As one detectiv told me, they believe they had this one wrapped up fairly quickly.
One clue after another seemed to lead them to their suspect in this case in a relatively short period of time. And then on Thursday the gruesome search for the victim's head ended with the discovery in the Meramec River.
Chalk it all up to the swift work of the Major Case Squad. This team of detectives swarmed in on this case and seemingly covered every base. Many of the detectives worked around the clock over the last few days.
This was a horrible story from the start that only got worse as more details were revealed. Details that unfortunately the victim's family may have to hear again if there is a trial.
