Accidental Killing on New Years Eve

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged a 23-year-old Florissant man Monday in connection with an accidental killing on New Year’s Eve.

According to Office Benjamin Granda, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, the homicide occurred around 11:25 a.m. in the 11300 block of Bristol Rock Road.

Police found the victim, 22-year-old Eric Clark, inside a vehicle parked outside his home. He’d been shot in the chest and was pronounced dead. The suspect, identified as Devin Booker, was apprehended at the scene.

Investigators determined the two men were sitting in the car comparing firearms. Clark was seated in the driver’s seat and Booker was in the rear passenger seat. Booker was playing with his loaded .45 caliber handgun by racking the slide back and forth with his finger on the trigger. After emptying the magazine from the gun, Booker pulled the trigger as the gun was pointed toward the victim. The gun fired and Clark was struck.

Booker admitted to firing the weapon, Granda said.

Booker was charged with one count of first-degree involuntary manslaughter. He remains in custody on a $25,000 bond.

Missouri man with 'Underwear Fetish' broke into house, Rummaged through laundry

A thief with a self-proclaimed "underwear fetish" is in jail in Franklin County after a teenage girl heard him rummaging through her family's home, police say.

Cody Hassler, 34, is facing felony charges of stalking and burglary as well as misdemeanor stealing.

One of Hassler's neighbors in Washington, Missouri, called police on October 9 to report a burglary. The woman told investigators she was asleep when her daughter heard footsteps in the kitchen. An unidentified man then bolted out of the house through the basement, dropping a pair of underwear in the living room as he fled.

It's not clear how detectives eventually traced the surprise encounter to Hassler, but he confessed when questioned, police say. 

"The male subject admitted that he had told himself that he 'went too far' that night and that he has an 'underwear fetish,'" police say in a statement.

Hassler had targeted his victims, previously spying on them through their bedroom windows on multiple occasions, police say. 

On the night of the burglary, he slipped inside the house through an unlocked basement door and began gathering underwear from a laundry room before the teenage daughter heard him. 

Washington is about 45 miles west of St. Louis.

Hassler was previously convicted of second-degree assault and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident after a drunken crash in 2010. His five-year sentence was suspended and he completed probation in 2014, according to court records.

He was jailed in the recent stalking and burglary case on $75,000 cash-only bond. Washington police ask anyone who thinks they might have been a victim of Hassler to call detectives at 636-390-1050.
