Shanl Toney: St. Louis Homicide No. 83; Found Dead in Apartment


St. Louis police have identified the man found dead inside his apartment yesterday morning in the 5100 block of Broadway (below) in south city.

Shanl Toney, 29, died sometime in the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Monday morning, according to police. Toney suffered a puncture wound to the back -- quite possibly the result of a bullet. A medical examination is pending.

Court records show Toney was arrested multiple times in recent years for driving with a revoked license. Last year he also pleaded guilty to charges of drug possession, unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.
