Randolph Co. man dies in farm accident

   A Randolph County man is dead after an apparent accident on his family's farm, just east of Red Bud, Illinois.   Emergency crews were called to the 6900 block of Griggs Road just before noon Monday.  

   Firefighters arrived to learn that 44 year old Jeffery Guebert had fallen into a grain elevator.  Rescue workers cut holes in the side of the silo in an attempt to retrieve Guebert, but it was too late.  His body was recovered by late afternoon.  

   Randolph County authorities are still trying to determine how Guebert fell into the elevator.

   The St. Louis Fire Marshal and a city building inspector are trying to determine just how a local musician fell to his death in a downtown loft building Saturday afternoon.  

   Fire Captain David Neighbors says 61 year old Bob Reuter was killed when he fell down an elevator shaft in the 1100 block of St. Charles Street.  

   Neighbors says there was no safety grill on the freight elevator shaft.  "It's like a swing door," Neighbors said.  "And then there's just a short ledge. And so we can only speculate, but stepped onto that ledge and assumed that the elevator was there."

   Neighbors says Reuter fell 18 feet from the lobby entrance to the bottom of the elevator shaft in the basement.    

   Reuter was known as a musician, photographer and radio personality.  Funeral arrangements and a public memorial are still being finalized.
