Police searching area where elderly woman froze to death

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 00:45 Published in Local News

   Police are digging for evidence at the home of an elderly woman who was found frozen to death in her driveway last weekend.  Glen Carbon police say their investigation isn't related to the death of 83 year old Mary Kampwerth.  

   Illinois State Police and local officials say they're acting on a tip regarding some type of criminal activity, but won't comment on what the crime was or who may be involved.  

   Investigators using heavy equipment have checked 90-percent of the property, focusing a lot of attention on a pond behind the home.    

   The search of the home and property along Illinois Rte. 159 halted late Tuesday night because of cold and darkness, but investigators say it will resume Wednesday morning.

 

STL Co Health delayed telling police about Mueth scam

Tuesday, 14 January 2014 04:39 Published in Local News

   Knowing the Health Department suspected Edward Mueth had been scheming to steal millions of dollars before he killed himself would have made things easier for St. Louis County Police investigating the fraud.  That's according to Police Chief Tim Fitch, who told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his department didn't learn about the scam until 18 hours after Meuth's September 19, 2013 suicide.  

   Now, the paper reports it has received documents that show that County Health officials suspected the scheme, but delayed reporting it to law enforcement.  

   Officials say Mueth embezzled $3.4 million over six years by using his computer company to overcharge the county for equiptment and technical services.  

Cleveland civil rights leader Arnold Pinkney dies

Tuesday, 14 January 2014 04:34 Published in National News
   CLEVELAND (AP) — A political strategist and civil rights activist who helped elect Ohio's first black congressman and managed Jesse Jackson's unsuccessful 1984 presidential campaign has died. Arnold Pinkney was 84.
   His wife, Betty Pinkney, says he died Monday at a Cleveland hospice after a recent hospitalization.
   Arnold Pinkney had a long career in Democratic political campaigns including the 1968 campaign of Louis Stokes, who became Ohio's first black member of Congress. He also advised Jackson, Cleveland Mayor Carl Stokes and Gov. Richard Celeste.
   He was special adviser to the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus, which plans a special recognition on Feb. 19. Caucus President Alicia Reece says he leaves a legacy of public service.
   Pinkney was co-founder of Pinkney-Perry Insurance Agency, Ohio's oldest and largest minority-owned insurance company.
