    Four people shot to death in St. Charles, suspect in custody


    By Rachel Rice and Celeste Bott
    St Louis Post-Dispatch

    ST. CHARLES - Four people were shot to death in a home in St. Charles early Saturday and a suspect has been taken into custody following an overnight manhunt, police said Saturday morning.

    The shooting took place in the first block of Whetstone Drive, a residential area about a mile south of Interstate 70, just west of Muegge Road. A large area around the scene was closed off by police.

    St. Charles police responded just before midnight to a report of a man with a gun. They found multiple gunshot victims when they arrived on scene, police said.

    Responding officers saw a vehicle fleeing the scene, and stopped the car. The suspect fired several shots at police, who returned fire, but no officers were injured. A police car was struck several times before the suspect fled on foot, according to St. Charles police.

    The suspect then attempted to carjack a woman, stabbing her in the process, but police said her injuries were not life-threatening and she is expected to survive.

    Then began a seven-hour manhunt, culminating in police finding the suspect in a QuikTrip on First Capitol Drive, where they believe he took shelter from the cold early Saturday morning. He was taken into custody at 7:26 a.m., and later to the hospital for injuries he sustained while fleeing police. The extent or the cause of those injuries is not yet clear.

    As of 10 a.m. Saturday, no information has been released about the name of the suspect or the victims, their ages, or their relationship to one another.

    The pursuit of the suspect made for a terrifying night for neighbors, many of whom were asleep at the time of the incident and later awakened by sirens or gunfire.

    Simran Noon, a San Diego resident staying in St. Charles for the holidays, was sitting in the living room on her laptop when she suddenly saw lights and heard police sirens. Through the window, she witnessed police confronting the suspected shooter outside of her mother's house on Muegge Road.

    After shooting at police, Noon said she saw the suspect run into a nearby wooded area. Hearing the gunfire, she and her husband turned off all the lights as the search began and tactical teams began arriving on scene, she told the Post-Dispatch.

    When she tried to open the window to let police know where she saw him run, officers yelled for her to stay inside and lock all doors and windows, relaying the same to other neighbors who later came outside to see what was going on, she said.

    "They were telling people to go into interior rooms and basements. ... They were shining scopes and lights at our deck. They had guns pointed over here," Noon said. "It was like something out of a movie."

    Noon's mother lives within walking distance of where the shooting occurred, she said.

    "I grew up in St. Charles. This used to be a very safe place. I wasn't expecting to see what I saw," Noon said.

    Murder charges filed against man accused of killing 4 in St. Charles overnight

    By Michael Ritter and Tyler Klaus
    KMOV News

    ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- St. Charles City police have filed charges against a man in connection with an overnight quadruple homicide on Whetstone Drive.

    Authorities have charged 46-year-old Richard Emery with a total of 15 charges including four counts of first-degree murder Saturday.

    Around midnight, police were called to the scene of a shooting in the 100 block of Whetstone Saturday. Upon arrival, officers said they saw man leave the home and get into a white Chevrolet Silverado running in the driveway.

    After attempting a traffic stop, police said Emery allegedly fired shots at the responding officers before fleeing on foot.

    "The officer had his firearm up, pointed at the suspect, giving him verbal commands to surrender," said Lt. Wilkinson of the St. Charles Police Department. "He took gunfire from the suspect, the officer returned fire and retreated to the back of his vehicle to get better cover from the rounds that were coming towards him."

    The officer, who has 16 years of experience on the St. Charles Police Force, and his K-9 unit were uninjured.

    St. Charles police confirmed that three people were shot and killed at the home on Whetstone, and a fourth victim later died at the hospital from gunshot wounds sustained at the home. Zoe J. Kasten, 8, Jonathan Kasten, 10, and Jane Moeckel, 61, have been identified by police as the victims. A fourth victim, a 39-year-old woman, has not yet been positively identified.

    Press Conference on Quadruple Slaying

    By Celeste Bott
    stltoday.com

    Officers responding to the scene saw a white Chevy Silverado running in the driveway. Saw the suspect exit the subdivision. Within minutes other officers identified the vehicle and pulled it over.

    Suspect refused to exit the vehicle and opened fire on the officers. Bullets pierced a police car but no officers hurt. The suspect took off into wooded area.

    From there the suspect attempted to carjack a woman and stabbed her at least seven times. He couldn’t start the car. The woman is in critical condition but going to okay.

    Manhunt was massive. Suspect’s name is Richard Emery, who was eventually found in a QuikTrip bathroom suffering from gunshot wounds. He refused to provide any statements.

    Upon entering the residence the body of a 39 year old female was found in the master bedroom. She has massive injuries. In the downstairs bedroom, officers saw the doorway had been forced open and found a dead 61 yo female, 8 yo girl and 10 yo boy.

    Police believe Emery lived in the home and was the boyfriend of the 39 year old woman, who has not yet been identified. The children are her children, the 61 year old woman is her mother.

    Emery has been charged with murder in the first degree, armed criminal action, assault in the first degree, attempted robbery in the first degree. 15 counts pending.

    “What can possess someone to take the life of a child is beyond me,” says St. Charles prosecutor Tim Lohmar. Emphasizes the community is safe. Notes several violent crimes in St. Charles in recent months, but they are unrelated domestic violence cases.

    This family has lived in the home for just about a year, police have never been called to the home in that time.

    Law enforcement believes the 61 year old grandmother made the “chilling” 911 call.

    An employee of the QuikTrip notified police when Emery came in.

    Officers will interview friends, coworkers, family and associates to identify a motive, but nothing known yet.

    After Emery was arrested and mirandized, he was “matter of fact” with officers, Lohmar says.

    Law enforcement has recovered the weapons used to shoot the victims and stab the woman who he attempted to carjack.

    Carjacking happened about a quarter mile from where the shooting happened on a residential neighborhood street.

    The shooting scene was very difficult to cope with, officers said.

    Richard Emery also goes by Darren Emery. He’s being treated for injuries in the neck and in his hip.

    Each one of the charges he faces carries 30 years to life in prison. Lohmar says it looks and smells like a death penalty case.

    Lohmar: “Just imagine what it looks like to have gunshot wounds and four people dead on the scene. It was a gruesome, gruesome scene.” Officers have to see this and go home to their families after, he says.

    Law enforcement believes the grandmother barricaded herself in a downstairs room with the kids, and the shooter forced himself inside.

    MISSOURI MASSACRE: 'Looks and smells like a death penalty case'

    By Brad Hunter
    Alberta Daily Herald Tribune

    The Missouri man accused of executing his girlfriend, two young children and her mother will likely face a date with the executioner if convicted.

    Richard Darren Emery, of St. Charles, is facing 15 charges, including first-degree murder in the Friday massacre.

    Police say when they arrived, officers got into a gun battle with Emery — who goes by his middle name Darren — who then fled but was nabbed hours later soaked in blood.

    According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, cops are still investigating what triggered the massacre.

    Police identified the victims as Kate Kasten, 39, Zoe Kasten, 8, Jonathan Kasten, 10, and Jane Moeckel, 61.

    Kate Kasten was a widow who had cared for her husband for six years as he battled cancer. He died in April 2017.

    She had begun a new relationship with Emery earlier in 2018.

    “It’s beyond belief,” Frederick Moeckel, Kate Kasten’s father, told the Post-Dispatch.

    He said his grandchildren “were very close. Only two years apart. They lost their father less than two years ago. He was an incredible man, and Katie was an incredible daughter. Jane was a wonderful person also.”

    One family friend who attended a candlelight memorial for the family on Sunday night said she hopes Emery gets the needle.

    “I do believe in the death penalty,” Jamie Cartwright told a reporter, “and hope that is the way they are going.”

    Widowed woman, 2 kids, mom allegedly killed by new boyfriend

    St. Charles Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar agreed, saying, “it looks and smells like a death penalty case.”

    Moeckel said there were no apparent signs of trouble in his daughter’s relationship with Emery.

    But detectives say Emery appeared emotionless after he was pinched and matter-of-fact about the heartache he had unleashed.

    Cops say he refused to discuss a motive for the massacre.

    “There was never an indication that something like this could happen,” Moeckel said. “The kids loved him. The big question is what the heck happened?”

    Dad of woman killed with young daughters, mom says boyfriend seemed nice

    The father of a Missouri woman killed with her mother and two young children said the man charged in the senseless murders never showed any signs of erupting – but his booking photo shows someone with “no soul.”

    Richard Darren Emery, 46, of St. Charles, allegedly gunned down his family in a “gruesome, gruesome scene” as Jane Moeckel, 61, frantically called 911 while barricaded in a downstairs room with her two grandchildren, 10-year-old Jonathan and 8-year-old Zoe, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Moeckel, who called police as gunshots rang out in the background, was later found dead, along with the children, as well as their mother, Kate Kasten, 39, who was found shot in a master bedroom and later died at a hospital.

    Emery — who had been dating Kasten for at least a year — was arrested after a 7-hour manhunt and was charged Saturday with 15 counts, including first-degree murder, first-degree assault and attempted robbery. St. Charles County Prosecutor told reporters at a news conference that the quadruple killing “looks and smells like a death penalty case,” although a motive for the attack remains unclear.

    “What can possess someone to take the life of a child is beyond me,” Lohmar said Saturday.

    That sentiment was echoed by Kasten’s father, Rick Moeckel, who told NBC News in an emotional interview that he thought he knew the man who had been dating his daughter after her 43-year-old husband, Kory Kasten, lost a six-year battle with cancer in 2017.

    “She had been dating him for a year, a year and a half,” Moeckel said. “I thought I knew him well. [But] the booking picture shows a Darren Emery that I did not know. I looked at that picture and it just looks like there’s no soul there. That’s not him. You just can’t fathom or understand what the heck went wrong in his brain that caused this.”

    Moeckel said Emery met his daughter at a concert shortly after her husband’s death and seemingly made her happy.

    “He filled a need that helped her get through things, and there was never any indication that something like this would happen,” Moeckel said. “He was maybe a little high-strung, but he never raised his voice. I never saw him get mad.”

    Emery, who works as a truck driver, would regularly refer to Kasten as the “love of his life,” Moeckel said. The couple had been living together in St. Charles, a suburb of St. Louis, along with Kasten’s children and her mother – who recently had hip surgery and planned to stay with them as she recovered.

    Moeckel said he routinely spent time at the couple’s home, where he found Emery to be friendly but occasionally insecure, especially during one visit a few days before Christmas, he told NBC News.

    “He was deep-frying a turkey, and he loved people to tell him how great he was doing,” Moeckel said. “He needs people to tell him that you’re a good guy.”

    Moeckel said roughly 400 people attended a vigil for his daughter, grandchildren and ex-wife, a testament to what they meant to the community.

    “She was probably the most vibrant, outgoing person, along with her kids,” he told NBC News. “They have hundreds of friends.

    Moeckel’s grandchildren, meanwhile, were apparently adjusting to life after the death of their father as best they could and showing signs of accepting Emery, he said.

    “I’m sure it was difficult, but he seemed to do everything he could to make life good for them,” he said.

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that funeral services for Kasten, her two children and Moeckel will start this weekend, beginning with visitation Sunday at Collier’s Funeral Home in St. Ann to be followed by a memorial service early Monday.

    An online fundraiser established to help offset funeral costs had generated more than $19,000 as of Wednesday.

    “Kate had a huge personality and was always smiling even in the face of adversity,” the website reads. “Her life recently was not easy as she lost her husband, the love of her life, to cancer in the spring on 2017. I remember talking with her just before she lost him. Kate told me that Kory didn’t want her to be sad when he passed, he wanted her to live and love because life is too short to do anything else.”

    Motive Sought in Killing of 4 in St. Charles

    Family members of victims caught by surprise

    BY KEVIN KILLEEN
    KMOX

    ST. CHARLES, MO -- Investigators are still trying to find out why a St. Charles man allegedly went on a killing spree, taking the lives of his girlfriend, her two children and her mother.

    Richard Darren Emery, 46, remains behind bars while detectives seek a motive in Friday night's killing spree at a home where Emery lived with his girlfriend and her family on Whetstone Drive.

    "If there ever was a situation that just popped up out of the blue and just exploded to the surprise of everyone in the family, I think this would be one of those," said St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar.

    Lohmar says detectives are interviewing friends and family of the victims, but have yet to learn what led to the violence.

    Emery is charged with fifteen crimes including the four murders, a stabbing during an attempted carjacking and shooting at police.

    "We're obviously going to let the evidence unfold, because it's still quite early in terms of the investigation," Lohmar said, "but once we get that in... this certainly looks like it could be a death penalty case."

    St. Charles man will face death penalty in family murder trial

    By Kevin S. Held
    Fox 2 Now News

    ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – A man accused of killing his girlfriend, her two children, and the children’s grandmother will face the death penalty in the upcoming trial, the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney said Monday.

    Prosecutor Timothy Lohmar said a grand jury indicted Richard Darren Emery last Friday for the December 2018 killings.

    Emery is accused of shooting and killing 39-year-old Kate Kasten, 8-year-old Zoe and 10-year-old Jonathan Kasten, and 61-year-old Jane Moeckel, Kate’s mother.

    The murders took place at Kasten’s home in the 100 block of Whetstone Drive. Police found the victims inside the home. Three of them were dead at the scene. One of the victims was taken to a hospital where she later died.

    Emery was arrested the following day after attempting to carjacking a woman. He also engaged in a brief shootout with police. Emery was located inside a gas station bathroom, wounded and covered in blood.
