I have been unable to verify this. I think you may not have any basis in fact for this post. As far as Mr. Gerstner goes, he didn't even in Arnold, he lived in Pevely according to his child's mother.

According to news reports, Mr. Gerstner (the Steak 'N Shake victim) lived in Arnold but his daughter lives in Pevely with her mother.

However, the incident I was questioning was an article I read on STLTODAY.com (today). There was a 41 year-old man who was shot and killed in Arnold (Meramec Valley Apartments). The website stated that the victim's name had not yet been released, pending notification of relatives.

Thanks for the info as I hadn't heard about this.
I also just recently checked the sexual offender list from Hillsboro and learned that there is one person on the list from Bayshore and about 7 on the list with addresses on Airglades which I imagine is the apartments across from Bayshore.

There was an article in the Post yesterday I believe giving the gentlemans name and it also stated that in a day or two he would have turned 42.

According to ArnoldBuzz the gentlemans name was Donald Leftridge and he was to celebrate his 42 birthday in 3 days.

Not sure about family.
