‘Armed and dangerous’ fugitive sought in woman’s murder

Detectives believe Cornell Bell, a suspect in his ex-girlfriend's murder, could be hiding in Miami-Dade County Friday.

Weymouth police officers and Massachusetts State Police warned the public that they consider him to be armed and dangerous. Miami-Dade and Coral Gables detectives know he has links to Coral Gables.

Bell is the prime suspect in the murder of Michele Clarke, a mom from Weymouth, Massachusetts. The suspected career criminal is likely in a stolen blue 2005 Ford pick up truck with a Massachusetts tag FF47BK. The truck has a tool box in the bed. 

Police officers found the body of Clarke, 33, early Saturday morning inside her apartment in the Weymouth's Lake Street area. Her 6-year-old son was with his father, Andlee Cribb. 

"She suffered apparent sharp trauma injuries to her body," Assistant Norfolk District Attorney Greg Connor said. 

Cribb told detectives that he was on the phone with her when he heard her shouting, "Get off me! Get off me!" He said that's why he called 911. 

Quincy District Court issued a warrant out for his arrest Sunday. Detectives believe he has identifications for Tony Smith, Mark Simmons, Cornel James, Cornel Carara, Cavin Lebert and Kerrol Florizel Bailey.

Bell already has two outstanding warrants. One is from 1997 for an charge of assault with the intent to murder. The other is from 2002 for an armed robbery. 

Detectives were asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477, Massachusetts State Police at 508-820-2121, Massachusetts State Police Trooper Yuri Bukhenik at 703-887-6207 or Weymouth Detective Robert Regan at 339-201-1324.
