Missouri vs. John Gadwood: Exhibit 7

Gadwood and his associates used this and two other cars to travel to the cafe/delicatessen where he murdered Lee Flacy. After Flacy was shot, he returned fire on his assailants as they began to flee the scene in this car. The sedan received further damage after it struck an object in an attempt to escape.
