Body Found

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police in the St. Louis suburb of Berkeley are investigating after a body was found in a cemetery near Lambert Airport.

The body was discovered Sunday at the Washington Park Cemetery. Authorities are still trying to determine the identity and aren’t yet saying if it is a man or woman.

The 90-year-old cemetery property has been in the news recently because of its rundown condition. In August, Berkeley city leaders cited the owner for not taking care of the cemetery.

Officials aren’t sure how long the body had been on the grounds.
