St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will be the longest serving mayor in the city's history. Slay was elected a record 4th term last night after, easily defeating Green Party candidate James McNeely. Back in March, Slay defeated Board of Alderman President Lewis Reed in a heated Democratic primary battle. Slay's inaguration will take place April 16th at the City Hall rotunda.
Manchester police and the FBI are asking for help identifying a man they believe spiked the soup the Dierbergs at Lafayette Center. Employees pulled the soup container on Thursday, after witnesses saw a man pouring a foreign substance into the container near the salad bar. The soup was removed before any was purchased. The soup-spiker was caught on surveillance video before he could make his escape. He's described as a Caucasian man between 50 and 60 years old with a heavy build and light beard.
A standing-room only crowd will have to come back another night to see the conclusion of Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul's impeachment hearing. Proceedings lasted for a little more than six hours last night. Hundreds of residents and spectators packed the Ellisville Elementary School gymnasium, which was chosen to host the event because of the expected size of the crowd. Ellisville City Counsel members are seeking to remove the 32-year-old Mayor for office, claiming he abused and overreached his authority. Paul's lawyer Chet Pleban unsuccessfully tried several methods to get the hearing thrown out. Pleban says the counsel is biased and the lawyer for the prosecution was illegally chosen. All of Pleban's objections were overruled. The hearing is scheduled to resume tonight at 7:00.
