The St. Louis Police Department is investigating how a photo of the body of Carlos Boles ended up on the Internet. Boles, 35, shot and killed a U.S. Marshal who was trying to arrest him. Boles was also killed in the shootout.
St. Louis police chief Dan Isom is apologizing for a leaked photo from a south St. Louis crime scene that shows the body of 35-year-old Carlos Boles.
"It's completely inappropriate for that to have occurred," Isom said after today's meeting of the Board of Police Commissioners. "And we apologize certainly in advance if it's anything that our officers have done. As soon as we learned about it, we started an internal investigation."
After some budget restructuring by chief Dan Isom, the St. Louis Police Department will not have to lay off any police officers, the City of St. Louis announced today via a press release from the mayor's office.
