Authorities said McCauley had been driving a silver Dodge Charger since 2010 and was spotted near Delmar and Goodfellow Boulevards at one point. At about 7 a.m., police found the charger on Clinton Street. Police arrived to make an arrest and McCley shot himself, authorities said. It was found with a bulletproof vest.
McCley’s mother, Michelle Clayton, 55, was also arrested on Friday. Clayton lives in the same block where McCully shot himself, police said.
Clayton is accused of obstructing the prosecution of a crime because police say she lied and misled investigators while trying to arrest her son. She is on bond for only $ 25,000.
McCully and Williams McCully were married on July 29, 2018 and separated on February 20, according to the divorce petition. McKley worked as a truck driver for Hogan Transport. His wife worked at Centene Corp. as a payment supervisor, the declaration said. McCully sought child support and joint custody of Zoe.
McCully filed for divorce on February 28. His address is listed in court documents as a home in Bellefontaine Neighbors, on Blackhurst Drive, while his wife still lives in the home of the Lockwig Trail. McCully’s divorce lawyer, Marshall Höckel, declined to talk about the divorce proceedings with Post-Dispatch on Friday.
Roseann McCulley’s Facebook page includes recent posts revealing a woman trying to move forward. In late February, pointing out that her husband had given her black eyes, she thanked her friends for their support. “I still have a place to live, my health, my wealth, my children … as a person … A VICTIM WHERE?”
