Billboard sitter comes down after near murder-free week
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man sitting atop a St. Louis billboard has come down, even though the city never made it a full week without a homicide.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 50-year-old Daniel "Boone" Fuller vowed last month that he would stay on the billboard until St. Louis went a week without a killing.
He ended the vigil Sunday even though that full week never quite happened. The city was a few hours from a murder-free week Sunday morning, when two killings occurred.
Fuller says he made his point and isn't going to quibble over a few hours.
