Florissant Police issue phone scam alert

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 15:45 Published in Local News

Florissant police have a warning for city residents.

 

Police say that scammers have been posing as IRS officials and calling residents. An investigation led police to a phone number that originates in the Buffalo, New York area. People from around the country have been getting calls from the number. The person on the other end of the line says they are with the IRS and the victim owes money.

 

The Florissant Police remind everyone--be aware of the scam and do not give out personal information over the phone without confirming the caller's identity.

 

Police were able to identify the phone number that the scammers were calling from as: (716) 242-7149

St. Louis City enacts plan to deal with homeless vets

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 15:44 Published in Local News

St. Louis city's plan to end chronic homelessness officially kicked off this week.

 

The city is focusing on homeless veterans. Members of the city's human services and Veteran's Administration are out trying to identify homeless veterans. The veterans will be given access to housing and services to help them stay off the streets.

 

The city says the plan to end homelessness will take ten years to complete.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe says the four-campus system is committed to bolstering its mental health services as a separate legal review of a former school swimmer's suicide is expected to soon begin.
 
Wolfe spoke personally Wednesday about Sasha Menu Courey's 2011 death, noting that his own daughter is a first-year college athlete.
 
He told reporters that "one of our students is dead. And I don't want to feel that anymore."
 
The university's Board of Curators is expected to vote later Wednesday on Wolfe's request for an independent report on how the school handled Menu Courey's death and her claims of a sexual assault by several football players when she was a freshman.
