TWO PERSONS FOUND DEAD IN EDWARDSVILLE HOME

The Madison County Sheriff’s Department is currently conducting a death investigation of two people at a home on Fox Hill Court in Edwardsville.  Monday, October 17, the sheriff’s department was contacted when the adult male and adult female, who lived at the residence, did not respond to phone calls.  Family members went to the residence and immediately called police upon entering the home.  The two persons were found deceased inside the home.  Detectives with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, Investigators from the Madison County Coroner’s Office, and Crime Scene Investigators from the Illinois State Police are conducting the investigation.  No other information will be released until a complete crime scene investigation and autopsies are completed.


AMERICAN LEGION DONATES BUILDING TO DEMOULIN MUSEUM

The DeMoulin Museum will be making a more permanent transition into their current building.  WGEL spoke with John Goldsmith who said the DeMoulin Museum has been working out of its current building since March of 2010.  American Legion Post #282, who owns the building, recently decided to donate it to the museum.  The American Legion is sad to see the building go, as they have had it since the 1930’s, but this new acquisition opens up several opportunities for the museum.  The museum will now be able to apply for several grants, renovate the space, and expand the interior, allowing for a larger collection.
