Darren Wilson, the cop involved with the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, was married this past month to fellow officer Barbara Spralding, on October 24.
The two were wed in Clayton, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis, in what appears to be a private ceremony officiated by one of Wilson’s lawyers, Greg Kloeppel, and a municipal judge, Christopher Graville, from Oakland, Mo.
Wilson, 28, and Spralding, 37, own a home together in Crestwood, another suburb of St. Louis, though they have reportedly not been spotted there since Wilson killed Brown.
A clerk at the marriage license desk on the fourth floor of the Lawrence K. Roos administrative building told the Times she definitely did not expect to see Wilson show up at her cubicle. The clerk noted that Wilson and his bride could have chosen to get married in another state to have a much better chance at anonymity.
Both Wilson and Spradling have been married previously.
Wilson finalized a divorce from his first wife on Nov. 10, 2013, according to public records.
