Making Headlines:

Homicide investigation: Police are looking for more information in an "active" investigation of a homicide in Kennett. Investigators say a suspect turned himself in, but officers want to hear from more witnesses.

Who won: Election results are in for the Missouri primary election. Missouri's roster of statewide elected officials will have a whole new look after November, but there's a chance the congressional delegation will be completely unchanged. CLICK HERE for a closer look. 

Search under way: Emergency responders searched the Mississippi River for a missing teen until late Tuesday night. Officials said the teen was hiking with his family in Shelby Forest when he was swept away by the water near the boat dock. The search will resume around 8 a.m. this morning.

Deadly fire: Authorities have identified the woman who died in a home fire on Tuesday, August 2 in Union County, Illinois as Lou Etta Rion, 87, of Lick Creek. We are hoping to learn more about this investigation after an autopsy is completed.
