Boyette, Morgan added.

Morgan said Boyette and Mary Rice, the woman he is traveling with, were then seen at a Hardee’s and a gas station down the street from the scene of the home invasion.  Witnesses say Boyette did not exit the vehicle.  Rice, now with orange hair, exited the vehicle to get food and supplies.



ORIGINAL STORY – The Escambia Sheriff’s office has confirmed that they are investigating a home invasion in the Beulah area.

Amber Southard with the Sheriff’s office says that a female victim was injured and has been transported to the hospital.

Beulah is the same area where a car allegedly stolen by William Boyette was recovered Saturday Morning.  The owner of that car, Peggy Broz, was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound in her front yard Friday morning.

The ECSO could not confirm if this home invasion is related to the William Boyette investigation.
