KSDK-TV pulls story after man found dead

ST. LOUIS, Mo (KTRS) Moments before an investigative report was supposed to broadcast on a St. Louis television station, it was pulled because the man highlighted in the story, was found dead.

Forty-year-old Jamie Hart filed a lawsuit against the "Better Business Bureau" in 2010, claiming the organization targeted him because he complained that the watchdog group wasn't’ treating him fairly. In the lawsuit, Hart asked for at least $500,000. The BBB denied any wrongdoing and the suit was dismissed a few months later.

Monday night, KSDK-TV decided to pull the "Five on Your Side" investigative story.

Investigators initially found no signs of foul play and the medical examiner said Hart did not suffer a heart attack. Toxicology tests are pending.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports station officials sent an e-mail to KSDK employees, that provided contact information for grief counselors.

GOLDEN CITY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a body found in southwest Missouri is that of 12-year-old Adriaunna Horton, who had been missing since Monday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol announced the identification late Thursday. Adriaunna was last seen when she got into a vehicle in Golden City, where she lived with her father. Her mother lives in Overland Park, Kan.

A man who once worked with the girl's father, 34-year-old Bobby Bourne Jr. of Lamar, has been jailed on charges of kidnapping. He's being held on $1 million bond.

The Joplin Globe reports Bourne is now in the Jasper County jail. Derek Walrod, a captain with the Jasper County Sheriff's Department, says Barton County officials wanted Bourne transferred to a larger, more secure jail.
