In a Shreveport jail last week, Robert Atlas confessed to Bedford detectives that he killed his pregnant girlfriend after they argued at a Fort Worth bar, according to search warrant affidavits obtained Tuesday by the Star-Telegram.
After finding the body of Tracy Anderson, 27, on March 23 in a blood-splattered apartment and learning that she shared it with Atlas, detectives began looking for the 26-year-old man.
Anderson and her unborn child died of multiple stab wounds, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.
And on March 24, detectives learned, Atlas was using a new prepaid Verizon cellphone, which they tracked to Shreveport, according to the affidavits.
He was arrested the next day.
