Two months after the shocking suicide death of Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich, Governor Jay Nixon has finally appointed his replacement. Boone County Treasurer Nicole Galloway will serve the three and a half years remaining of Tom Schweich’s term. A new report is released on his death, revealing that the late auditor had talked about suicide for years.

This week marks the one year anniversary of the shooting deaths at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom.
