A Missouri man confessed to shooting someone after he was pulled over for speeding. But Mount Pleasant Police have no victim or crime scene to charge him with the crime.

Z’Core Hester-Henderson, 18, sped past a police officer in a red Toyota Corolla with Texas license plates traveling at 100 mph at 1:45 a.m. Monday. The officer pulled him over on Highway 32 near Larson Street.  Acting strange, Hester-Henderson told police he had just shot someone. But he wouldn’t tell them where the shooting happened or any details, according to a press release by the Mound Pleasant Police Department.

A pistol and spent shell casings were found inside the car.

Because the officer did not have a shooting victim or a crime scene, Hester-Henderson was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, and unreasonable and imprudent speed.

The investigation is still pending.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Mt. Pleasant Police Department at 884-0454 option #4 or Crime Stoppers at (262) 636-9330, via e-mail through the website www.racine.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637) and typing in TIP417 with your text message.”
