ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The family of a bicyclist struck and killed about a year ago will make a plea for the public’s help.

Family members, along with Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, are encouraging witnesses to come forward and cooperate with police. Thursday would have been Beard’s 55th birthday.
