Search is Still On For Killer

By Tony Brockmeyer (C) 2007

St. Charles police are still following leads in the murder of Robert Eldman that occurred on June 8th. Eldman, of St. Peters, was murdered in his insurance agency office on First Capitol Drive near I-70. Eldman was found shot in his office by a postal worker.

The First Capitol News was shown a business card from Detective Morissey of the St. Charles Police by a man who said Detective Morissey was interviewing customers last weekend in a St. Louis Soulard bar frequented by homosexuals. According to the customers, who are credible professionals, Detective Morissey told them he was conducting a murder investigation and showed them a photograph of a very large man and asked if they had seen him in the bar

We attempted to contact Detective Morissey but his voice mail says he will not be in the office until June 25. We do not know the significance of how this large man and a gay bar in St. Louis may be connected to the murder of Eldman. Detectives receive many tips and they have to follow up on all leads.

The Greater St. Louis Major Case Squad was called in to help with the murder investigation and extended their stay for an additional five days but have now ended their participation. They reported they were looking for a four-door car similar to a Ford Focus, light-colored or white apparently the vehicle has not been located.

Any one with information can call the St. Charles Detectives at 636-949-3320 or Crimestoppers at 636-949-3333.
