Missouri’s state-owned rest areas need to be more secure. That’s according to New Madrid County Sheriff Terry Stevens.
Stevens’ office and the Highway Patrol are investigating the shooting death of Monica Keenlance at a rest area north of Marston on Halloween 2018.
Stevens says he couldn’t believe the crime, committed in broad daylight, had not been captured by surveillance cameras he assumed would be in place.
The sheriff says he’s reached out to local lawmakers to see if anything can be done.
Illinois and Arkansas already have cameras installed at state-owned rest areas.
