KSDK-TV pulls story after man found dead

ST. LOUIS, Mo (KTRS) Moments before an investigative report was supposed to broadcast on a St. Louis television station, it was pulled because the man highlighted in the story, was found dead.

Forty-year-old Jamie Hart filed a lawsuit against the "Better Business Bureau" in 2010, claiming the organization targeted him because he complained that the watchdog group wasn't’ treating him fairly. In the lawsuit, Hart asked for at least $500,000. The BBB denied any wrongdoing and the suit was dismissed a few months later.

Monday night, KSDK-TV decided to pull the "Five on Your Side" investigative story.

Investigators initially found no signs of foul play and the medical examiner said Hart did not suffer a heart attack. Toxicology tests are pending.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports station officials sent an e-mail to KSDK employees, that provided contact information for grief counselors.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are investigating whether an officer's actions during a homicide investigation jeopardized murder charges against the mother of a 1-year-old whose body was found in a trash bin.

City prosecutors dropped murder and child abuse charges against Melissa Shawneece Jackson on Monday, a week before she was set to go to trial for the death of her 18-month-old son, Marquell.  The infant's body was found behind their Jefferson Avenue apartment building in May 2011.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that an unidentified patrol officer was placed on administrative duty Wednesday as police conduct an internal investigation into his role.

Defense attorney Scott Rosenblum says the case collapsed after the officer testified in a deposition that he didn't alert detectives about incriminating statements made by Jackson's ex-boyfriend.

STL County Health paid $3.4 million to

   An independent audit of St. Louis County operations shows Edward Mueth collected $3.4 million from the St. Louis County Health Department before killing himself last month.  

   Mueth shot himself the day before he was to meet with his bosses at the County Health Department to discuss invoicing irregularities regarding his company, Gateway Technical Solutions.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that it's still not clear what goods and services Mueth's company actually delivered to the health department over a six year period.  

   The audit, delivered to the County Council Thursday, found that the county had approved equipment purchases and leases from Gateway Technical Solutions at prices that were well above retail.  

   The audit had been commissioned before Mueth's scam came to light.  A police investigation into Mueth's financial dealings with the Health Department is ongoing.
