The widow of a St. Louis County officer is paying her respects to Officer Michael Langsdorf. Elizabeth Tucker’s former husband, Blake Snyder was shot while responding to a disturbance call in south St. Louis County on October 6, 2016. The two had a child together. She has since remarried.

“We spent the morning making a sign for Ofc. Langsdorf’s car memorial. I told Malachi about how another Ofc. had joined his daddy in Heaven – Chi requested that Mike tell his daddy he loved him. 💔 Our hearts are hurting for he and his family. Praying for peace and strength during this difficult week💔😢❤” – Elizabeth Tucker writes.️

Trenton Forester was convicted of first-degree murder for the shooting of Blake Snyder earlier this year. He is serving a sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole.

The funeral for a Missouri police officer killed in the line of duty will be Monday in St. Louis.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
