Police ID woman found dead behind Belleville business

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 00:46 Published in Local News

   Police in Belleville now know the identity of a woman found dead behind a business Tuesday morning.   Authorities haven't released her name, but say she was 83 years old and lived about 10 blocks from where she was found.  

   Robert Holmes, the owner of a local auto shop made the discovery about 10:30 a.m.  He called police after finding the woman's body in a snowbank behind his shop in the 1800 block of West Main Street.  

   The victim had been wearing only pajamas and blood was found on the ground in the area.  An autopsy has been performed, but police haven't released her cause of death.

Rock Hill mayor won't seek another term

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 00:11 Published in Local News

   Rock Hill Mayor Daniel DiPlacido is not going to run for reelection.

   DiPlacido made the announcement at Tuesday night's city board meeting.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that DiPlacido read a brief statement saying there were a number of reasons for his "difficult decision," but he didn't elaborate on what those reasons were.  

   The filing deadline for the April election closed earlier in the day, so Alderman Edward Mahan will be the only mayoral candidate on the ballot in Rock Hill.

   Normandy school officials, parents and students are waiting to see if Missouri legislators will provide the struggling district with the emergency funds it needs to make it through the school year.  Officials say without state aid, the district will be bankrupt by April after spending millions of dollars on tuition and busing for students who've transferred out of the unaccredited district.  
   So what will happen if lawmakers refuse the five-million dollar request and the district runs out of money before the school year ends?  
   Missouri Education Commissioner, Chris Nicastro tells Fox 2 News if that happens, the Normandy schools would most likely be closed. "In the short term at least, I think the only viable option would be for the state board to assign those kids to go to school elsewhere," she said.
   Nicastro says she'll be meeting with Normandy District officials on Wednesday to discuss the districts financial crisis.
