ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Body found in car during traffic stop * Police found a dead man inside a car during a traffic stop Thursday night.

The man found in the car, Montrel Williams, 25, of the 10600 block of Vorhof Drive in St. Louis County, had been fatally shot. Officers stopped the car at Natural Bridge Road and Lucas & Hunt Road, apparently after an earlier car theft or carjacking. There was no word on the status of the driver of the car.

The man's death appeared to be connected with a robbery and struggle inside the car, said St. Louis County police Officer Shawn McGuire. St. John police asked the County Police Department to take over the case.

McGuire said he didn't know details about why police originally stopped the car. No one from the St. John police force could be reached Friday.

McGuire said detectives believed they had everyone in custody who was connected with the case. Detectives were piecing together what happened and hadn't released any additional details about the death.

The incident happened about 8 a.m. Friday on southbound I-255 near the Dupo exit, said Trooper Chris Currier of the Illinois State Police.

Police officers from Dupo and Columbia, who arrived before state troopers, said the man was confrontational and ran into traffic.

He was taken to Touchette Regional Hospital for mental evaluation.
