A Cape Girardeau County woman is dead after an apparent homicide Thursday west of Gordonville. Cape Girardeau County Coroner John Clifton identifies her as 27-year old Melissa Luttrell. Authorities were investigating at a home near the intersection of routes F and Z. The sheriff’s office received a medical call from the home just before 4 p.m. and then received a second call for a medical assist. The Cape Girardeau County Sheriff’s Department says when they arrived, they determined Luttrell had died from a gunshot wound, and a male family member also had gunshot wounds. He was transported to a hospital, where he underwent surgery. He is expected to live. An autopsy is expected to be performed today. There is no motive known for the shooting. This is Cape Girardeau County’s first homicide of 2015. There were four homicides in the county in 2014, according to Missouri Uniform Crime Reporting data released earlier this year. All four were shootings that took place within Cape Girardeau city limits.

Three Rivers upgrades EMS equipment, OKs hosting 911 center

March 27, 2015 Local No Comments

Students interested in emergency medical services training will benefit from new equipment approved Wednesday by the Three Rivers College board. FAAC Inc. of Ann Arbor, Michigan, submitted a winning quote of $102,500 for an EMS three-screen driving simulator package. Three Rivers president Wesley Payne says a trauma mannequin was purchased from Gaumard Scientific of Miami for $57,822.66. It will be used to train EMS and nursing students in treating trauma patients. Board members also approved a lease agreement with the city of Poplar Bluff and the Butler County Emergency Management Agency relating to housing a 911 call center on the Three Rivers campus. The rent is $250 per month. Dispatchers from the Poplar Bluff Police Department will move into the 911 center as soon as the phone lines and wiring have been installed for all the necessary equipment. The dispatchers need to move because of all the leaks in the city hall roof. A five-year contract with the city of Poplar Bluff for policing and resource officer services on the campus for 70 hours a week was approved. The Poplar Bluff Police Department will have an officer on the campus from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. Three Rivers will pay the city $100,000 annually for the policing services.

March 27, 2015 Genius Award No Comments

TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

Brent Henry, 41, a Pennsylvania man who was arrested for burglary after he left the credit card he used to open a door at the scene of the crime.

Police say Henry was able to jimmy open the lock at a private garage only to have the homeowner come home and see him.

Henry ran off as the homeowner called police, who later found the card near the front door of the garage.

Police easily tracked him down and he’s now facing criminal trespass charges.

 

 

AND THEN THERE’S …..

An unidentified female mail carrier in Oklahoma City, who was caught on surveillance cameras throwing a valuable package then running a lap around her delivery truck before leaving.

Postal officials visited the package recipient’s home to apologize.

He said Amazon is offering him a 20% discount for his troubles.

No word on the fate of the mail carrier.

 

 

OR HOW ABOUT …..

Shaneka Monique Torres, 30, who fired shots at a Grand Rapids, Michigan McDonald’s drive-thru, because they forgot the bacon on her bacon cheeseburger.

Police say that Torres received a bacon cheeseburger with no bacon earlier in the day and called the store to speak to a manager.

The manager invited her back for a free bacon cheeseburger, but that one didn’t have bacon either, at which point, she pulled a gun and fired into the drive thru window.

Luckily, no one got hurt, even though the bullet traveled through the McDonald’s and out a window on the other side.

Torres was convicted this week of felony use of a firearm, and shooting at an occupied building.

She is looking at up to seven years in prison.
