Bodies Found in Trunk of Car Land Alleged Murder Suspect On
U.S. Marshals' 15 Most Wanted Fugitive List

David ClarkeWashington, D.C. -- The heinous double murders of a young South Florida couple, whose bodies were discovered stuffed in the truck of a car, have landed alleged murder suspect, David Clarke, on the U.S. Marshals’ 15 Most Wanted Fugitive list. On June 16, 2007, Clarke and two other assailants, Clinton Dinnall and Anthony Bennett, waited for the couple, Chris Thompson and Cassandra Williams, at a home in Lauderhill, Fla., and brutally shot and killed them.

According to witnesses, Cassandra Williams pleaded that she was a mother and had 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 car and abandoned the vehicle in Sunrise, Fla., where authorities made the discovery. Bennett and Dinnall were arrested a few weeks later and charged with first-degree murder; however, Clarke has yet to be found. Today, the U.S. Marshals are adding Clarke to its 15 Most Wanted Fugitive list.

“Being added to the Marshals’ 15 Most Wanted list is a wake-up call 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.”

A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to Clarke’s arrest.

Clarke, 26, is a black male and Jamaican national. He is six feet tall and weighs 210 pounds. He has a medium-brown complexion, hazel-brown eyes, and may or may not have dreadlocks. He also normally wears a beard. Clark has relatives and associates in Jamaica, West Indies and in south Florida.

Anyone with information about David Clarke’s whereabouts should contact their nearest U.S. Marshals Service office or the agency’s toll-free number 1-800-336-0102.
