Someone noticed a pile of discarded paperwork and informed a local news station after it had not been removed within a week. Documents with the personal information of dozens of former St. Louis University students were exposed near a dumpster in a back alley.  Most appeared to date back to the mid 1990's and correspond to library fines for late or lost books.  An SLU security team picked up the papers after hearing about the incident.
