DCFS joins investigation into boy's death

The Quincy Police Department is conducting a joint investigation with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services in an attempt to figure out what led to the drowning death of an 18-month Quincy boy Wednesday.

For the second time in less than a week, a Camp Point man accused of killing a bicyclist in a hit-and-run crash last year failed to appear for a court appearance. Colton J. Walker, 22, was not at a status hearing Thursday afternoon.

With two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, Evan Ehrhardt ripped a bases-clearing triple to center field to give Quincy its first lead of the state tournament. Three pitches later, he stole home to cap off a five-run inning Thursday afternoon in an 11-2 victory over Jerseyville Post 492 at Schell Field to stave off elimination.
