The founder of City Museum and Turtle Park was found dead after aconstruction accident occurred on the site of his most recent project.
The 61-year-old man was killed in Cementland, an old cement factory that the man was looking to turn into a local attraction. The famed sculptor has been working on Cementland, located in north St. Louis, for almost 10 years.
The man was working at the site when the bulldozer he was riding in rolled over. He was later found by a co-worker who immediately called for help. Several agencies will be investigating the fatal accident.
Our deepest thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.
