    MO - Four people slain in Bonne Terre killing spree, 30 Nov 2010

    Murder-suicide in Bonne Terre might have a fifth victim

    Bonne Terre, Mo. (KSDK) -- A fifth person has been found dead in connection to Tuesday's triple-murder and suicide in Bonne Terre, according to St. Francois County Coroner Jim Coplin.

    The coroner said the latest victim was a friend or acquaintance of at least one of the Bonne Terre victims.

    The Washington County Sheriff said they received information from St. Francois County Sheriff's Department that there may be a body at an abandoned farm off Doc Wallen Road around 7:30 a.m. They went there and found Ericka Wade's body.

    Snipped from original story
    BONNE TERRE, Mo. A gunman opened fire at an apartment complex Tuesday, killing three people but leaving two children unharmed before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.

    Bonne Terre Police Chief Doug Calvert said he found a woman, 37, and her boyfriend, 32, dead inside a duplex at Boulder Creek Apartments in Bonne Terre, about 50 miles southwest of St. Louis in St. Francois County. He also found a 3-year-old boy who didn't appear to be harmed.

    "I grabbed the child in my arms and handed him off to officers to drive to safety," Calvert said.

    Outside the duplex, Calvert found another woman shot in a sport utility vehicle. He said she appeared to have been trying to protect a second young child who was in the vehicle. The 18-month-old boy was taken to safety while the woman, 19, was rushed to a hospital, where she died, he said.

    Calvert said he saw a man running away from the duplex toward a highway, but as police approached, the 25-year-old man shot himself in nearby woods.

    Amanda Snider said her step-sister, Danielle Bement, had just ended her relationship with 25-year-old Nathan Fortner. And as she explains, it was not the first time Danielle tried ending things, but sadly it was the last.

    "She was a great mom, she just got her first job, and Nathan's always been crazy," said Snider.

    Fortner, 25, has a number of criminal charges and convictions in his past, including burglary and assault.

    Fortner was also facing a rape charge. That case was out of Bismarck, Missouri and did not make it to trial.

    Police tell News 4 that one of the victims found on Tuesday was Danielle Bement. Bement had a child with Fortner.

    On November 29, Bement reported a sexual assault involving Fornter to police. That case was still under investigation.

    According to the Missouri Department of Corrections, Fortner was serving five years probation for burglary.

    A pity they don't think to shoot themselves before they kill four other people.

    The body of a young Bismarck woman who hadn’t been seen since Monday night was discovered Tuesday night in Washington County. It’s possible this death is linked to the murder-suicide in Bonne Terre Tuesday morning, according to the Daily Journal newspaper in nearby Park Hills.
    Family members and friends hadn’t seen 19-year-old Ericka Wade since late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

    well... it seems this possible fifth victim WAS from Bismarck (where other pending rape charge was)

    I hope everybody else in this little circle is accounted for. One of those "wouldn't surprise me if there were more victims out there" things.

    O/T It was interesting to find that a prison was built there in 2003 and this is where the death row inmates are executed.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
