Camdenton man dies in Springfield hotel following Shriners event

Robby Alexander

A Camden County man dies in a Springfield hotel following a night of drinking at a Shriner’s event.

The Springfield Police Department reports they were called to University Plaza Hotel last Saturday morning by friends of the deceased, identified as Robby Alexander, 37, of Camdenton. 

The police report states Alexander’s friends told responding officers that they’d put Alexander to bed the night before, checking on him numerous times throughout the night.  But when they checked on him the following morning, he’d stopped breathing.  The friends attempted CPR but were unable to resuscitate Alexander. 

The Greene County Medical Examiner’s Office has completed its autopsy but says it won’t release the results until toxicology tests are completed, which could take several weeks.

Alexander leaves behind a wife and daughter.
