Two Quad-City police officers will soon be featured on the true crime network Investigation Discovery, or ID.

The show will air two Iowa cases, including a garbage truck crash in the Quad-Cities that left Buffalo's police chief seriously injured.

The ID show BODY CAM will feature Buffalo Police Chief T.J. Behning and Davenport Police Cpl. Michael Schneider, who both were involved in the high-speed chase involving a garbage truck in September 2017.

The episode will air at 9 p.m., Central Time, on Tuesday, Jan. 15. ID on channel 246 for Mediacom subscribers, channel 285 for Direct TV subscribers and channel 192 for Dish subscribers. For full local listings, visit http://investigationdiscovery.com/channel-finder/.\u00a0

The episode will show body camera footage of the officers responding after Logan Shoemaker steals a pickup truck and lead police on a high-speed chase. Schneider spots the vehicle, but it refuses to stop and speeds off through Davenport. On a dusty gravel road, the suspect tries to elude police by stealing a garbage truck.

As Chief Behning attempts to block the truck's path, he is struck when the truck crashes into his squad car.

Shoemaker, 21, of Davenport, was sentenced in August to up to 58 years on a number of crimes, including attempted murder of the police chief.

The episode also will feature Centerville Police Officer Andrew Teeter, who was charged by a man armed with a weapon and faced with the option of using deadly force to defend himself.

Each BODY CAM episode tells multiple stories with officers sharing their perspectives. From domestic disputes to ambushes and traffic stops gone dangerously awry, profiles show how quickly a seemingly routine situation can escalate into tragic altercations.

Davenport officials may soon give local law enforcement the ability to shutter massage businesses that aren\u2019t run by state-licensed operators as a way to crack down on prostitution rings that operate under the guise of being legitimate massage therapists.\u00a0\u00a0

The idea was discussed Tuesday during a routine afternoon meeting between city council members and city staff, an early step in what could become a proposed city ordinance in the near future. As council members heard different enforcement options, city officials repeatedly referenced a desire to rid the city of any illegal businesses without putting too many regulatory hurdles on legitimate ones.

No concrete details about the prevalence of illicit massage therapy in Davenport were presented during Tuesday\u2019s meeting. However, the city has seen the total number of massage businesses grow significantly over the past years, and city officials have found potential issues during site visits in recent months, said Davenport City Administrator Corri Spiegel.

\u201cThis is an emerging issue for us,\u201d Spiegel said. \u201cWe\u2019ve seen a doubling of these types of businesses in the city really over the past year.\u201d

City officials are planning to\u00a0model a policy after an ordinance enacted in Des Moines last month. That rule gives Des Moines police the ability to shut down businesses that have not been licensed by the Iowa Board of Massage Therapy, which regulates individuals who practice the profession.

The proposal to create a rule in Davenport comes as other cities across the state have sought to put similar safeguards in place.

In 2017, Iowa lawmakers gave cities additional authority to create their own business licensing systems, legislation that was inspired by a city ordinance created by Johnston a few years ago. Other Iowa cities have taken similar routes to license businesses and do background checks.

But that\u2019s not the route Davenport officials are advising.

Sarah Ott, an assistant city administrator who has been studying how to draft a massage therapy business ordinance, told council members that the method of business licensing can be \u201cpretty cumbersome\u201d for legitimate operators. She also said more regulatory requirements for businesses may leave the city with fewer resources to enforce policies that target \u201cbad actors.\u201d

BARSTOW\u00a0\u2014 Investigators do not believe a woman found dead outside her\u00a0 home Monday morning had been there long, and she was not dressed for the weather when discovered.\u00a0

Sarah Hubbard-Gilbert, 36, of Barstow, was found about 7 a.m. Monday, according to the Rock Island Sheriff\u2019s Office. She was\u00a0lying in front of her residence in the 100 block of 186th Street North in Barstow.

Gilbert was not wearing shoes or a coat, the sheriff's office said Wednesday. The condition of her body indicated she had not been outside very long.\u00a0

Her cause of death remained unknown Wednesday after an autopsy on Tuesday was inconclusive. Toxicology tests were pending.\u00a0

As a precaution, the case is being considered criminal until it can be proved otherwise, a representative of the sheriff's office said. No one was considered a person of interest in the case as of Wednesday morning.

Three homes recently demolished on Davenport's West Locust Street across from St. Ambrose University are owned by Larry Whitty, president of Happy Joe's Pizza and Ice Cream Parlor, and his siblings, but the future use of the land is still undecided, Whitty said.

\"We're open to opportunities,\" Whitty said when asked what use will replace the homes. \"We have no immediate plans.\"

Whitty and his siblings also own three now-vacant lots fronting Ripley from the Locust Street corner going south to 18th Street.

With the recent demolition, Whitty and his siblings now own the entire square block between Ripley and Harrison and Locust and 18th streets except for the Kwik Shop on the corner of Harrison and one small home. And all the lots except for the Kwik Shop and the small home are vacant.

Matt Flynn, a planner for the city of Davenport, said the six vacant lots still are zoned residential and no proposals for rezoning have been submitted.

Possible uses could be commercial, student housing or market rate housing, he said, adding that \"there's nothing specific yet.\"

\"It's a good location. We're hopeful something is going to happen pretty soon.\"

Whitty said he and his siblings are \"happy to be a part\" of whatever redevelopment comes to this corner. \"Sometimes old becomes new with developments moving from the downtown up the hill.\"

Whitty also owns two lots fronting Harrison on the south side of 18th Street, where the former Cal & Bob's Quick -Shop Grocery Mart was demolished in December.

The father of critically injured Clinton firefighter Adam Cain is \"begging\" for prayers for his son.

Kevin Cain wrote Thursday his son's condition remains critical, and \"He is literally fighting for his life now.\"

The younger Cain sustained life-threatening injuries early Saturday in a grain-silo explosion at the ADM plant in Clinton. The blast killed Lt. Eric Hosette, 33, who left behind a wife and young daughter. A public visitation for Hosette is planned for Friday.

Meanwhile, Cain's father said his family is doing its best simply to \"function\" as Adam battles for survival.

The following was provided by City Administrator Matt Brooke, quoting Kevin Cain:

\u201cThe first (news) release on Adam's condition may have led everyone to believe that he was about to walk out the door in the next few days. That could not be farther from the truth.

\"Yes, he was off the ventilator for 12hrs. However, the type injuries he has to his lungs do not 'blossom' until 2-3 days post-injury.

\"The lining of the lungs swell and weep fluids much like external injuries. They will be in this condition for multiple weeks. With that comes time when Adam is in his most critical condition and has to fight the hardest.

\"Even the family visiting him can stress him. The doctors are doing everything they can to try and help him. He has times of good rest, times of restlessness, and times of hard struggles that are very scary.

\"I do not have enough space to give all details, but I wanted to give you a general understanding of his status: He is literally fighting for his life now.

MUSCATINE\u00a0\u2014 A material witness has been arrested in connection with the death of a Fairfield woman who's body was found Tuesday in Muscatine County.

Douglas J. Foster, 35, of Marion, Iowa, was arrested Thursday evening and charged as a material witness to the felony of murder in the first degree in the death of Lea Ponce, 20, who was found dead along Iowa 38 between Muscatine and Wilton, according to a news release from Muscatine County Attorney Alan Ostergren.\u00a0

A cash-only bond of $50,000 is set for Foster, who is being held in the Muscatine County Jail.

The case is being investigated by the Muscatine County Sheriff's Office in coordination with Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation, Iowa State Patrol, Muscatine Police Department, Muscatine County Drug Task Force, Coralville Police Department, Iowa City Police Department, Cedar Rapids Police Department, Marion Police Department, and Muscatine County Attorney's Office.

In the criminal complaint, Ponce was last seen alive at 12:32 a.m. getting into a white GMC pickup truck associated with Foster at Walmart in Muscatine. She was found dead at 12:58 a.m. Tuesday on the shoulder of Iowa 38.\u00a0

Investigators found the truck at 4857 10th Ave. in Marion, parked behind a storage facility. After getting permission to search the facility, investigators found Foster hiding in the attic, along with some of Ponce's belongings in an area where it appeared Foster was staying.

Foster said during the interview he was hiding to avoid an arrest for out-of- state warrants. He also made post-Miranda statements that he had picked up Ponce at Walmart in Muscatine, and she insisted on getting out of the vehicle a few minutes later. He said he let her out and drove back to Marion, claiming he took a level B maintenance road, where his vehicle became stuck.

Investigators found Foster is wanted on a felony warrant out of Texas.

According to the release, Iowa law allows a peace officer to take \"a material witness to a crime into custody when there is probable cause to believe the witness would not be available for the service of a subpoena to appear at a subsequent hearing or trial.\"
