SC police release new details in 2011 slayings

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Columbia police are releasing new details in a 2011 double homicide that investigators at the time called one of the most brutal cases they had ever seen.

The State newspaper reports ( ) that police are hoping the new information will help solve the killings of 25-year-old Candra Alston and her 3-year-old daughter, Malaysia Boykin.

Police say that a computer, an expensive Gucci purse and children’s clothing were missing from the home where the two died. They don’t believe that robbery was the motive, though, and say neither was sexually assaulted.

Investigator Kevin Reese has interviewed more than 150 people since the two were found dead in January 2011.

Police have not said how they died. They’re keeping that a secret to help determine which tips are legitimate.
