Evidence Recovered From Water May Still Be Used 5/26
When items are stolen and later recovered
in a pond or creek, there still may be useable evidence to be gathered
from those items. The Livingston County Sheriff's Department is
working one of those cases now. Sheriff Steve Cox says Items recovered
in early April are at the state crime lab now.
Around April 10th an investigation of a residential burglary included
a safe and guns that were taken. The Sheriffs' Deputies and Chula Fire
Department recovered items from Medicine Creek, at LIV 216, including
the safe door. Deputies later returned with the Highway Patrol's Dive
Team and recovered firearms from the creek which had been stolen from
the residence and safe. Cox says the investigation led to the recovery
of additional items and the rest of the safe.
He says the firearms and other evidence were preserved in a manner
which has produced results of latent fingerprints for examination of
items being dumped in waterways. They were sent to the State Crime Lab
and hope to have results back soon.

construction. Missouri Highway Patrol Sergeant Jake Angle says

Food Safety For Summer Cook-Outs 5/26
The Memorial Day weekend kicks off the
Summer Grilling season. When we have those cookouts food safety is not

little thought is pretty easy, but there are a few simple mistakes
that can be a health hazard. Gravely says the biggest mistake might be
<Audio: Gravely 1>
Gravely says once the food is cooked,
another danger is leaving it out too long. She suggests putting food
away within an hour of cooking. And for the prepared cold foods, she
suggests serving them on ice or better yet, from the cooler.
One of the biggest cooking mistakes when grilling is making sure the
food is fully cooked. Gravely says the poke test is not very accurate.
<Audio: Gravely 2>
For poultry, cook to an internal
temperature of 165 degrees and for ground meats, including burgers,
brats and the like, cook to 160 degrees.
If you have questions about the proper meat temperatures, call the
USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-674-6854.
