Authorities are still piecing together the details in the case of the murder of a student from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. The Major Case Squad says police have located the suspect’s BMW in St. Louis, which is several miles from the murder scene in Hazelwood.
Meanwhile, police say 19 year old Taylor Clark of St. Jacob was murdered by 24 year old Michael Gordon of St. Louis, a man he met on Craigslist. They say Clark was selling his car online and decided to meet with Gordon at MTC Truck Driving School, where Gordon worked. A witness reportedly told police they saw the suspect get in the car with Clark and drive to a wooded area. The same witness says they saw Gordon return with the car, but without Clark. Clark’s body was found in a wooded area near the business early Tuesday morning. Gordon is being held on a $1-million bond.
