The man who was found guilty of murdering Taylor Clark was sentenced to life in prison without parole Tuesday.
Michael Gordon was convicted in October of murder and armed criminal action in the death of 19-year-old SIUE student Taylor Clark.
Clark went missing on May 4, 2015 after being contacted about his 2007 Nissan 350ZX he was selling on Craigslist. His body and car were found the next day at the Hazelwood, Missouri business where Gordon worked.
The case sparked a major change in how people viewed Craigslist. Most police departments in the St. Louis-area now offer a safe space to do sales, and many of them made that change because of what happened to Clark.
