True indeed! , according to a story posted on March 30 on the
website of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
< 
http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/ad567e00-5b13-11e0-8ed4-00127992bc8b.html> 
.

That web page has a link to a 1999 article on the discovery of the body:
< http://www.stltoday.com/news/article_bcc02074-5b1a-11e0-b199-0017a4a78c22.html > .

An officer with the local Major Case Squad unit is quoted there. I quote
from the 1999 story:

<< "We cannot find any motive for his death, " he said.
"We're not absolutely sure that this is a homicide." >> .
