I tried mentioning this on the Joplin MO tornado thread yesterday and got FLAMED!
CLAYTON • The former supervisor of the St. Louis County morgue has pleaded guilty to a count of misdemeanor theft stemming from a police investigation into missing items from the medical examiner's office.
Donna Myers, 51, pleaded guilty last week to one count of stealing under $500 — cleaning supplies — and was sentenced to one year's probation. Two other charges were dropped pending Myers' completion of probation and community service.

and if you truly believe that the camera crew didn't want to get into the morgue to tape bodies your sadly mistaken. that is why they went there. If they just wanted to talk to the coroner they would have called his office and setup an interview!edit on 27-5-2011 by Mercenary2012 because: (no reason given)

I saw on the news that they said it could take two weeks for people to go in and identify their missing loved ones.
That would be horrible having to wait. Those people have lost everything already they deserve to know where their missing loved ones are if they are there.

Where the hell do you guys come up with this stuff? They wanted to interview the coroner. Why do you even think that even if they'd find the place they would be allowed anywhere inside to see bodies? You people should remember that if it weren't for the media you wouldn't even hear about the whole tornado in the first place.

I can't believe this. I'm going with the cops this time ? WTF is that all about ?
I am. I'm with the cops. The last thing that community needs is a bunch juornalists looking for a money shot. There not letting anyone near the morgue, because they don't want anybody learning their loved one didn't make it via CNN. I think this is a matter of respect. That is all. I don't trust the MSN more than I don't trust cops.
I wouldn't put it passed mainstream to drum up all this crap because the cops wouldn't let them near the place.
They prolly wanted a bunch of morbid pics for TPT.Bedit on 27-5-2011 by randyvs because: (no reason given)
