By AccessWDUN staff

Gwinnett Police have identified a suspect in the fatal stabbing of a local woman inside a Suwanee residence Monday afternoon.
Authorities, at last report, are currently searching for Jesse Louis Bodie, 33. Bodie is described as a black male with black hair and brown eyes. He weighs around 170 pounds and stands roughly 6-feet-1-inches tall.
Police said the stabbing happened around 2:30 p.m. at a home on Crescent Walk Lane.
"The 911 caller told our dispatchers that a female family member had been stabbed," explained Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Michelle Pihera. "The Gwinnett County Fire Department responded to the scene and took the victim to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville in serious condition."
Although specific details were not immediately available, police said there was a "history of domestic disputes between the victim and suspect."
The victim, whose name has not been released, later died of her injuries at the hospital.
Officers dispatched to the home where the stabbing occurred searched for the suspect on scene, but were unable to locate him.

"The known suspect [Bodie] fled the scene, and his whereabouts are unknown. Officers have saturated the area in an attempt to find him," said Cpl. Pihera.
"A reverse 911 was issued to the residents in this neighborhood," Pihera continued. "The statement tells the residents to call 911 if they see the suspect."
Pihera said that while Bodie has not been charged in the case, he is the subject of other active arrest warrants. It was unknown at the time what charges those warrants addressed.
Bodie is not known to have a car, police said, and may be on foot.
Anyone with knowledge of the victim's whereabouts is asked to contact Gwinnett County authorities.
