Human Remains Found In Trash Of Man Killed By Marionville, MO, Police Officer

Springfield police have a crime scene of their own that is connected to the fatal shooting of a man last weekend in Marionville.

Thirty seven year-old Adam Raleigh Bergseth was shot on June 30th after he came at an officer with a pair of poultry shears. That officer was responding to a call of a woman who was being held against her will at the Applelane Townhomes.

Authorities have been showing a picture of a woman to neighbors of Bergseth's to see if any of them recognize the woman. The car Bergseth was driving belongs to a woman who is missing from another state.
Sounds like they have an Idea of who she is.

June 30th. You would have though by now they would have announced something about the suspected I.D .

The medical examiner did not make the confirmation until July 5th.

So I guess it turned out not to be the owner of the car? They said they have idea.

An ark woman went missing with her car. I wish they would have given a date the woman has been missing for a description of the car he was driving.

The one that smelled like CA's car.

Nothing on topix either.

He caught a DWI in December. Whose car was that he was driving seven months ago?

Hmmm he had also been busted and listed as homeless in November 2011. Someone dimed him out by calling the police knowing he had a suspended license and violation of parole?

This guy must have been in and out of lock up. He's obviously getting cars somewhere.

Okay, I found a mug shot for a Florida arrest on Bergseth from July of 2011, but it doesn't say what the charges was. I admit I am not the most computer savvy person, is there anyone who has access to online arrest records can help me with Adam R. (Raleigh) Bergseth records?

<mod snip>

I would appreciate it so much!

Good lookout. That's him alright.

Me thinks he has an unsavory charachter of a relative there in Florida.

Sadly I have a feeling we may have had a serial killer there.

So we now have the name of the Officer who shot him. We know he's been around that's for sure. Only he's coming up as residing in those two places in MO, and two in CA.

What's up with the missing woman whose car he was driving and the woman that called who was held against her will and like wfgodot asked what's up with the remains?



O/T no wonder my dad used to run the plates of any date that picked me up. Scary man this Bergseth.

I hope I'm wrong, but I think we're going to find more bodies associated with Bergseth.

What is irking me is they wont release the name of his victim, or the name of the persons who is missing who's car he had.

I understand the suspect is deceased but still..

Also I saw things that point to WA but I really didnt want to consider that until I am sure.

Who Was Adam Bergseth; Is There More Than One Victim Connected To Him:

The man who was shot and killed by a Marionville police officer on June 30th had an extensive criminal history and traveled highways and back roads between the east and west coasts frequently.

Bergseth attended elementary school at Piru School in California and bounced around schools near Oxnard, California, near where his mother still lives, according to a childhood friend of Bergseth's. He was also a creative writer, according to his facebook page.

There are some interesting comments at Kathee's article linked above. From one of her recent comments there, it appears the Springfield PD is awaiting some forensic test results.

I hope they investigate this case further to see if this guy killed others.

Possible human remains......that says it all. Yet people have guessed the guy killed is a serial killer? If they really believed he was, would the FBI be involved?
