St. Louis Police say they have arrested the people responsible for a series of robberies and shootings earlier this week.
Officers say a 32-year-old man and 28-year-old woman are responsible for three robberies on Monday night. The first happened just after 8 PM, when the pair allegedly shot a victim. About an hour later, police say the couple robbed and shot a victim. And just 10 minutes later and just blocks away, the pair robbed another person.
The suspects were captured after police released a photo of the woman using a debit card that was taken from one of the victims.
Joe Edwards, the man many say is behind the revitalization of the Delmar Loop, was recognized for his work.
The Landmark Association honored Edwards with a lifetime achievement award. The group is citing his preservation and rehabilitation work on the Loop. Edwards owns Blueberry Hill and is responsible for bringing the Walk of Fame, Pageant, and Moonrise Hotel to the area. He also rehabbed a dozen buildings, filled them with boutique retailers, and restored the Tivoli Theater.
Edwards received the award September 12.
BUCKHORN, Mo. (AP) - A south-central Missouri man who died after falling into a sinkhole was a Marine from Fort Leonard Wood who lived in a rural area near the fort.
Pulaski County authorities say 31-year-old Curtis Powelson died after he fell into the sinkhole Monday evening in the backyard of his home near Buckhorn. He was searching for a deer that he shot when he disappeared. Emergency personnel and neighbors spent hours looking for Powelson before discovering his body early Tuesday in the sinkhole, which was an estimated 70 feet deep.
Sheriff Ron Long told KSPR that the sinkhole was covered by foliage and debris, and some firefighters almost fell into it because it was so hard to see. Several people had to rappel into the sinkhole to recover Powelson's body.
