NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -- Emergency crews have recovered two people's bodies from Maline Creek Friday after an incident involving a stolen vehicle.
Police say two 18-year-old men stole a vehicle. The owners of the stolen vehicle got into another vehicle and chased the suspects.
Both cars ended up at Bellefontaine and St. Cyr Roads where the four got into an argument.
Police were called to the scene and when they arrived, the two suspects jumped off a steep ledge into Maline Creek.
The two never resurfaced from the water and search and rescue crews recovered their bodies.
Two less car thieves in the world.
Yep, no waste of taxpayers money.
Was the car insured?
The rescue and recovery was a trivial cost though. Far less than a trial and the two being housed,fed, and cared for by the tax slave citizen.
I forget the term but something like “natural selection” comes to mind LOL
My guess is they were goot kids. Wouldn’t hurt nobody. Turning their lives around. Going start junior college. Etc.
He drowned while he was running? Must of been raining hard and he was prolly looking up a lot, yea?
As someone on FR has said before, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.” It’d be interesting to know the depth of the water where they went in. If it’s shallow and they dove; curtains! If they jumped; broken legs, backs, etc; curtains. Turned out to be an abrupt end to a crime spree maybe just getting started.
Why, if you can’t swim, would you jump into the water.
Let me guess, the car thieves were black. Blacks have a higher rate of drowning than other groups because even when they don’t know how to swim they’ll show off by jumping into the deep end of polls or into lakes or rivers. Other people who don’t swim are generally smart enough to know that they might drown.
That was a brilliant plan to jump in that River. They probably suspected that the cops weren’t going to follow. It looks like they were correct and escaped prosecution.
You read my mind.
Down to me Davey Jones locker mate! Aaarrrgghh!
I imagine the first one jumped off thinking he would get away as his friend would stay put and get busted. His friend thought hey what a great idea and jumped in the river too. They’re planning was a little short-sighted as it sounds like the river was too dangerous to be swimming
Or could be stuck in mud under water.
They should have stole a boat and jumped on land.
Looks like the DinDu Nuffin nation just lost 2 of their finest and brightest representatives.......
I like happy endings.
