7-Eleven is offering a reward in the case of a St. Louis clerk who was shot to death at one their locations earlier this summer. 30-year-old Bhutanese refugee Mon Rai was gunned down on June 10 at the 7-Eleven on Gravois and Bates in south County. He left behind a pregnant wife and an 8-year-old son. 7-Eleven says the reward will be given to anyone with information leading to “the apprehension, arrest and indictment” of those responsible for Rai’s death.
Cars parked in Forest Park overnight were targeted by vandals.
They were parked near the Grand Basin and Art Hill.
Scattered glass was strewn across the lot and police found several handbags that had been rummaged through and discarded.
Police found vandalized vehicles in the park with similar evidence found including broken windows, car doors left open and items thrown about. Authorities say they also had similar incidents on West Pine in the park.
The St. Louis Fire Marshal and a city building inspector are trying to determine just how a local musician fell to his death in a downtown loft building Saturday afternoon.
Fire Captain David Neighbors says 61 year old Bob Reuter was killed when he fell down an elevator shaft in the 1100 block of St. Charles Street.
Neighbors says there was no safety grill on the freight elevator shaft. "It's like a swing door," Neighbors said. "And then there's just a short ledge. And so we can only speculate, but stepped onto that ledge and assumed that the elevator was there."
Neighbors says Reuter fell 18 feet from the lobby entrance to the bottom of the elevator shaft in the basement.
Reuter was known as a musician, photographer and radio personality. Funeral arrangements and a public memorial are still being finalized.
A person familiar with deliberations tells The Associated Press that Major League Baseball has informed the New York Yankees that Rodriguez will be suspended Monday but can play while he appeals the penalty. The person said the Yankees were not told the exact length of the suspension, but were left under the impression it will be through the 2014 season.
The person also said Rodriguez could get a shorter penalty for violating baseball's drug agreement if he gives up the right to file a grievance and force the case before an arbitrator.
Rodriguez said on Saturday that he planned to rejoin his teammates in time for Monday's series opener at Chicago. Manager Joe Girardi said he will pencil A-Rod into the lineup.
A second source says MLB planned an announcement for noon EDT Monday.
Thirteen other players faced discipline following baseball's probe of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. All-Stars Nelson Cruz of Texas and Jhonny Peralta of Detroit are among those facing the stiffest penalties.
Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal served suspensions after positive tests last year. They've been tied to this performance-enhancing drug case, but can't be disciplined again for the same offense.
