There's a nationwide manhunt for a woman who police say brutally killed her boyfriend, and U.S. Marshals say she could be in Atlanta. 

Police say Tamera Williams killed her boyfriend, David Carter, in the Detroit area last fall. His dismembered body was found along a stretch of Interstate 75 more than 100 miles from his home. 

U.S. Marshals say when Williams was named a person of interest in the case she vanished. 

"She went from Michigan to Brooklyn, New York and that's where the case goes cold,"  said U.S. Marshals Deputy Aaron Garcia.

Investigators say she has ties to people around the world.  She once worked as a travel agent and has a close association with the Order of Eastern Stars.

"We know she has contacts all over the country with the affiliations," said Deputy Garcia.

That association may have led her to Georgia.  U.S. Marshals say around the time of the Super Bowl they developed information she may be in Atlanta.  Whether she's still here, they don't know for certain, but they vow to track her down.

"She's a threat to the community. She's a danger out there to the community. We need to find her," said Deputy Garcia.

Williams is 39 years old. She's 5'9' and weighs 190 pounds.  She has a large tattoo of roses on her arm. If you know anything about her, contact police. There is a reward in this case.
