The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office announce the arrest of
22-year-old Curtis L. Clark of Daytona, Fla. for a double homicide that
occurred in Hendry County more than a year ago.. Clark is charged with two
counts of second degree murder. Agents say Clark shot and killed Marvin
Dixon and Melvin Williams on April 24, 2003 in a neighborhood near the city
of Clewiston. Investigators have interviewed numerous witnesses and
collected forensic evidence in this case that leads them to believe Clark
shot both men during an argument while in the victims' vehicle. Clark was
in Hendry County living with family members at the time of the murders.
Shortly after the murders, Clark returned to Daytona where he was arrested
on outstanding warrants.
FDLE special agents arrested Clark this morning at the Mayo Correctional
Institution while serving time on unrelated drug and probation charges.
Agents transported Clark to the Hendry County Jail to face the murder
