A women reported missing after leaving her home following a domestic argument was found dead in the back seat of a Breckenridge Hills (Mo.) Police unmarked Chevrolet Caprice.

Leslie Wehmer, 41, had been reported missing Saturday. A traffic officer returning to work Monday opened the rear door of the black police vehicle and discovered Wehmer's decomposing body. She was last seen Thursday night.

The vehicle had not been driven since July 4 because the officer was in training, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Wehmer's boyfriend, Dave Childs told the Post-Dispatch they were arguing because of her alcohol-induced hallucinations. She had suffered from a couple of alcohol-related seizures earlier in the week.

Why wasn't the car locked?

EODK9Trainer, damn good question. And that pic looks like the back door to a bar if I'm not mistaken. Many questions, no answers. Blues, Stay Safe.

Well, it looks as much like the back door of a bar or a sewing notions store. What superhuman insight leads you to assume this is the back of a bar?

Why do we even assume that this is the car in question and not a stock photo? Nothing like jumping to conclusions from an internet story.

Just so you know... I worked at that PD. It IS the back of the station. All of those parking spots are for other PD cars. Behind the camera is a large apartment complex too. Good ole' Section 8 too. It's an old small industrial building. It IS the car in question too. I have NO IDEA why that vehicle wasn't secured. "Lucy... You got some Splain' to do!" I know the Chief and he is NOT happy.

I never believed it was a bar but maybe an old shoppng center. Looks like we have confirmation from someone in the know.

@Czar James, why in the world would you rat out Lucy? I assume from your post that Lucy is the traffic officer who left her door unlocked ;-). Too much Monday morning quarterbacking going on here guys. We have all made a mistake and overlooked locking a car door. It and **it happens. That is some pretty crappy luck having a heavily intoxicated and hallucinating person get in your car and die. Wite it up, pay the bill, and move on. Just the cost of doing business here.

The Lucy comment was in reference to the "I love Lucy" show, I believe that is something Ricky Ricardo said to his wife. Don't think that officer was ratting anyone out, but I could be wrong.

notthatold, do you not recognize humor and sarcasm when you see it? FYI, a smiley face after a comment is a dead giveaway. Lt Dan knew perfectly well who Lucy and Ricky are I'm sure.

This car screams "unmarked police car!"
