    Police said Crivelli, who they named a person of interest in the case, could be driving a blue Chevrolet Cavalier with Florida license plate DVAX48.

    According to police, Crivelli was the woman's boyfriend.

    Bill Drew lives across the street from the apartment complex and said he's heard loud arguing coming from the apartment in the past.

    "You hear it escalating a lot from that front building. Every night they fight, but this is kind of scary. I'm ready to go back home, go back north. I live right across the street," Drew said.

    They said he may have shaved his head and beard.

    According to police, anyone who knows of Crivelli's whereabouts should not make contact with him, but should call police.

    Police have not identified the victim.
