Still no ID of body found in river 2 months ago
<![CDATA[HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) -- More than two months after a woman's body was found along the banks of the Mississippi River near the northeast Missouri town of Hannibal, her identity remains a mystery. Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn told the Hannibal Courier-Post that police are no closer to identifying the woman than they were when the body was found in September. Shinn believes the woman was not from the Hannibal area. He says one possibility is that she was in the country illegally. There was some evidence that she toured the Mark Twain Cave two days before the body was found. The cave is south of Hannibal, not far from where the body was discovered. ------ Information from: Hannibal Courier-Post, http://www.hannibal.net

2 Hannibal men charged in convenience store death
<![CDATA[HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) -- Two Hannibal men face second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of a 61-year-old convenience store clerk. The Hannibal Courier-Post (bit.ly/18PV052 ) reports that 22-year-old Gary James Wiltermood III and 30-year-old Michael Alan Studer are accused of killing Adrienne Arnett during a Tuesday morning robbery. The pair remained in the Marion County Jail Wednesday afternoon on $500,000 cash bonds. No attorneys were listed on online court records. Hannibal Police Chief Lyndell Davis says Studer, the alleged shooter, was wearing camouflage and had his face covered in a robbery that netted the two suspects cigarettes and lottery tickets. Arnett was working alone at the time on the overnight shift. ------ Information from: Hannibal Courier-Post, http://www.hannibal.net
