Luke Meiners was a much-loved assistant counselor in St. Louis County’s government. One night in 2008, a 20-year-old “friend” of Meiners asked for a ride to his boyfriend’s house. It was a trap. Meiners wound up dead and dumped across the river. But that’s only half the story: Once the perps/lovers landed in jail, serious jailhouse intrigue ensued. Riverfront Times has the story.
