Body of fallen Missouri Marine returns home

The body of a fallen marine from Missouri has returned home. 

Thousands of people lined the route along Interstate 70 yesterday to pay tribute to Marine Jared Schmitz of Wentzville.  

Every overpass along the route between Lambert Airport and to Baue Funeral home in St. Charles was filled with people paying their respect to the 20-year-old fallen marine. 

Schmitz was among thirteen service members killed in a terrorist attack in Afghanistan last month.
