Report: Illinois child deaths linked to abuse rises

Thursday, 08 August 2013 10:48 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A new state report shows the number of Illinois children killed by abuse or neglect over the past year likely will be the state's most in a quarter century.

   The report released Thursday by the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services showed 94 of the 223 deaths investigated during the latest fiscal year that ended June 30 involved credible evidence of abuse or neglect.

   With 45 cases still being investigated and awaiting an official ruling, the number of abuse-related deaths appears likely to surpass the state's previous high of 102 in the 1989 fiscal year.

   Explanations for the latest increase remain elusive.

   But DCFS spokesman Dave Clarkin says the numbers underscore the importance of citizens proactively reporting suspected abuse or neglect before it proves fatal.

Flash flooding worsens in Missouri, kills driver

Thursday, 08 August 2013 10:39 Published in Local News

 ST. LOUIS (AP) - A southwest Missouri woman is dead after another round of torrential downpours caused flash flooding.

   McDonald County emergency management director Greg Sweeten says the woman died early Thursday when her car was swept off Missouri Route 90 near the town of Jane, Mo. Sweeten says normally-dry Brush Creek came up suddenly.

   The National Weather Service says parts of southwest Missouri got 10 inches of rain overnight. The town of Hollister was especially hard hit, with about 100 buildings damaged. More than two dozen people had to be rescued from homes, mostly mobile homes, in Hollister, which is near Branson in Taney County.

   The weather service says more heavy rain is likely for southern Missouri in the coming days.

   The stray dogs will be brought to St. Louis and made available for adoption.
