JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 20, 1979, Elmer Richard Hayes, entered the office of the Northwestern Savings and Loan Association in Florissant, Missouri, exhibited a gun to a teller and demanded money. The teller handed him $1,600 and Hayes left. A witness noted Hayes' departure and gave police a description of the vehicle Hayes was driving.
Detective Sergeant Jay Noser of the Florissant Police Department responded to the call. En route to the scene in an unmarked car, he heard a police broadcast describing the robber's car and the direction of its travel. Sergeant Noser proceeding in that direction saw a car which matched the description and executed traffic stop. The vehicle pulled to the right of the roadway.
Noser stopped behind the vehicle and told dispatch. While he was doing so, Hayes got out of his vehicle and started firing at the officer. Shots fired through the windshield struck the officer. Hayes then walked to the driver's side of the police car and fired several shots point blank. Noser was struck by eight bullets.
Noser survived with three bullets left in his body one of them lodged in his head. My dad was 215 pounds when he was shot and his weight went to 140, Noser's daughter told the press. He was a skeleton of a man. He had nightmares for years. He lost ribs, his spleen.
Noser never fully recovered and died in 2008. His death certificate said he died from infections related to gunshot wounds.
Noser's daughter, Cindy Shaw, has done all she can to keep her father's killer behind bars, appearing at every parole hearing as she did again last month. Keeping a promise she made to her father on the day he died. At some point in the next sixty days the Missouri Board of Probation and Parole will reach a decision as to whether the killer of Cindy Shaw's father goes free. We urge you to contact the Board of Probation and Parole and ask them to keep Elmer Richard Hayes behind bars.
