Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Patrece is believed to be a victim of alleged serial killer Lucious Boyd.
Patrece is the daughter of a Broward Sheriff's Office sergeant. She lived in a neighborhood near the Boyd funeral home (where Boyd worked) and sometimes hung out with Boyd, but friends say they didn't date. Patrece disappeared after taking a trip with Boyd to Winter Haven, Florida. Boyd said she went off with two other men during the trip, but her father dismisses that idea.Fort Lauderdale police say Boyd's account of what happened to Alston is contradictory. He told the cops that witnesses could verify that Alston had also returned, but those witnesses later denied having seen her. Investigators are convinced that Boyd knows where Alston's body is located. Boyd is currently on Death Row in Florida for the murder of Dawnia Dacosta in December 1998. Police investigators say Boyd is a suspect in as many as 10 unsolved disappearances.
