Police Say Man Was Fatally Shot Before Fire At U-City Home

University City, MO  (KTRS)  Investigators say a man found dead inside his fire-damaged University City home had been shot to death.

Firefighters who responded to the blaze early Sunday morning on Julian Avenue discovered the body of 33-year-old Jeremy Smith in a bedroom, along with what police believe to be a small amount of narcotics. Police said in a statement that Smith had been shot in the head, though they did not specify whether they’re probing the matter as a possible suicide or a homicide.

Investigators say Smith had lived there for about three years.  His dog also was found dead in the home, apparently from the fire.
