SC robbery suspect may be wanted for murder, other robberies in 3 states
PENDLETON, S.C. — Authorities are investigating whether a man wanted in an armed robbery at a gas station is the same man wanted in connection with a murder and armed robberies in three other states.
Deputies told WHNS two armed men walked into the 7-Eleven on Highway 187 at about 2:20 a.m. Sunday and demanded money before escaping in a dark-colored minivan.
Deputies want to know if one of the men is 28-year-old Robert Clark, of Dennison, Ohio.
Investigators in Ohio are searching for Clark in connection with the murders of Doyle and Lillian Chumney, according to WOIO. The Chumneys were reported missing from their home on Jan. 21. Their bodies were later discovered in a burned car that was found on an abandoned road the following day.
