Indicted medical executive lived life of luxury
Much of the money Dunard Morris, chief executive of two St. Louis urology firms, spent so freely wasn't his own, federal investigators say. The U.S. attorney alleges Morris looted his company, Metropolitan Urological Specialists PC, and lied to colleagues about his military record. A federal grand jury indicted him on Feb. 29 on charges that he embezzled millions of dollars and broke the nation's "stolen valor" law by posing as a war hero. He juiced his salary with unauthorized bonuses and reimbursements, the indictment says, spending on expensive cars, watches, jewelry, guns, wine, and travel, the government alleges. Metropolitan had fallen behind about $1.3 million last year in its taxes.
