The article states: "The victim was transported to St. Anthony's Medical Center, where he suffered severe facial trauma." Does this mean the victim was harmed at the hospital? The wording of the news item certainly conveys that distinct impression. More likely, better news writing and editing of the article is needed.

It was a beautiful, moving evening..P.A.s from Lincoln County, Wentzville,,,Could have been a good, positive story for you..I told you about this! Your bad you didnt go & report on our movement!

People are frequently taken to St. Anthony's where there is a Dr. to pronounce them deceased. Where they are pronounced is the key, not necessarily where they really passed, such as at home.
