FBI seeks public help in SIU threats case

Wednesday, 01 May 2013 10:08 Published in Local News

The FBI is asking for the public's help in identifying who made threats against Southern Illinois University in Carbondale last fall.

 

   The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports that authorities say a threat was made against the school last September, a day before a bomb threat forced the late-night evacuation of a campus building. Both threats were mailed.

 

   Calling the threats "frightening," the FBI said Tuesday they were not a harmless prank even though no one was harmed. The agency says evacuations are disruptive.

 

   The FBI says the person behind the threats is likely immature and may have various grievances, been continually angry during last fall's semester "and prone to making rash, if unbelievable, statements about his complaints."

Days are numbered for Cupples building downtown

Wednesday, 01 May 2013 09:19 Published in Local News

The days are numbered for an iconic building in downtown St. Louis. City officials say the Cupples 7 building is now slated for demolition. It's the only unrenovated structure remaining from the Cupples Station complex located west of Busch Stadium. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says on his website that his administration did everything possible to save the Cupples building, but it has now been deemed a public safety threat. Slay says if there's a developer out there with the money to rehab the building, now would be the time to come forward. 

 

A petition filed by downtown property owners is calling for the shut down of the New Life Evangelistic Center.

KMOV-TV reports the City of St. Louis is reviewing the formal petition signed by 167 neighbors of the homeless shelter on Locust Street. The petition mentions problems with the NLEC such as loitering, drinking in public, public urination, noise, and harassment.

The New Life Evangelistic Center is run by the Reverend Larry Rice, who is often at odds with the city, most recently for trying to establish homeless camps in city neighborhoods.
