  • One arrest has been made in connection with a triple homicide that occurred near Stoutland over the weekend.
    Camden County Sheriff's officials have arrested Morris A. McCabe, 51, in connection with the murders of Donald E. Young, 45, Donald Q. Myers, 53, and Sally A. Amos, 46, all of Stoutland.
    Morris was arrested Saturday night in Lebanon and is currently being held in the Laclede County Jail. No motive has been released.
    McCabe has been charged with three counts of 1st Degree Murder and 3 counts of Armed Criminal Action. No bond is being allowed.
    Sheriff's deputies were called to a residence on State Route T Friday morning. According to the Sheriff's Office, a friend had stopped by the residence and knocked on the door only to receive no answer. The friend looked through a window and saw a subject “slumped over the table.” The friend immediately called police.
    The aforementioned persons were found deceased in the residence.
    Autopsies were performed on the bodies Saturday in Springfield. Those results are still pending.
    The Sheriff's Office said there is no evidence linking this homicide to others that have occurred in Camden County, and it appears the incident was not drug-related.
    Agencies assisting Camden County Sheriff’s Office in this investigation are as follows: The Missouri State Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control, the Missouri State Water Patrol, the Laclede County Sheriff’s Office, the Lebanon Police Department, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office and the Laclede County Prosecutor’s Office.
