A car chase this morning that started near Belleville this (Friday) morning and ended in downtown St. Louis may be linked to a Major Case Squad murder investigation. The driver, who reportedly pulled over and exited the car with his hands up, is a suspect in the murder of a man in Edwardsville on Tuesday.

Almost 30 investigators with the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis have been working the murder case. The body of 43-year-old Scott Brown of St. Louis was found along Illinois Route 111 just after 7am Tuesday morning. If you have any information about his death or the time leading up to it, you are asked to call 618-307-1611.
