Knowing the Health Department suspected Edward Mueth had been scheming to steal millions of dollars before he killed himself would have made things easier for St. Louis County Police investigating the fraud. That's according to Police Chief Tim Fitch, who told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his department didn't learn about the scam until 18 hours after Meuth's September 19, 2013 suicide.
Now, the paper reports it has received documents that show that County Health officials suspected the scheme, but delayed reporting it to law enforcement.
Officials say Mueth embezzled $3.4 million over six years by using his computer company to overcharge the county for equiptment and technical services.
Former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark want's Albert Pujols's defamation lawsuit against him dismissed...or at the very least, he wants some things clarified.
Clark filed a motion in St. Louis County Circuit Court Monday. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Clark is claiming the suit filed against him in October didn't properly identify Pujols or the elements of defamation.
Pujols sued Clark over comments Clark made in August on his sports talk show on WGNU radio. Clark had said he knew for a fact that Pujols "was a juicer." He also claimed Pujols' former trainer told him about injecting Pujols with performance-enhancing drugs.
The trainer has denied the conversation.
