Suspicious Death

Location:

Creve Coeur, Missouri

Unemployed

Grace Holland died in Creve Coeur, Missouri, of a single gunshot wound to her head while in the bedroom in the home that she shared with her fiancé, Robert Daus. Her death was ruled a suicide by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner's Office.

Grace's family members dispute the official cause of her death and say the Creve Coeur Police Department did not do a good job in their investigation into her death, likely because her fiancé is a firefighter with a local fire department. They seem to allege there's a "good ole boy" network conspiring against them in their quest for justice for Grace.

To add to the suspicion, a second live-in girlfriend of Daus, Dr. Sarah Sweeney, died just a few years later.

The purpose of this page is to publish all of the information about the case that I've received after a response to a Sunshine Law Request to the Creve Coeur Police Department.

After looking at all the files, you can decide what you believe happened to Grace Holland. Was it suicide or murder?

Audio Recordings

Note: Many people don't know this, but getting access to public records and organizing them all costs time and money. Sometimes it's a lot of time and money. That's why I typically only make case records available to my Patreon supporters who make it possible for me, through their financial support, to be able to spend my time and money to work on records. If you'd like access these audio files, please become a patron for as little as $3 by clicking here.
