Sometime in the period 2003 through 2009, there was a mass murder incident in Missouri and thereabouts that involved a guy who had sought mental health assistance after a suicide attempt. My vague recollection is that he was in and out of the hospital in a matter of hours, partly because the state simply lacked the space to help him. I cannot find the details of this incident. Can anyone give me some pointers to it?
UPDATE: David W. Logsdon was the killer at the Ward Parkway Mall in 2007. Thanks to a reader who found it. While not in this article, other references that I saw at the time indicated that he checked himself in for help before this incident, and because of a bed shortage, was discharged six hours later. Now that I have a name, I have a better chance of finding the article discussing the bed shortage.
