    Leave a Comment

    Storms sirens wailed throughout the afternoon and early evening all across mid Missouri Wednesday. The clouds and light show were impressive, but there are few reports of damage or power outages from the several lines of storms that passed through the area. The heaviest damage appears to be just north of Sedalia…where Highway 65 was closed for several hours overnight so power crews could put lines back up over the highway. Emergency officials also report several trees down and out buildings damaged in Sedalia and northern Pettis County is the first wave of storms which passed through the area about 4 oh-clock yesterday afternoon. More storms with heavy rain are predicted for later today.

  3. jcmo killer goes before high court

    A Jefferson City man sentenced to die for murdering a woman in 2009 is arguing police violated his rights by tracking his location through his cellphone.

    The man will appeal the case before the Missouri Supreme Court on Thursday.

    David Hosier is set to be executed for killing a woman with whom he had a relationship while she was separated from her husband, who was also shot to death.

    Angela and Rodney Gilpin were found dead in September 2009 at Angela’s Jefferson City apartment. Prosecutors said Angela Gilpin had an affair with 58-year-old Hosier while separated from her husband, but the Gilpins were trying to reconcile.

    Hosier is arguing against the sentence and says police committed an unreasonable search and seizure when they tracked his cell phone before arresting him.

  4. DID A FERGUSON GRAND JUROR ‘TWEET’ WAY TOO MUCH?

    Leave a Comment

    Someone on the grand jury hearing evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown might have been talking about the case to friends.
    The St. Louis County prosecutor’s office confirms to the Washington Post that it is investigating the possibility, after a Tweet appeared Wednesday morning from a woman claiming to know one of the members of the grand jury.
    “There isn’t enough at this point to warrant an arrest,” the woman with the Twitter handle @thesusannichols typed.
    That person later deleted that twitter account but some users saved screenshots of the Tweet.
    The members of that jury are not supposed to discuss the case outside of its proceedings, while it hears evidence and considers whether any charge should be filed against Darren Wilson, the officer that fatally shot Brown on August 9. If there has been a breach, the prosecutor’s office could have to start over with a new group.

    The Kansas City Royals had waited 29 years to reach the postseason. They weren’t going down without a fight.

    Salvador Perez singled down the left-field line with two outs in the 12th inning, allowing Christian Colon to score from second base and giving the long-suffering Royals a 9-8 victory over the Oakland Athletics in a wild AL wild-card game Tuesday night.

    Quite a start to October baseball – even if this one appeared to be over in September with plenty of time to spare.

    The A’s raced out to a 7-3 lead by the sixth inning, but the Royals countered with three runs in the eighth. Nori Aoki’s sacrifice fly off Sean Doolittle in the ninth forced extra innings.

    More details on a shooting near a Jefferson City day care. A man is in custody, but police are looking for more, after several shots fired on Elizabeth Street just south of Washington Park last (tue) night. Witnesses say a fight started there a little before 8:00, leading up to the shooting about an hour later. Several nearby apartments have bullet holes in them, and one man is recovering in the hospital after he was shot in the leg. Authorities have taken 20-year-old Nathan Tilson from Saint Louis into custody. Investigators haven’t said he’s the shooter, but they think Tilson may be connected to it. The hunt continues for more suspects.
