Suspect in Gibsonton stabbing death still loose

GIBSONTON — Deputies are still searching for a 34-year-old man wanted in the Monday stabbing death of Nicole Williams.

Egan Atkins, who also uses the name Charles Lammott, entered a ground-floor window of his ex-wife's home, grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed her to death as she slept, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

A search warrant affidavit filed Tuesday shows that investigators found a knife in the front-yard hedges, and also seized a knife block from the kitchen, along with other items.

Atkins is a Jamaican national who has lived in the United States legally, and there is no indication that he has left the country, the Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies ask that anyone with information about his whereabouts call (813) 247-8200.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
