Missouri's Growing Opiate Problem: Testimonials

A green beetle blamed for destroying tens of millions of ash trees in 25 states is advancing in the St. Louis area.

It's a warning sign at art museums around the world: "Don't touch the artwork."

But Spain's famous Prado Museum is changing that, with an exhibit where visitors are not only allowed to touch the paintings — they're encouraged to do so.

The Prado has made 3-D copies of some of the most renowned works in its collection — including those by Francisco Goya, Diego Velazquez and El Greco — to allow blind people to feel them.

It's a special exhibit for those who normally can't enjoy paintings.

Today Paul Pepper helps local folk musicians CATHY BARTON and DAVE PARA celebrate 36 years of marriage by having them do all the work! They perform "I Drew My Ship" on guitar. Happy Anniversary! May 25, 2015

The Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League have signed former University of Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted in the NFL. 

The manhunt continues for James Horn, now wanted in connection with the murder of his former girlfriend, Sandra Sutton, and her 17-year-old son. The  bodies of the woman and her son were found in her brother's home in Clinton, Missouri Thursday morning. 

Sutton's stolen car was found in Sedalia just two blocks from the house where she said Horn had kept her prisoner for months, sometimes confining her in a wooden box. Warrants had been out for Horn in connection with those crimes for about three weeks.

Clinton Police Lt. Sonny Lynch said his department had not been aware that the woman was staying in their community.

“She was advised by a couple of different victim advocates to get a protection order and to inform law enforcement of her location. That was done. But she felt as though she was safe over here staying with her family member, and from talking with the victim advocate folks, she just did not feel like she wanted to do that,” Lynch said.
