Saturday, 19 October 2013 10:05 Published in Local News

HIGHLAND, Ill. (AP) — Family and friends of an 18-year-old southwestern Illinois man who died after being found unconscious at a University of Missouri dorm are saying their final goodbyes.

Services for Gregory Holthaus were scheduled for Friday in his hometown of Highland.

Police at the University of Missouri in Columbia say Holthaus was visiting students at the Pershing group of residence halls when he was found unresponsive October 13th. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police have said there was no indication of foul play, but the death is being investigated.

Holthaus graduated earlier this year from Highland High School, where he played varsity football and baseball. He was enrolled at a technical college.

Highland is about 30 miles northeast of St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A University City woman who worked in the accounting department at Schnucks headquarters in Maryland Heights faces felony theft charges for allegedly stealing more than $111,000 from the supermarket chain.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 35-year-old Lolita Martin was charged with removing money from a cash box at the company's main offices. Martin was responsible for overseeing the box, which was used to provide change for the company cafeteria.

The company fired Martin in May amid an internal investigation. Defense attorney Mark Fredman declined comment but said his client plans to plead not guilty

Girl in Missouri rape case writes 1st-person account

Saturday, 19 October 2013 09:55 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri teen who says she was raped by an older boy at her high school has written an account of her ordeal for an online woman's magazine.

In the article posted Friday on xojane.com, Daisy Coleman writes that the 2012 incident sent her into a spiral and she twice tried to commit suicide.

Mandy Stadtmiller, deputy editor for the website, says she asked Daisy to provide the first-person account after reading about her story.

Felony charges against two teens were dropped after the prosecutor in Maryville said the witnesses refused to cooperate.

On Wednesday, the prosecutor asked for a special prosecutor to re-examine the evidence.
