A man walking his dog in the Nevada desert found the body of 10-year-old Jade Morris, who went missing after her babysitter was arrested for slashing a casino dealer last Friday. Jade’s body was found Thursday near an unfinished housing development in the northern portion of the Las Vegas Valley, the Huffington Post reports.
Family members visually identified the girl’s body Thursday afternoon.
“We are heartbroken today. It has been confirmed by family members that the body of … Jade Morris has been found. We pray for her family,” Natalie Wilson told The Huffington Post.
Wilson said the family wasn’t told the cause of death.
