A family already grieving over the loss of a loved one is now grieving after his personal belongings were taken from a south city funeral home.
Leslie Granadillo had died May 21st after a five year battle with prostate cancer.
When his family went to retrieve the items from Kutis Funeral Home on Gravois, they learned that the mementos had mistakenly been given to someone else.
St. Louis police are investigating, but Granadillo's sister-in-law, Christy Roberts says the family isn't interested in filing charges. They just want the mementos back for Granadillo's two young sons.
"It means nothing to you and has no monetary value," Roberts said. "Just bring it back. Bring it here. Bring it, you know, to someplace public so we can get it back, because we just want it for them."
The missing items include a memory book, a lock of hair, medallions that said loving father, loving husband and a cross. Granadillo's family is asking everyone in the area to check dumpsters and trash cans for the items as well.
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — An overloaded ferry capsized after hitting rocks in a remote river in Malaysia's part of tropical Borneo island on Tuesday, leaving an unknown number of people missing, police said. Some survivors swam ashore, and a search was underway.
The vessel was believed to be carrying much more than its recommended limit of 74 passengers, said Bakar Sibau, a district police chief in Malaysia's Sarawak state.
Bakar said there appeared to be dozens of survivors, but he did not have exact numbers. Some people swam ashore, and police divers, fire department officers and villagers were searching for the missing passengers.
"We hope they will be OK," Bakar said of the missing.
The boat was packed because many people are heading to their home villages for a harvest festival holiday that Borneo's indigenous tribes will celebrate later this week, Bakar said.
Rom Kulleh, a political aide who flew in a helicopter over the river shortly after the accident, said he and his state legislator boss saw the overturned boat.
"We spotted some people being saved by villagers in smaller boats," Rom told the AP.
The accident occurred midway through a 130-kilometer (80-mile) journey that usually takes about three hours.
Rivers form the main transportation network for hundreds of thousands of people in sprawling Sarawak. Public concerns about safety, including the enforcement of rules for ferry capacity, have occasionally emerged, but major boat accidents in Sarawak are rare.
Borneo island is divided among three countries: Indonesian territory in the south, two Malaysian states in the north and tiny Brunei on the north coast.
Four people are nursing bumps and bruises after the second story deck they were sitting on collapsed during a Memorial Day gathering.
It happened about 1:30 Monday afternoon at a condominium on Sandlewood Creek Court in Wildwood. Officials say there were problems with the strength of the balcony.
Metro West Fire responded to the incident. Fire Captain Jeff Haefer says his Fire Marshall and others are working with various property owners to prevent future accidents. "There is a collaborative effort between our fire bureau and the property owners," Haefer said. It's "to determine safety issues and point out those things to prevent this from happening again."
Chief Haefer says its fortunate that no one was seriously injured in the incident Monday.
