Catholic Supply Store Reopens Today

(St. Louis County) The Catholic Supply store where women were sexually assaulted and one customer was murdered last month reopened for business today.

The store, located on Manchester Road in west St. Louis County, has been closed since the crimes on November 19th.

Customer Jamie Schmidt was murdered inside the store.

Her funeral was held last week. Flowers remain outside the storefront as a memorial to Schmidt.

Some employees at nearby businesses told television station K-M-O-V that business has been slow since the crimes, but foot traffic has started to pick up again in the shopping center.

The man charged with the crimes, Thomas Bruce of Jefferson County, appeared in court today.
