St. Louis police: Crash victim's body went unnoticed
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The husband of a woman whose body was found near a St. Louis freeway two days after a car crash is accusing police of negligence.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports a utility worker last Friday found the body of 40-year-old Gretchen Roberdes of St. Peters off of an interstate highway.
That was two days after emergency responders to a crash there found the car that had struck a guardrail on a ramp. Police say they looked but found no driver. Police later said Roberdes had been tossed out of the car on the opposite side of a ramp.
Roberdes' husband, Ronnie Stubbs, says police "did a poor job" and never tried to contact him or his stepdaughter. He says he can't understand how police missed the body.
