A murderous couple remains on the loose after killing three women and critically wounding another in two states over the last week, authorities say. Police believe the suspects then drove to Lillian, Ala., killed 52-year-old Peggy Broz in her front yard, and fled with her vehicle on Friday.
Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Chip Simmons said the two are suspected of shooting a young mother during a home invasion near Pensacola on Monday, and taking her auto. Investigators are also scouring possible encampments and are using canine teams during the searches, the Pensacola News Journal reports. "Everyone, and I mean everyone, should be aware of what they look like, how they've been traveling and take the appropriate measures".
Investigators said Rice was with William "Billy" Boyette when they shot and killed Broz Friday morning.
Billy Boyette and Mary Rice remain at-large.
On Monday she was upgraded to an official suspect.
Boyette is a suspect in the deaths of Alicia Greer and Jacqueline Moore in Milton, Florida, and Peggy Broz in Lillian, Alabama.
"What we are experiencing is a running nightmare, quite honestly", ECSO Chief Deputy Chip Simmons said during a Monday press conference. Authorities say the other victims didn't appear to have any connection to Boyette. Her 2-year-old son was reportedly unharmed.
Crocker's white Chevrolet Cobalt was stolen and video surveillance confirmed Boyette and Rice took the vehicle to a nearby Shell station and ate at a Hardee's restaurant not long after the attack, according to authorities.

Can Beyonce still perform at Coachella?

A spokeswoman for the sheriff's department told The Post that the manhunt for Boyette and Rice was ongoing as of early Tuesday.
"We don't have cases like this very often but you have to remember Santa Rosa County is a little bit bigger than the state of Rhode Island and a lot of it is wooded area so if you want to hide there are a lot of places to do that, the great part about that is sooner or later he's going to make a mistake and when he does we're going to pounce on him", said Johnson.
Agencies in Georgia, Florida and Alabama are working together on the search for the suspects.
Authorities said Rice has dyed her hair orange and has a gap between her top teeth.
It is not known what Greer's relationship was with Moore - but authorities believe that Boyette knew her as well. She also has been spotted on surveillance video entering stores on her own.
Morgan said all available resources have been contacted and are aware of this situation.
"It's game on. Our officers are not gonna take a shot from this guy, so he better be prepared", Johnson said.
