(MISSOURINET) –  Missouri has a sex offender registry for the public to see and the public database could be expanded to show convicted murderers out on probation or parole.

The Missouri House has given initial approval to state Representative Lane Roberts’ effort.

Roberts, a Republican from southwest Missouri’s Joplin, says they would be removed from the registry after completing parole or probation.

State Representative Rasheen Aldridge, a Democrat from St. Louis, says a murder registry would put a “black cloud” over the individuals on probation or parole. One more vote in support, would send the bill to the Senate.
