a 5-year-old son, but her pleas were answered with gunshots. The
alleged assassins then stuffed the couple’s bodies in the truck of a

made the discovery. Bennett and Dinnall were arrested a few weeks
later and charged with first-degree murder; however, Clarke has yet

to all fugitives like Clarke to put them on notice that it’s only a
matter of time before we come knocking,” said U.S. Marshal Christina
Pharo of the Southern District of Florida. “Our reputation of being
the best in fugitive apprehension can be backed up with results, and
we are hoping to add Clarke’s apprehension to the numbers.”

to Clarke’s arrest.
