Update: Police: Missing SIUE student Taylor Clark found shot to death
HAZELWOOD, MO (KTVI) – The case of a missing SIU-Edwardsville student shifted Tuesday from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department to the Major Case Squad. Taylor Clark, 19, went missing after posting an ad on Craigslist to sell his car.
The car, a 2007 Nissan 350ZX, was recovered Tuesday evening in the parking lot of a truck driving school in the 12000 block of Missouri Bottom Road in Hazelwood. Clark was last seen Monday morning in Glen Carbon. His family is from St. Jacob, IL.
Investigators would not immediately comment on reports that Clark’s body has been found in an area near where his car was recovered. The Major Case Squad expects to release more information Wednesday morning.
Investigators said Clark made contact with at least one person through the Craigslist ad. The Madison County Sheriff said it’s possible that person set up Clark. His most recent cell phone activity was detected in an area near where his car was found.
