   St. Louis County Police are hoping someone can lead them to a teenager who fled naked from Christian Hospital Thursday evening.  Police have issued an Endangered Persons Advisory for 16-year-old Vernon J. Echols.  

   Police say the teen was taken to the hospital at Dunn Road and Highway-367 after attempting suicide.  But he escaped.  He was last seen heading north.  

   Echols is described as black, with a medium complexion, black hair and brown eyes.  He's five-seven and 133-pounds.  Police say he wasn't wearing any clothes when he took off.  

   Anyone with information is urged to call 9-1-1.

9 year old dies after shot in head

Thursday, 11 July 2013 04:25 Published in Local News

   St. Louis police say a 9 year old boy who was shot while riding in a car early Wednesday morning has died.  

   Police say Tyrese Short had been riding in a car with his father, another man and a woman in north St. Louis, when a man in another car shot him.  No one else was injured.  

   The boy was taken to a nearby police station for help. He was rushed to St. Louis Children's Hospital, but died later in the day.  

   St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack says investigator suspect that the boy's father or the 22 year old man driving had been the gunman's target. An 18 year old woman was also in the car.  Police say it's unclear why the child and his father were out at 3:30 in the morning.

   No information has been released about a possible suspect.

IL Comptroller seeking legal review of Quinn pay cut

Thursday, 11 July 2013 04:20 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) - Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says she's looking into whether Gov. Pat Quinn can legally cut lawmakers' pay.

   Quinn cut $13.8 million for legislators' paychecks from a budget bill Wednesday. He says it's the consequence for lawmakers failing to address the state's $97 billion pension shortfall.

   Topinka says questions have been raised about whether Quinn's actions are constitutional.

   A provision of the Illinois Constitution says changes in lawmaker salary should not take effect during the term in which they were elected.

   Topinka says she has requested a legal review. It should be complete before Aug. 1, when lawmakers are scheduled to receive their next paychecks.

   Quinn says a prior court ruling gives him the authority. He also says he's not changing their salary, just withholding the money to pay it.
