Wild Times in Cahokia: Masked Molesters, a Giant Leap of Faith and a Dead Body

Categories: Crime

Of this, we are reasonably sure: No Cahokia police officer complained to his spouse yesterday that he was bored at work. Tuesday provided just too much action, especially for those cops working the overnight shift.

Events got underway around 2 a.m. August 16 when police were called to a home for a domestic disturbance and saw the suspect speed off in a vehicle. Cahokia police gave chase along Route 3, with the suspect eventually crashing his vehicle on the Poplar Street Bridge. As the Belleville News-Democrat reports, police then watched as the suspect jumped off the bridge.

The only problem? He wasn't over the Mississippi River when he made the leap. The paper reports that he fell 100 feet from the approach span before hitting the ground. Somehow he survived and was last listed in stable condition at a hospital.

Then -- just a half hour after that incident -- police got called to a home on Oaktree Street where four masked gunmen burst into the residence and sexually assaulted two girls before stealing a Mercury Marquis (Illinois plates E172767) and fleeing the scene.

Finally another strange discovery yesterday evening just outside Cahokia city limits. Horseback riders on a trail found the body of an unidentified man. No word yet on his identity. Speaking of identity, did Cahokia police ever find that naked gunman from last week?

In other news, the Cahokia Mounds are lovely this time of year. You really should go.

Nice trash job on a historic community. The body was closer to Belleville actually. Has the RFT gone to using a racist rag like the BND for sources? The old publisher was a KKKer for god's sake and they still roll that way. An STL paper has a lot of nerve talkig about crime. Ray, you still looking for twinks dude? LOL Shorty...

But Cahokia Mounds isn't in Cahokia, it's in Collinsville!

And, it's ironic the guy survived hitting the ground from the bridge, because he probably would have died hitting the river off the PSB (not sure how many people survive bridge-jumping in the area)

Oh hell, that numb nuts had to tie it in somehow. BND reported a murder witnesses name and address in their paper several times. They are not credible since they make so many factual mistakes in their rag. Just like this "reporter" who likely grinds a BND white hooded shill.
