Once again I’m sad to post that the body of 19-year-old Taylor S. Clark was found shot to death 400 yards from the car he was trying to sell on craigslist. Taylor’s car was found abandoned in Hazelwood, Missouri. No suspect has been named or arrested at this time.

Police are seeking the public’s help in this case. Please call the Major Case Squad if you have any tips: 314-513-5225

Still no word if Taylor was set up through craigslist but the memory of the murder of Bud and June Runion, who died under similar circumstances in Georgia, are still fresh in our minds.

My prayers and condolences go out to Taylor’s friends and family.

UPDATE 5/6/2015: Police in Missouri have arrested 24-year-old Michael Gordon of St. Louis and have officially charged him with the murder of Taylor Clark. Taylor’s murder does appear to be yet another ‘craigslist killing’ as investigators have said that Taylor and Gordon exchanged e-mails about the car that Taylor was selling on craigslist.
