MO - Three people killed, one wounded in St Louis shootings, 27 March 2015
James Lacey was supposed to see his son this month for the first time in 10 years. Family members of Tammie Thurmond and her daughter, Paige Schaefer, were considering giving them another chance to move in and try to kick their addictions.
And Schaefer’s best friend had just turned 21 when an attacker killed the others and left her for dead March 27 in a crime that continues to challenge the police...
The lone survivor, the 21-year-old, called police about 2:45 p.m. to a boarding house where she had been living with Lacey in the 4400 block of Itaska Street, in the Bevo Mill neighborhood. Officers found her lying in a bed, unconscious, with a wound in the head and her cellphone beside her... In the same room, Lacey, 47, and Schaefer, 23, sat dead in their chairs, shot in their heads at close range.
A woman found in an alley in St. Louis’ Dutchtown neighborhood Friday with a gunshot wound to the head has died, police said Sunday...
Police identified the woman as Tammie Thurmond, 54, of the 4400 block of Itaska Street. She was found shot in an alley off Grace Avenue, near Meramec Street and South Grand Boulevard, on Friday afternoon.
Police say her death is apparently tied to Friday’s killing of a woman and a man, and the wounding of another woman, in a residence in the 4400 block of Itaska in Bevo Mill, about two miles away.
The son of one murder victim, who is also the brother of another murder victim, both shot to death in South St. Louis last week, is frustrated that a suspect is not yet in custody - especially since family members have told police they are pretty sure they know who pulled the trigger. 'Who expects their mother to be murdered in cold blood and left in an alley somewhere, and my sister too,' said Dan Schaefer Jr., 27...
A third person in the house, a 21-year-old member of the Schaefers` extended family, was shot in the head but survived. She was able to call 9-1-1 with information about the shooter, including his nickname.
The man is said to have had a relationship with one of the victims, and was known to them all... 'There has been some communications with the family since then that we notified the police about,' Schaefer said. 'He told my little brother `come on over here and I will take care of you too,` so this guy is a loose cannon and he is just running around.' For the family, not knowing that man`s whereabouts is terrifying.
