It’s been almost a week since Cobb County, Georgia, authorities found human remains that are likely of U.S. Army veteran Chase Massner. On Friday, the man who formerly owned the Kennesaw home where the remains were found, Brad Clement, fled after being charged with concealing the death of another person.
On Monday afternoon, police confirmed that the blue Honda Civic that Clement was said to be driving, was parked in the driveway of his mother’s Atlanta home with no license plate attached. Clement was not in the home, and many are now wondering if the suspect is playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse with authorities, taunting them and distracting them while he furthers himself from capture.
At this point, Clement is only charged with hiding Massner’s body,, something that he’s vehemently denied for three years, since Massner disappeared in 2014. Authorities told Clement’s attorney that if an investigation determines that foul play caused Massner’s death, Clement’s charges could be upgraded to homicide.
At first, Clement agreed with authorities and scheduled a time to turn himself in, but when the time came, he was nowhere to be found. His family told his attorney that Clement decided to flee, and they claim they have no idea where he could.
In this episode of “Crime Stories,” Nancy Grace speaks with special guest, investigative reporter Daniel Wilkerson from CBS46, along with listeners who discuss how and why it took so long to find Massner and where Clement may be headed.
“Crime Stories with Nancy Grace” is now a national radio show, heard on SiriusXM’s Triumph Channel 132, five times a day. You can also subscribe and download the daily podcasts at iTunes and Google Play.
