ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Lab tests on the possible radiation at the old Pruitt-Igoe public housing site in north St. Louis are still pending. Dr. Lisa Martino-Taylor, Ph. D. is the author of the book, “Behind the Fog,” about the Cold War era bio-warfare experiments on the streets of St. Louis. She’s concerned the site has recently been bulldozed for development after being fenced-off and overgrown for 40 years.
“I think that they should test in that area, and the closer they can get to the buildings that were there, the better. So I agree that the area should be tested, they need to test around Pruitt-Igoe,” she says.
The city of St. Louis says the same stuff sprayed on Pruitt-Igoe was sprayed across the street–near Cass and Jefferson–where an outside company hired by the city took samples to test for radiation last week.
