    Makes no sense at all, unless maybe he was planning on trading "up" for something, his car plus some cash in order to buy what the perpetrator supposedly had. He shows up with his car and the extra cash, and they kill him for it.

    The perp is also very familiar with that Budget driving school, and knew that no one would be around at the time they would be meeting. The media articles imply he was found buried on the same property. There's GOT to be some surveillance video at that location.

    HAZELWOOD, MO (KPLR)- Authorities have found the car of SIUE student Taylor Clark who vanished after trying to sell the car on Craigslist. The Major Case Squad has now been called in and there are reports that Clark`s body was found not far from his car.

    There is an article at the link below with a MAP. Click on the balloons for descriptions and locations.

    http://www.bnd.com/news/local/article20270682.html

    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.

    Here is a blown up map of the trucking school and the area he was found.

    I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer sometimes, but I have a hard time seeing how this murder couldn't have been committed by someone with very close ties to that trucking company, maybe even working there.

    I'm just reading this thread and find it so sad. WTH? I hope it is a slam dunk, as you said Steelman, for LE to find and convict Taylor's murderer. What a piece of crap.

    May Taylor rest in peace and may his family and friends find comfort in each other.

    I wish - I live in StL City & although StL County is in charge, I don't hold out hope even IF there is video

    I do hope it's an easy murder to solve, though -- such a sad, sad story & such a Evil World

    I live in a nice subdivision and about a year ago a man was shot and killed in the park across the road when he showed up to sell a car. It seems like this is happening more and more with car sales online.

    I do buy and sell on Craigslist and local swap sites, but I always meet at the police station beside City Hall - take no chances.

    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.

    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.

    I thought that at first, but if that was the case it seems a panicked killer would leave the body where it was and not take the time to dig a shallow grave. JMO.
