Already in jail, man accused of choking St. Louis County corrections officer

CLAYTON, Mo. – A 43-year-old man already in jail for robbery is facing new charges for allegedly choking a corrections officer.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Zahmeen Manuel on Tuesday with first-degree assault of a special victim.

According to the probable cause statement, the incident took place Oct. 9 at the St. Louis County Jail. Manuel is said to have approached a female guard and attempted to kill or cause serious physical harm to her wrapping his hands and arms around her neck.

Manuel was eventually restrained.

A judge issued a $500,000 cash-only bond for Manuel on this new charge.

Manuel was in jail on suspicion of robbing a Dollar General store in Berkeley back in August.

This is one of two recently reported attacks on guards at St. Louis County Jail. On Nov. 12, county prosecutors charged 19-year-old Carnell Robinson for repeatedly punching a female corrections officer who was seated at their desk.

The ranch sits on 40 acres about 25 minutes outside of Durango.

“It was very un-Aspen and un-Vail,” the home’s interior designer Julie Massucco Kleiner told Luxe. “The wife was born and raised in the Midwest and wanted to find a less glamorous vacation home that would speak to her sensibilities.”

The current owners purchased the property in 2016 for $3 million, according to La Plata County records, and built the home.

Address: 10506 County Road 250, Durango

Zillow Gone Wild features $3.4M Missouri tourist attraction Jacob’s Cave

Zillow Gone Wild features $3.4M Missouri tourist attraction Jacob’s Cave

VERSAILLES, Mo. – Zillow Gone Wild showcases a historical cave and tourist destination in central Missouri that is sure to attract avid spelunkers.

For 90 years, people have congregated just north of Lake of the Ozarks to walk through a mile-long cave system known as Jacob’s Cave.

The cave—believed to have been used by indigenous peoples before European settlement, and by troops during the American Civil War—was rediscovered in 1875 by lead and tiff miner Jacob Craycraft.

According to the historiography on JacobsCave.com, Craycraft moved to Missouri as a young boy with his father and brother from Kentucky.

As the story goes, Craycraft, now an adult, was mining one August day with two other men and a young boy. During a lunch break, they took turns throwing rocks toward what they believed to be a shallow hole. One of the larger rocks went in the hole but made an odd sound upon landing. Craycraft and the men dug around the hole and discovered an entrance to the massive cave system.

Craycraft would explore part of the cave the following day and made note of the discovery on the cave walls. “Jacob Craycraft, the man who discovered this cave, 1875 August 9th,” he wrote. Visitors can see the note on the current tour of the cave.

The cave is being sold along with a 4-bed and 2.5-bath residence, as well as the large workshed and gift shop located on the property. The sprawling 223 acres includes a large open space with well-kept dirt roads, which has been used as a gathering place for swap meets for several years.

You can see more pictures of the cave and the property by visiting the Zillow listing.
