Since the shootings at the Kirkwood City Hall in 2008, the family of the shooter, Charles Lee "Cookie" Thornton, has undergone a series of difficulties. The latest came this week. The Thorntons' house at at 351 Attucks went into foreclosure, for failure to pay a $93,000 loan that "Cookie" Thornton had taken out on the property in 2003. On Thursday, the family's possession were piled on the street, closing another chapter in the story of Kirkwood's Journey.
