Neither investigators nor the company has disclosed the source of the live mortar round that blew up about 6:25 a.m. Monday and killed Rodolfo Romo, 46, of Fairmont City, and Tyler Muenstermann, 24, of Edwardsville.
Granite City Police Chief Rich Miller said Thursday that his officers have finished investigating and will hand over findings to the Madison County Coroner’s Office for an upcoming inquest into the workers’ deaths.
