Missing Local Musician: Dora Magrath

Upon my normal Saturday web browsing, came across a post at True Crime Weblog about a missing University City musician, Dora Magrath. She released a CD, Heartstrings, at Cranky Yellow in January on Cherokee Street. If you like Cat Power, you'd dig her.

KSDK and KWMU picked up on this already; Magrath appeared to attend both Hampshire College and Webster University in recent years.

Thanks to the True Crime Weblog for links to a Facebook group, her CDBaby page and YouTube account.

[Edit, Monday, 11:30 p.m.: Yes, the commenter below was sadly right; Dora Magrath was found dead in St. Charles today. May she rest in peace.]
