Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is among the Missouri Democrats mourning the death of former state Rep. Ron Casey, D-Crystal City, who died Sunday of injuries suffered in a fall at a relative’s home.
Mr. Casey, 61, had represented southern Jefferson County in the state House from 2005 through 2013, leaving because of term limits. Earlier, he had served 12 years as a county commissioner.
