Eric Hinson will spend 35 months in federal prison and repay over $600,000.

Caseyville Police Chief dies from apparent suicide

Thursday, 13 June 2013 13:42 Published in Local News

The Caseyville police chief facing misconduct charges, is dead from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound.

J.D. Roth was found on the back patio of his Fairview Heights home Thursday. Roth was under investigation for allegedly letting his girlfriend off for a felony drunk driving charge. Investigators also alleged that he used a pickup that was seized during a drug bust for personal reasons.

The Caseyville Mayor George Chance fired Roth in March. Roth had been chief for 10 years.

Organizers say that because of the Boston Marathon bombings tighter security will be in place at a St. Louis race.

Helen Chestnut--executive director for the Susan G Komen race for the cure tells KTRS News nearly 40-thousand people are expected for this Saturday's race. Police do not plan to search backpacks but Chestnut offers this advice, "You bring a backpack keep it with you. There are the see-through backpacks that are good too. But the main thing is to keep...your personal items with you."

Noticeable extra security measures include bomb-detection dogs, security cameras and uniformed officers. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson also asks participants to report anyone who looks suspicious. The race kicks off around 7:30 Saturday morning.
