Deputies receive tip on location of person of interest in double murder

Santa Rosa County deputies followed up on a tip that a double murder person of interest might be in Milton Thursday evening.

Authorities said William Boyette Jr. was believed to be inside a trailer in Milton.

Deputies demanded that he came outside to surrender.

Boyette is a person of interest in a double murder that took place on Tuesday at the Emerald Sands Inn.

Channel 3's David Gonzalez said he heard authorities yell through a loud speaker, "Billy Boyette, come out of the trailer and onto the streets."

Boyette has active warrants for his arrest on charges of battery, grand theft auto and kidnapping charges.

Deputies waited for someone to come out of the home, but no one exited.

After The Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office obtained a search warrant they entered the home.

The home was empty and the search continues for the suspect.

The Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office said it was not a standoff.

Boyette is considered armed and dangerous.

Call 911 if you see or know of Boyette’s whereabouts.
