Online Petition Wants to Investigate 'The Offsets' After Two Recent Deaths

July 17, 2018 - 7:21 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Have you ever been to "The Offsets"? It's an old rock quarry that's filled with water about 90 miles south of St Louis. 

Two people have died there in a month, and now there's a petition online asking the state rep to investigate the drowning deaths.  There's also a Facebook page urging people not to go there. 

The owner hasn't responded.  There is a sign posted at the quarry saying "Jump and Swim at your own risk."
