The FBI is asking for help in identifying a man whose skeletal remains were found by a hunter in a wooded area northwest of Sauget in December of 2012.  
The federal agency has created a clay sculpture to help assist with identification.  
A release from the Sauget Police Department says that five Russian coins in a pair of blue sweatpants were found along with the bones.  
The remains were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification.  Testing revealed that the skeleton belongs to a 30 to 50 year old white male, between 5-feet 6 and 6-feet-1 inches tall. If you have any information about this case you are urged to call the Sauget Police department at 618-337-526. 
 
Anyone missing a family member is urged to use the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. Search for loved ones here:  www.namus.gov

Weapons found in car at Hazelwood Central

Thursday, 23 January 2014 07:29 Published in Local News
 HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) - Two students at Hazelwood Central High School in St. Louis County have been arrested after two weapons were found inside a car parked on the school parking lot.
Hazelwood School District Superintendent Grayling Tobias, in a letter to parents, says the incident happened during dismissal from school on Wednesday afternoon. Security learned of a possible fight and saw a commotion in the parking lot.
When security officers approached the car, two teens ran away. The two who stayed were questioned and then arrested. Police are searching for the other two.
Tobias says the encounter may be related to an off-campus incident earlier this week, away from school.
   
 
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri is looking for other sources of money for education and health care after experiencing shortfalls in gambling and tobacco revenues.
State budget director Linda Luebbering says revenues from casinos, cigarettes sales and the Missouri Lottery all are coming in lower than budgeted this year. Those revenues all are earmarked for education.
Gov. Jay Nixon is proposing to transfer $44 million from general revenues to make up for the lost education funding.
Missouri also is losing about $70 million of expected revenues from a legal settlement with tobacco companies, because an arbitration panel ruled the state failed to diligently enforce tobacco laws a decade ago.
Nixon is proposing to use general revenues to finance the health care programs that were supposed to get tobacco funds.
