Bodies of two men found at Babler State Park

Wednesday, 12 March 2014 01:00 Published in Local News

   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.

 

Judge upholds Missouri limit on funeral protests

Wednesday, 12 March 2014 00:44 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A federal judge has upheld a Missouri law barring protests within 300 feet of a funeral.
   The Missouri law creates a buffer zone around funeral sites from one hour before until one hour after a funeral.
   Attorney General Chris Koster said Tuesday that the law is now in effect as a result of a federal court ruling a day earlier.
   But an attorney for the Kansas woman who challenged the law said it has been enforced since last April, when a federal appeals court rejected a free-speech challenge to the buffer zone.
   The latest ruling by U.S. District Judge Fernando Gaitan Jr. dismissed a claim that the time restriction was unconstitutionally vague.
   The lawsuit was brought by a member of a Topeka-based church that denounces homosexuality and frequently protests at funerals.
 
   EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - Two more former inmates of a southern Illinois jail are suing over strip searches they claim were unconstitutional.
   The Belleville News-Democrat reports Teresa Hale and Leticia Jackson of Belleville filed the federal lawsuit against St. Clair County and jail officials. Seeking more than $350,000 in damages, the lawsuit alleges the women were strip searched while jailed in 2012 for suspected drunken driving.
   In December, 29 inmates filed a similar lawsuit, seeking $10 million in damages.
   Sheriff Rick Watson told The Associated Press the cases have no merit, and that his department follows state and federal statutes.
   A lawsuit echoing similar allegations against the jail was dismissed in December after a federal judge ruled strip searching prisoners as a group isn't unconstitutional if the searches weren't intended to humiliate.
