Police have found the body of Taylor S. Clark, the 19 year old SIUE student from St. Jacob, who was reported missing Monday. Police in Hazelwood, MO have confirmed that Clark was the victim of a homicide and that his body was found about 400 yards from his car. The vehicle was found Tuesday evening in the parking lot of a truck driving school on Missouri Bottom Road.
The Major Case Squad has taken over the investigation.
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.
He had just taken a final exam, paid tuition and met with his girlfriend before his disappearance.
