(KMOV.com) – Many Kinloch residents told News 4 they did not know their police chief had died almost two weeks ago.
News 4 has learned Chief Adrian Roberts, who had been the town’s police chief for nearly one year, died of cancer almost two weeks ago. However, some residents were not aware of that he had died when News 4 asked them about his passing.
“I mean yes,” said Kinloch Mayor Darren Small said when asked if the city attempted to inform people. “I don’t see why if you were at the funeral, there were a lot of people there. So I don’t understand why someone said that.”
Small said it could take several months for the department to find a replacement. Small told News 4 a police captain is in charge until a new chief is hired.
