The body of Taylor Clark, a 19-year-old Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville student who went missing while trying to sell his car on Craigslist, was found Tuesday.

Clark’s body was found not far from his abandoned 2007 Nissan 350ZX, The Associated Press reported. Tim Fagan, the deputy commander of the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis, said Clark was the victim of a homicide, but declined to provide further details.

KTVI-TV reported Clark was shot to death.
