Chris, I want to express my gratitude. A horrifying murder took place early this morning in the southern part of St. Louis.
This incident occurred at approximately 02:30 AM in an alley on Oregon Avenue, near Wyoming Street in the Benton Park, West neighborhood. The victim’s body was discovered in a burned state. Our partners from the Fire Department Fire Investigation Unit, Bomb and Arson Unit, and Homicide Units immediately responded on behalf of the Metropolitan Police Department. Investigators have stated that an autopsy will be conducted to determine whether the man died as a result of the fire or another cause..
