// ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH METRO FRIDAY, JULY 24, 1998 B5 Ex-area travel executive is indicted in scheme to use alias for a passport Former St. Louis travel executive David K. Harris, who has been a federal fugitive since August, was indicted Thursday on a charge that he used an alias to get a passport from the United Kingdom. The indictment, returned in St.

Louis, also charges Harris with violating the federal "deadbeat dad" law. He allegedly left the United States to avoid more than $10,000 child support payments ordered in St. Louis County Circuit Court. The U.S. attorney's office said Harris has a son in Minnesota.

Harris, 52, formerly of Clayton, disappeared Aug. 20, two days before he was to have been sentenced in a federal tax-evasion case. Investigators said Harris skimmed $5.6 million from his Unitravel III Corp. through a scheme involving phony invoices for thousands of airline tickets. Unitravel buys tickets in bulk from airlines and resells them to travel agencies.

In March 1997, a jury convicted Harris of conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service, tax evasion, filing false tax returns and obstruction of justice. FAMILY PHOTO Murder victims Michael Tramble his wife, Rosalind; their 1-year-old son, Michael "Tre" Tramble Ill; and Rosalind's son, Reginald Sublet 12. They were found dead July 14 in the garage of their Ballwin home. Memorial parents said. They last saw the family July 4 Relatives of slain family try to find peace Continued from Page B1 Michael Jr.

and Rosalind were called soulmates, devoted to each other through five years of marriage. Reggie was the entertainment prodigy, singing with the Muny Kids and other groups. And Tre was the happy toddler who lit up his day-care center with his smile. "They are still a happy, loving Christian family. The difference is they have relocated," said the Rev.

Edwin C. Bass, of The Empowered Church in St. Louis. Mark C. Stoneman, a friend and co-worker of Michael Tramble told the crowd of the time Tramble realized that preparing for his bar exam would conflict with his son's birth.

So Tramble studied months in advance, so he could spend time at home before Tre's arrival. Tramble graduated from the University of Missouri Law School, passed the bar and was hired in 1996 by one of the state's largest firms, Armstrong, Teasdale, Schlafly and Davis. Rosalind Tramble's co-workers in nursing at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Belleville said she was a manager who cared about them and their families. Knowing that the Trambles' promising future was erased suddenly makes the deaths difficult to understand, Michael Tramble's during a visit to their home and church in Kansas City, Kan.

Michael Tramble Jr. gave an inspiring speech to unwed mothers there. Rosalind Tramble gave no indication of recent struggles with Reginald Sublet a former college boyfriend, Willa Tramble said. Rosalind Tramble had told her lawyer a few days earlier that Sublet had written Reggie from Dallas County Jail, saying he planned to come to Missouri to take the boy to Dallas and that he blamed Rosalind Tramble for his nearly six-month jail sentence for not paying almost $20,000 in child support. "We knew his anger was primarily against Rosalind," Willa Tramble said, adding that Rosalind's and Michael Tramble prosperity might have been "too much for him." While Sublet was jailed, the Dallas Police Department fired him.

He also declared himself broke in Dallas court proceedings. Michael Tramble Sr. said he had tried once to talk to Sublet about the custody battle and afterward left with a strange feeling that something seemed wrong with Sublet. In the end, Michael Tramble Sr. said, Sublet "made up his mind he would have the last word." 44They are still a happy, loving Christian family.
