Investigators have identified the human remains found near railroad tracks in St. Louis city.
Authorities say the decomposed body was that of Joseph Hartsoe. Hartsoe was reported missing to Collinsville police on December 1.
Police are now investigating the details surrounding Hartsoe's death.
UPDATE: The City of St. Louis plans to appear a circuit court judge's ruling that invalidates the city's red light camera program.
Tuesday's ruling bars the city from processing payments for tickets and sending out violation notices. The city says they responded to and fixed problems in the red light camera program that were cited in a 2013 ruling. City Counselor Michael Garvin says they are going to ask the state Supreme Court to settle the matter.
Police Chief Sam Dotson says the cameras have reduced red light running--he says some of the first intersections to have the cameras installed have seen citations drop by 80 percent.
EARLIER: A judge in St. Louis says red light camera tickets are unenforceable. A ruling Tuesday by St. Louis Circuit Judge Steven Ohmer nullifies the city's red light camera ordinance and bars the city from enforcing any part of it. That includes processing payments for tickets and sending out violation notices or collection letters.
The ruling stems from a petition by two women who'd received red light camera tickets. Their attorney had argued that the law had already been voided by four other court rulings. The judge agreed.
Proponents of the law had argued that the women lacked standing because their tickets had already been dismissed. Judge Ohmer called this case an exception because of the "general public interest." He also wrote that it was obvious that the tickets had been dismissed in an attempt to avoid a ruling on the ordinance.
