Detectives Charge Michael Alicie with the Death of Jutina Silvey
Sept. 14, 2012

GALVESTON - On September 9th police were dispatched to the 3200 block of Seawall Blvd to investigate a possible drowning. Officers were told that three friends had been drinking and they had gone into the ocean for a swim. Officers were also advised that Jutina Silvey had stayed in the water with Michael Alicie after the other person from the group had come ashore. Alicie later got out of the water and said that the couple had been swept on to the rock groin by the current and he could not find Silvey.

Galveston Police, The Coast Guard, and Galveston Beach Patrol began a search of the water and shoreline. At approximately 10:30 am her body was found on a rock groin in the 3600 block of Seawall. 

Detectives began an investigation and later determined that Silvey's death was criminal in nature after reviewing physical evidence indicating she was beaten and strangled. The Galveston County District Attorney's Office was consulted and a warrant was filed for the arrest of Michael Alicie.

At 10:00am Alicie was taken into custody at 203 Texas Ave in Texas City without incident. He is charged with the murder of Jutina Silvey and was booked into the Galveston County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

I cannot believe that he would do this. I have known and loved this man for a long time. He is gentle and kind always! This is a huge mistake!

Huge mistake? Yes it was!
Well, I watched them put her in the ground yesterday. He was the last one with her and didnt stick around to look for her or talk to the police. Someone beat and choked the life out of that wonderful woman.

There was drinking involved. Im sure you know how that changes ones behavior.

Doesn't matter if he had been drinking or not...Only a monster could do such a thing!! Sick!!!..

Something happen out in that water only he can tell us now !! It don't look good for him he got mad about something out there ! Truth will come out if he has any kind of heart. I feel very bad for the families.

Jutina was my cousin.. he took her life from her and her kid's and family!! He did it and I hope he spends the rest of his life behind bar's. He is a killer!!!! If you can't believe it, that's your problem, cause he did it.. I was at her funeral. They made her look the best they could. Imagine being beaten and strangled, what u or your family would look like!!! I hope u pay forever u scom bag!!!!!

You don't know all the facts yet so how can you say he is guilty? There was two other people there as well! And He is not a monster! He is a loving Father and son. Maybe get all the facts before you assume someone is guilty!!!!

It is a true tragedy what happen to that woman. Strong waves and current, hard rocks, and alcohol do not mix. Its a shame that he is getting blamed for an accidental death. He wasn't left uninjured and barely escaped with his life. My thoughts are with both families. Justice will prevail and free the innocent.

Ummm....Somebody please tell me how a strong current,alcohol and hard rocks can strangle somebody???..Id bet she wasn't even murdered in the water...He was most likely coming onto to her and was turned down..So he snapped and killed her..Monster!!
Posted by Sweet88 at 9/23/2012 10:25:33 AM

Even his girlfriend isn't convinced of his innocence!.That should tell you something right there..
Posted by Sweet88 at 9/23/2012 10:30:09 AM

I was not related to her but I was a really good friend and it was really touching I am very upset about this and I know that people might think that it was not him but I'm not very happy I'm ashened

Does anyone have an update on this case?
Posted by Amanda at 1/5/2014 10:44:30 AM

This is my cousin and if any of your people knew my family you would know that he did NOT kill that lady. my cousin is a wonderful man and would not hurt anyone. There is a big mix up and I pray no more mistakes will happen. Michaels family stands behind him and the truth! He is no monster, nor a killer and everyone will find tht out soon enough.
