ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – It was four years ago this week, June 2, 2008, that Tony LaChance was murdered on Hoffmeister Avenue in south St. Louis county.  The description of what happened is chilling. 

Police say a Ford Explorer pulled up to the young man.  The suspect, a thin man with a medium build, wearing a hoody and baggy pants got out.  They say he walked to LaChance and shot him twice.  He then started back for the car, but turned around.  He walked back and shot LaChance again.  He then gets back in the truck and left. 

Four years later, that killer has not been found.
