ST. LOUIS (AP) - A popular circus performer from St. Louis has been identified as the victim of a fiery accident.

Police on Tuesday said 21-year-old Reginald Moore died in the wreck. Moore lost control of his 2003 Toyota Corolla on Friday afternoon and crashed into a concrete support for a railroad trestle.

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Officials at the University of Massachusetts Medical School have discovered a $3.4 million theft by an employee who died in a December car accident.

School leaders told The Boston Globe an internal investigation found that for five years financial analyst Leo Villani siphoned funds from payments intended for the state Medicaid insurance program. It may be the biggest theft by a state employee in more than a decade.

Officials at the Worcester (WUS'-tur) school say Villani made $46,000 a year, but drove a Porsche, collected Salvador Dali paintings and built a large home in Uxbridge. They say he claimed he inherited money.

The school has dismissed one supervisor and disciplined several other workers in response to the theft. It also has called in an outside auditor.
