ST. LOUIS (AP) – The man found fatally shot in an SUV on Interstate 55 in St. Louis was the owner of a popular Irish bar.
Pat McVey, owner of Maggie O’Brien’s Restaurant & Irish Pub in downtown St. Louis, was found shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday in a Ford Explorer on the side of the southbound lanes. Homicide detectives are investigating.
The bar is just a few blocks from the Scottrade Center and is a popular gathering place, especially after Blues games.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://j.mp/2fVzIjU) that there’s a $15,000 reward for information leading to the killer’s arrest. McVey’s family and friends added $5,000 to CrimeStoppers’ usual reward for a homicide, and an anonymous donor’s contribution brings the total reward to $15,000.
