   A family already grieving over the loss of a loved one is now grieving after his personal belongings were taken from a south city funeral home.  

   Leslie Granadillo had died May 21st after a five year battle with prostate cancer.  

   When his family went to retrieve the items from Kutis Funeral Home on Gravois, they learned that the mementos had mistakenly been given to someone else.  

   St. Louis police are investigating, but Granadillo's sister-in-law, Christy Roberts says the family isn't interested in filing charges.  They just want the mementos back for Granadillo's two young sons.

   "It means nothing to you and has no monetary value," Roberts said.  "Just bring it back.  Bring it here.  Bring it, you know, to someplace public so we can get it back, because we just want it for them."

   The missing items include a memory book, a lock of hair, medallions that said loving father, loving husband and a cross.  Granadillo's family is asking everyone in the area to check dumpsters and trash cans for the items as well.

   Witnesses are calling it a frightening situation.  

   A toddler stopped traffic on Southwest Avenue in south St. Louis Monday.  Fox 2 News reports that the child had been in the care of the Top of the Hill Daycare in the 5800 block of Southwest, when he wandered into the middle of the street.  

   One witness says the child in the street wasn't the only thing that was disturbing. "And on the curb, probably the hero in this thing, was a little girl, who was probably about five, holding back other toddlers from running into the street."

   Several cars stopped, their drivers corralling the child and getting him out of the road, then calling police.

   Police are now investigating.  

   The daycare has a sign that reads “state licensed,” but according to the Department of Health And Senior Services, that license expired at the end of March.  Police say the daycare is licensed with the city of St. Louis.

   A broken water main is forcing some south city residents to boil their water.  

   The city of St. Louis has issued a boil order while crews finish repairs to a 12-inch water main at Jamieson and Westway Road, near Francis Park.  The boil order affects the southwestern part of the city, including those south of Arsenal, west of Hampton, north of Eichelberger and east of River Des Peres.  

   Residents are instructed to boil water for three minutes before drinking it or using it in cooking.  If water sample tests due back Tuesday afternoon are clear, the boil order could be lifted at that time.  

   Because of the boil order, all three campuses of  the Word of Life Lutheran School and Step Ahead Childcare Academy in Southwest St. Louis will be closed Tuesday.

A teenager shot and killed last week while allegedly trying to break into a south city home is the same teen charged in a "knockout game" attack that made headlines.

Fifteen year old Demetrius Murphy had been charged in the 2011 attack on Matt Quain, the man Mayor Francis Slay and his body guard had found bleeding at the curb along South Grand.

Murphy had been charged in the attack, but those charges were dropped after a young witness refused to testify in that case.

Quain spoke with Fox 2 News Monday night after learning about Murphy's death. "You know, I'm not happy that somebody died," Quain said. But he did say he wished the violence would end. "I wish there was more that people could do to put an end to it."

Murphy's alleged burglary accomplice, 17 year old Michael Bryant is facing murder charges in the 15 year old's death. The homeowner is not expected to be charged.
