Bodies of two men found at Babler State Park

   St. Louis County Police aren't releasing the names of two men found shot to death at Babler State Park in Wildwood Tuesday evening.  

   Police won't call it a murder-suicide, but St. Louis County Police officer Brian Schellman confirms that investigators are not looking for anybody in connection to the shootings.  

   One of the men found dead was middle-aged and the other in his late 20s.  Police say they may be father and son.  

   Their bodies were discovered about 5:00 p.m. by two people out for a walk in the park.  

   Authorities say they'll release the victims' names after relatives are notified.

Lake Chesterfield woes continue

   Residents in a Wildwood subdivision aren't sure if their lake will ever hold water.  

   Lake Chesterfield is empty again.  Major repairs were made in 2004 when the lake drained into a giant sink hole one night.  

   This time, subdivision trustees hired an engineering firm to lower the lake a little, in an effort to find the source of a slow leak.  But during the process, a valve stuck, and all of the water, and most of the fish, drained away according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  

   It cost more than $600,000 to fix it last time.  And the subdivision is bound to fix it this time.  How it will cost this time isn't known.

   Subdivision trustees say the real problem is the limestone that lies beneath the man-made lake.

Man shot at card game in Wildwood

A card game at a home in Wildwood ended on Sunday when one of the players shot another man in the side. It happened Sunday night in the 100 block of Franklin Avenue in the Glencoe area of Wildwood. Police say 37-year-old Alfred Castro got into an argument at the table, then went to his room and returned with a .38-caliber revolver. He then shot the 45-year-old male victim, who was later dropped off at a police station in Ellisville. Police found Castro several hours later with the weapon still in his possession. He is currently awaiting trial on a felony drug case in St. Louis County.

Three dead after Wildwood crash

   Three people are dead and a fourth is injured after a convertible crashed into the deck of a Wildwood home last night.  The crash happened just before 10:00 p.m. on Homestead Manor Drive near Babler State Park.  

   Monarch Fire Protection District spokesman Roger Herin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that all of the victims were in their late teens or early twenties.  Two were pronounced dead at the scene.  A third died after being airlifted to a hospital.  The fourth victim suffered minor injuries.  

   Two people who'd been sitting on the deck when it was hit were not hurt.  

   Herin says the cause of the crash isn't known, but speed may have been a factor.

WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) - The St. Louis County town of Wildwood has given first-round approval to an ordinance requiring decontamination of properties where methamphetamine labs have been found.

Half of the states in the U.S. have passed laws requiring cleanup from meth labs, but not Missouri, even though the state has ranked No. 1 in meth lab seizures every year but one over the past decade.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Wildwood and at least two other St. Louis-area towns - Festus and Crestwood - have passed their own cleanup ordinances. Jefferson County also has a decontamination law.

The Wildwood proposal will become law if approved at a second reading.

Old Slave Road in Wildwood will keep its controversial name, at least for now.  

After hearing comments from more than a dozen residents and other interested parties Monday night, the Wildwood City Council failed to draft a resolution to change the road's name.  Several residents who live along the road had pushed to rename it Elijah Madison Lane, after an escaped slave and Civil War veteran.  

Aside from a handful of homes, Old Slave Road also leads to the Old Slave Cemetery, where more than 60 slaves are buried.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Old Slave Road in suburban St. Louis could be getting a new name.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Historic Preservation Commission in Wildwood is considering whether to recommend a name change.

Residents who live along the road complain that the name tends to offend people. Opponents say residents are trying to sanitize history.

Spanning just six-tenths of a mile, the private street used to be the main road to a planation home and runs past a historic slave cemetery.

Historic Preservation Commission chairman Lynne Martin says the current name dates only from about 1979, when a developer platted the subdivision along the road.

Most of the property owners are recommending renaming it Elijah Madison Lane to recognize a former slave who fought in the Civil War.
