Clark allegedly left a truck on the Bowie County woman’s property which had been reported stolen by a woman in another state. According to the affidavit, woman in multiple states have contacted law enforcement about Clark.

The Bowie County woman’s home in Hooks, Texas, was destroyed by fire the morning of Nov. 6. The night before the blaze, the woman allegedly received an email from Clark which stated, “Game Over.”

State fire investigators could not determine a cause of the fire but determined that it began in the woman’s bedroom. The woman was at work at the time and was informed of the fire through a phone call from a neighbor, according to the affidavit.

Clark allegedly made statements about the house fire to employees of a local liquor store at 9:15 a.m. the morning of Nov. 6 though a call to authorities reporting the structure fire was not received until 9:52 a.m.

Clark was arrested March 2 on a charge of felony stalking. He was released March 23 on a $50,000 bond with conditions. Clark must wear a GPS monitor and is prohibited from having any contact with the alleged victim.
