picture of where the car was found....it looks like a Budget truck rental lot
I cannot figure out what the motivation through Craigslist would be. He was selling the car, not buying so it wouldn't be assumed he had a lot of money on him and they didn't steal the car.
I just feel horrible for his family and friends!
The Major Case Squad is planning on releasing more information on the disappearance of an SIUE student during a press conference later today.
The Troy Times Tribune is reporting on its Facebook page that Taylor Clark’s body was discovered in a shallow grave in Missouri. KTRS reached out to investigators this morning and police aren’t confirming that report.
Police are now confirming that the body of missing SIU-Edwardsville student Taylor Clark has been found.
Hazelwood police say Clarks body was found about 400 yards from his car, which was found last evening in the parking lot of a truck driving school on Missouri Bottom Road.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of his death.
Clark was offering his red 2007 Nissan 350ZX for sale on Craigslist, and investigators believe he was going to meet someone who had responded to the ad when he was last seen Monday in Glen Carbon.
There is an article at the link below with a MAP. Click on the balloons for descriptions and locations.
It states in the article that his last cellphone call was made very close to where he and the car were found, at 11:37 a.m.
That means he would have met sometime around noon on Monday. Was the Budget truck school open ?? This all occurred in broad daylight , during work hours ??
Surely this is going to be a slam dunker for the cops.
It is so sad how cheap a life is to some people. This young man had his whole life ahead of him and suddenly it's all over.
If the body was found in a shallow grave, that sounds like the perp had plenty of time to carry out this murder. And since the car wasn't taken, what was the motive?
I hope we learn more soon.
wow! I just read that he was shot to death.
I wonder if the intent was to steal the car but Taylor was uncooperative or things went awry, ending with Taylor dead and the would be thief dumping body and car in a panic.
