Police Blotter 6/4/14

shoeless, wearing shorts and carrying a brown bag. The person
who notified police reported that Woody said “God owed him a
woman,” and that “she is in Columbia.” Local agencies were
alerted via the Illinois State Police Emergency Radio Network due
to his prior hostility toward police. Around 4 p.m., police said
Woody had been located in a wooded area off I-255 near the soccer
fields. He was transported by ambulance to St. Anthony’s Medical
Center in St. Louis for evaluation.
