The FBI is asking for help in identifying a man whose skeletal remains were found by a hunter in a wooded area northwest of Sauget in December of 2012.  
The federal agency has created a clay sculpture to help assist with identification.  
A release from the Sauget Police Department says that five Russian coins in a pair of blue sweatpants were found along with the bones.  
The remains were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification.  Testing revealed that the skeleton belongs to a 30 to 50 year old white male, between 5-feet 6 and 6-feet-1 inches tall. If you have any information about this case you are urged to call the Sauget Police department at 618-337-526.

   St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson is doing something he's never done before.  He's calling for an FBI investigation of an officer-involved shooting.  

   In April 2013, 25 year old Cary Ball was shot to death by police after he fled a traffic stop.  The officers say Ball had pointed his gun at them.  A police investigation concluded last month that the shooting was justified.  

   Ball's family told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they don't believe he would have aimed a gun at police.  They've filed a wrongful-death suit.  

   Chief Dotson told the paper that he's asked for the FBI probe to make certain his department got it right, and not because of any allegations against the officers involved.

   St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch is asking the FBI to help in the investigation of suspicious financial dealings at the county health department.  Chief Fitch has asked the FBI to conduct a forensic investigation into the financial records involving former health department administrator Ed Mueth.  

   County police are trying to determine if Mueth had co-conspirators when he allegedly used a bogus computer company to steal millions of dollars from the county before committing suicide.  

   Chief Fitch says his department has received hundreds of pages of subpoenaed records and wants to question dozens of people over Mueth's financial dealings.

FBI identifies John Doe 27

He has only been known as John Doe 27. But Thursday, the FBI announced it had identified the man wanted in connection with child pornography circulating on the Internet.  

Authorities say the man was photographed while engaging in sexually explicit activities with a child.  

Law enforcement agencies went of the offensive earlier this week and it is now believed that tips generated from the publicity campaign have led to the identification and location, in the Midwest, of the man in the photographs.  

At this time, no arrest warrants have been issued or served, but the investigation continues. The FBI says it is grateful to the public for their vigilance and assistance in this case.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The FBI is looking into whether a child found at a Gypsy camp in Greece is a Kansas City, Mo., girl, although the children's ages don't appear to match.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said Tuesday the October 2011 disappearance of Lisa Irwin from her Kansas City home remains an open investigation and that agents follow up on all tips. Patton says the agency began receiving calls after the image of a girl found with a Gypsy couple appeared in media reports.

A dental examination showed the girl in Greece, known only as "Maria," is older than previously thought - 5 or 6, instead of 4.

Lisa would turn 3 in November. Her family's attorney, John Picerno, says he has spoken to authorities about the investigation in Greece.

FBI found 4 explosives in Holmes' apartment

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Three FBI experts say they found four types of explosives and other chemicals when they tested items found in Colorado theater shooting defendant James Holmes' apartment.

The experts testified Tuesday at a pretrial hearing to determine whether they will testify at Holmes' trial. They shed little new light on the case and mostly answered questions about testing methods.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the July 2012 attack.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers are arguing over evidence that could be used to weaken his insanity claim, including homemade bombs found in his apartment.

Police have said the bombs were intricately planned and were meant to divert officers from the theater. Prosecutors could cite that as evidence Holmes was sane.

Man arrested in O'Fallon, Ill. bank heist

   O'FALLON, Ill. (AP) - A man suspected of robbing a southwestern Illinois bank is jailed pending charges, as authorities try to figure out whether he may have been involved in holdups in other states.

   Investigators say the man was arrested Tuesday near a Swansea cornfield after they found a car matching the description of a vehicle that had been used two hours earlier to rob the Bank of O'Fallon.

   The search for the man involved dozens of law enforcers and an Illinois State Police airplane.

   Authorities say the man entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money from a teller before running away.

   O'Fallon interim police chief Jeff Wild says the man may be responsible for other bank robberies outside Illinois. 

   There's no immediate word on charges. The FBI is investigating.
