Police are searching for the estranged husband of a Stoughton woman found dead in her home Saturday night.
Stoughton police were called to perform a well-being check at the Glen Echo Boulevard home of 46-year-old Anita Clark at about 7:20 p.m., said Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey in a phone interview.
Clark’s friends had “expressed concern” that she had missed work as a phlebotomist in Boston and had been out of contact for a “period of time,” said Morrissey.
Police found evidence of a struggle in the bedroom then discovered Clark’s body in a bedroom closet, Morrissey said. The cause of death has not been determined, but Clark appeared to have been stabbed, said David Traub, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.
“Based upon the evidence, a warrant has been obtained for the arrest of Willie Foster, 47, of Dorchester,” Clark’s estranged husband, said Morrissey.
He may be driving Clark’s car, a gray 2001 Pontiac Aztec. “We’re asking anyone who spots the vehicle or [Foster], or believe they know his whereabouts or potential whereabouts to call the Stoughton Police Department at 781-344-2424 or the Massachusetts State Police at 508-820-2121,” said Shastany.
