I think it's disgusting that we prohibit felons from municipal office by state law but then can have felons run for state office...and congress... Is that the Peter Principle in action or what?

The only prohibition I'm aware of for felons in politics here in IL is at the municipal level. From county on up, I don't believe there is any restriction. But if you decide to run, you better know that your past WILL come up, and if you don't want to talk about it, you might just want to stay home.

Two dead in apparent murder-suicide in Adair Co.

6 months, 3 weeks ago from KHQA

Call came in around 1:30 a.m. Sunday reporting shots fired

The Adair County Sheriff's Office released the names of two people dead in an apparent murder-suicide early Sunday morning.

Sheriff Robert Hardwick identified the two as 33-year-old Krysten "Kadie" Campbell Johnson and her 36-year-old husband, Riley Johnson, both of Kirksville.

Hardwick said a 911 call came in around 1:30 a.m. Sunday reporting shots fired at the Campbells' home at 23534 Burk Trail just off of Highway 11 West. That is just south of Kirksville, Mo.

The sheriff's office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded.

Two other adults and the Campbells' three small children were also inside the home at the time of the incident.

Adair County Coroner Brian Noe said both were pronounced dead at the scene. Autopsies are scheduled for early this week.

Noe told KTVO it appears Riley Johnson was the shooter, killing his wife and then ending his own life with a gunshot. He also told KTVO that when law enforcement officers got into the home, they discovered Kadie Campbell Johnson's body in the garage and Riley Johnson's body was found in a hallway just off of the garage.

The Sheriff says several firearms were found at the scene and an investigation into the circumstances that led up to the fatal shootings is underway.
