Man Pushes Girlfriend from St. Louis Hotel Balcony and Throws Body, Charges say | Law and order
ST. LOUIS – A man in Danville, Illinois is accused of pushing his girlfriend from the seventh-floor balcony of a Holiday Inn in St. Louis and throwing her body down an alley.
Cameron Creamer, 29, was charged Monday with first degree assault and kidnapping.
Creamer’s girlfriend was found by paramedics on June 30 in an alleyway on the 1500 block of South Theresa Avenue in the city’s Gate neighborhood, police said in the charges. She had survived the fall but was found naked, unable to move and inconsistent.
She told paramedics that she had been at a Holiday Inn with her boyfriend and that he had pushed her out a window, according to charges. She also said her boyfriend threw her in a car, drove her down an alley and dumped her body.
She suffered a fractured neck, a crushed spine and several lacerations to organs “compatible with a fall from a great height”, according to the charges. A relative of the victim told police who her boyfriend was, and the woman told police that the hotel was the Holiday Inn at 5915 Wilson Avenue. The hotel is about 3 miles from where his body was left, in an alley near a St. Louis magnetic school, the Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience.
Police obtained hotel receipts confirming Creamer’s room reservation from June 29-30, hotel surveillance video showing a man providing a credit card in his name, as well as a video of him and the woman entering a hotel elevator, according to charges.
