Southeast Atlanta residents may want to take extra precaution after a Memphis man accused of murder was seen running in the neighborhood.

Residents said they saw Raymond Clark on Saturday leave a car at a home near Grant Park, Channel 2 Action News reported. Clark was last seen running along Glenwood Avenue.

Memphis police said Clark, 40, kidnapped and stabbed his girlfriend, Zeneatrice Crawford, to death Saturday in her car in front of two children.

Clark and Crawford were arguing before Clark allegedly took out a knife and stabbed her repeatedly. Crawford’s 10-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old friend were in the car during the stabbing.

Clark ditched his girlfriend’s car in Atlanta after leaving Memphis, police said. Crawford’s body was found dumped in a vacant house in Memphis. The kids were dropped off at another location.

Hunter Kemp told Channel 2 he and another neighbor thought Clark was visiting family or friends.

Kemp was sitting on his porch Saturday when he saw Clark get out of the car wearing flannel clothes.

When the car was still there two days later, he and a neighbor peeped inside where the “car was just butchered in blood,” Kemp told Channel 2.

Kemp took pictures and called police.

Atlanta police searched the car Monday evening, Channel 2 reported. It was busiest the neighborhood had been, residents told the news station, since it’s typically very quiet.

Memphis police will pick the car up as a part of evidence, the news station reported.

Clark has two tattoos, one of a smiley face on his left arm and another of a snake on his right arm.

He is being charged with murder and aggravated kidnapping.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
