Who the Hell Steals Body Bags from the Coroner's Office?
The answer to that question apparently is Donna Myers, morgue supervisor for the St. Louis County Medical Examiner.
Just simple compassion. What if it gets a little out of hand? Who gives a F?

CNN actually reported on the stuff that 'they' want to be kept secret!
They are IDing the bodies with DNA and fingerprints. What does this mean?
They have all our DNA and fingerprints stored somewhere! When did they get this authority?

This isn't about News agencies trying to get into the morgues to film dead bodies. Might wanna try watching the video or reading the OP before hand. I seen this on the news last night myself.
This is about families not being able to get into the morgue to ID their dead or deceased loved ones so how can they know whether they should be searching for their loved one when they might already be dead in the morgue.
The morgue refused access for people to see their dead loved ones and still is refusing access for people to ID their loved ones so this is causing chaos and people aren't sure if their dead relatives are in the morgue or buried in the rubble somewhere.

I forgot to add the town does not have a morgue supervisor.
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.

CNN would not show bodies. They are too big and would lose too much respect for such a thing. I don't think they'd ever even consider it. It would make them NO friends. They are not some 'banged up' website.
Does the government have the RIGHT to decide to spare families the trauma of seeing their dead loved ones? They don't when there's a horrid wreck. I don't think they do.

I saw that report. CNN or any other news outlet has no business sticking their nose in the morgue matter. If pictures were available they would be filing FOIA requests or bribing some local yokel so they could put the pictures on the air for ratings. There are somethings the public has no right to know or see. Sure, the families may want to know if someone is in the morgue but in my opinion, it needs to be private affair. No good would come of the newsies pointing a camera at dead, possibly dismembered/broken bodies. Without the addition of derma wax, makeup, clothes and so forth most, again in my opinion, intact bodies only resemble the person you knew. The officers were just trying to stop any more sensationalizing than was already present.
It's called freedom of the press baby. Get used to it.
