Burglary, not drugs. That's what Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham may be involved with according to police in Columbia.
Until Wednesday's public information report, the police had declined any comment on the pending investigation into Sunday's burglary involving Green-Beckham, though it's still unclear if he is a suspect, victim or witness.
The report says police responded to a first-degree burglary at the Brookside Townhomes about 2:30 Sunday morning. The Columbia Missourian quotes residents as saying Green-Beckham was involved in an incident there around that time. But no one has been arrested or charged in the case.
On Monday, Mizzou Coach Gary Pinkel announced the Tiger stand-out had been indefinitely suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Green-Beckham has been the subject what police have called two separate marijuana-related arrests within about 15 months, the latest in January in his home town of Springfield. But his adoptive father, Hillcrest High School football coach John Beckham, tells the Springfield News-Leader that his suspension isn't related to those incidents.
After several outburst during his trial, a St. Louis man has been found guilty in last year's shooting of a financial aid director at the Stevens Institute of Business & Arts in downtown St. Louis. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the jury Wednesday afternoon found Sean Johnson guilty of first-degree assault and armed criminal action while acquitting him of possessing a defaced firearm.
The 35 year old was accused of shooting Greg Elsenrath at the business school in January 2013. Johnson, then a student at the school, was upset because his financial aid was drying up just as he was about to graduate.
Elsenrath was seriously injured, but did recover.
Two people are facing charges and third is still at large in a kidnapping and robbery on the campus of SIU-Edwardsville. At a press conference Wednesday afternoon, campus police said the victim had been set up by a friend.
Two other SIU-E students, 18 year old Jabreel Watson and 20 year old Shantel Rogers are charged with felony kidnapping, armed robbery and burglary. Police say they are still looking for a third suspect, an unidentified male.
On April 2nd an SIU-E student had reported being set upon outside his residence hall. He reported being forced into a car at gunpoint, driven to an ATM and forced to withdraw cash. He wasn't injured.
Police are hoping surveillance video from the ATM's camera will help in their search for the third suspect.
Police say the victims' 18 year old son is among the four suspects arrested in the deaths of a St. Francois County couple whose home burned Monday morning.
The bodies of 50 year old Stanley Halter and his 46 year old wife, Tammy were found after firefighters extinguished the pre-dawn blaze at the couples rural Park Hills home. Police say an autopsy indicated that Stanley and Tammy Halter had been murdered.
Four people are now in custody, including 18 year old Dallas Halter, the couple's son. Also in custody are 19 year old William Carrico, 19 year old Adam Moore and 24 year old Maxwell Lee. All four were arrested on Wednesday at different locations in and around Ironton County.
Police haven't released a possible motive for the killings.
