ST. CHARLES, Mo. -- Authorities say the disappearance of a St. Charles man was part of a scheme to fake his own death and cover up allegations that he sexually assaulted a 6-year-old girl.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Raymond David Avett of St. Charles disappeared in June, leaving suicide notes at several locations, including inside his Ford Explorer that was found abandoned in downtown St. Louis. He turned up three weeks later in Maryland.

Avett and his former girlfriend, 34-year-old Jennifer L. Callaway, were both charged Wednesday with concealing a felony.

Authorities allege that Callaway coerced Avett into giving her his home, SUV, boat and life insurance in exchange for not telling police about the alleged sexual assault.

Both suspects are jailed, Avett on $250,000 bond, Callaway on $200,000 bond.

 

Baseball fans are not the only group hoping the Cardinals go far in the postseason. Businesses are rooting for the Redbirds.

Ruth Sergenian is the Director of Economic Research for the St. Louis Regional Chamber says each game in the NLDS has an impact around $5.3 million. The total impact on the region would depend based on the number of home games played, but Sergenian estimates that if the Cards went through the World Series, it could be an input of nearly $70 million.

The season's economic impact was $347 million, up from $331 million for the 2012 season.

 

Aide who left gun in Missouri Capitol bathroom resigns

Thursday, 03 October 2013 17:30 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - An aide to Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones has resigned after leaving a loaded handgun in the basement of the state Capitol last month.

The gun belonging to Dave Evans was found Sept. 20 in a black, nylon holster on top of a toilet paper dispenser in a restroom. Police say Evans has a permit to carry concealed weapons.

The speaker's chief of staff, Tom Smith, confirmed Thursday that Evans resigned Sept. 27 as a legislative assistant to Jones. Smith says he was satisfied with the corrective actions Evans agreed to after the incident but that Evans thought it was best for himself and colleagues to step down.

A 2011 Missouri law allows elected officials and their employees to carry concealed firearms inside the Capitol if they have permits.
