The probable cause statement reads: I am conducting an investigation into the discovery of a body located in the area of 10100 Bon Oak. The investigation allowed me to discover the body was that of Richard Lilie. After discovering the victim’s pedigree information, I contacted St. Louis County Cab, the place of his employment. St. Louis County Cab was able to provide details of the call specifically the location of the cab and the address of the last pickup. Assisting officers responded to the location of the cab and observed the Defendant going through items in the trunk. The Defendant was detained as a result. The investigation led me to the address of the last call in the 700 block of Pebble. That was listed as the address for Antouine Redmon. A subsequent search of that area was conducted and a bag containing bloody clothes and bloody gloves was located next door to the Defendant’s home. Those items were tested and DNA matching to the victim was found on the outside and on the inside of the bloody gloves. DNA matching to the Defendant was found on the inside of the gloves. The Defendant was arrested and interviewed as a result. During the interview, the Defendant admitted he attempted to rob the victim and that the victim was killed as a result.
