Where is Alice Willis, Bobby Kent’s assassin, now?

Bobby Kent went out with his buddies that night in July 1993 and thought it would be a good time. But things quickly turned dark because his companions had planned to murder him that evening. People Magazine Presents: Crimes of the 90s 1993: Murder Pact on Investigation Discovery tells the tragic story of Bobby’s murder and how his ex-girlfriend Alice Willis was implicated in the conspiracy. So let’s learn more about them now, shall we?

Alice Willis who is she?

Before the incident, Alice and Bobby had been arranged by Lisa Connelly, a friend of Alice’s. Martin Puccio, Lisa’s boyfriend at the time, and Bobby were close friends. The two hit it off immediately and Alice said on the show that he appeared to be a gentleman. After that, however, it got worse and worse. Alice was allegedly a member of a sex worker ring at the time. She explained on the show that she did it to scare people and stand out from the crowd.

Alice and Bobby’s romance quickly turned dangerous. She claimed that Bobby hit her when she turned away from viewing gay porn while she physically abused her. She had also claimed that Bobby had sexually assaulted her, sparking discussion among the others about his actions. The strategy to murder Bobby was ultimately devised by Alice, Lisa and the others.

Alice later claimed that she only arrived at the site to watch a fight. “I got hit by this guy,” she continued (Bobby). So yeah, I wanted to witness his beating. I wanted him to experience it with me. Alice also remembers exactly what happened afterwards. “I remember standing there and seeing Marty walking like that,” she recalled. I got the impression that he pulled back and hit him. I will never forget the look on his face at that time. When I looked down I saw blood everywhere. and I just froze as he held his stomach.

Bobby’s mother believed Alice was the mastermind, but subsequent trials showed that Lisa and Martin were responsible. Alice said, “It was terrifying, but it was almost like being in a trance,” when asked why she didn’t stop what was happening. Depending on their commitment, the seven friends – including Alice – were ultimately given different punishments.

What happened to Alice Willis?

After Alice was eventually found guilty of second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder, she was sentenced to a more severe sentence. She was sentenced to 40 years in prison in May 1995, followed by 40 years of probation when she was 19. However, following an appeal, Alice’s sentence was reduced to 17 years, of which she has served eight. I think I should have gotten a prison sentence, she later admitted.

I totally agree, but I don’t think I got off easy, Alice continued. “I didn’t kill him, but it was a big problem.” Sincerely, I didn’t think he was going to die. How is it possible to regret something that one did not commit? She had a legal battle when she was charged with retail theft in 2013. It seems Alice has avoided trouble ever since. She earned her high school diploma while incarcerated and has lived with her husband in Melbourne, Florida since 2013, staying at home as a mother of four.
