U.S. Marshals are looking for a Tennessee man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death in front of her two children. According to investigators, he could be in Atlanta. 

Earlier this month, investigators said Raymond Clark, 40, of Memphis, got into an argument with Zeneatrice Crawford in her 2013 Buick Verano. Clark allegedly pulled a knife and repeatedly stabbed Crawford with a 10-year-old and 6-year-old also in the car.

Crawford's body was later found behind a vacant Memphis building.

The kids turned up unharmed in a different location in Memphis, according to police. A few days later, Clark was seen in Atlanta.

On June 6, Atlanta police located Crawford's car in the 600 block of Glenwood Avenue in Grant Park after a neighbor called to report it as abandoned.

"He parked it right here, literally right in front of my house," recalled Hunter Kemp.

Kemp said the man parked the car and then tried to start it, but when it wouldn't turn over the man started to walk away.  Kemp was approaching the man to offer him some assistance when he said the man turned around. 

"I saw him turn and I saw him look at me and it just, it wasn't a good feeling," said Kemp. "So, I didn't go and help him out." 

Kemp last saw the man turning down Cameron Street.

Clark is described as 5'7" and 170 pounds. He has a scar on his inner right arm and on that same arm he has a tattoo of a snake. Investigators said Clark has another tattoo of a smiley face on his left arm.

Clark is wanted for first degree murder, especially aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated kidnapping. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911 or Atlanta Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
