Woman reported endangered after sister's death behind bars
SPANISH LAKE, Mo. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a suburban St. Louis woman who once was considered missing after her sister was killed.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 57-year-old woman was jailed Wednesday morning in St. Louis County on a 24-hour hold. Police issued an "endangered person advisory" for her Monday after her 59-year-old sister, Brenda Brown, was found dead in the home they shared. Police said they were worried the younger sister may have been the victim of a crime or may become the victim of a crime. They also said she had medical conditions and didn't have her medicine with her.
The death of Brenda Brown initially was classified as suspicious. It later was reclassified as a homicide.
